Blue Bee Cider

Sweet Juice Dry Cider

Virginia’s first and only urban cidery, Blue Bee Cider is located in the heart of downtown Richmond’s Old Manchester district at the fall line of the James River. The name for Blue Bee Cider is derived from a common name for one of Virginia’s native bees, osmia lignaria, or the blue orchard bee. These hardworking bees are solitary and wild, emerging early in the cool spring just in time to pollinate apple blossoms.

The tasting room is open Mon.-Wed. from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Thurs.-Sun. from noon to 7 p.m. Tours are Sat. and Sun. at 1:30, 3:30, and 5:30 p.m.
