Blue Bee Cider

Sweet Juice Dry Cider

Virginia’s first urban cidery, Blue Bee Cider is located in the historic Scott’s Addition district of Richmond, VA. Our ciders are made with rare and heirloom variety Virginia apples that are prized for their tannin, acidity and flavor.

One of Virginia’s native bees, osmia lignaria, or the Blue Orchard Bee, provided the inspiration for our cidery’s name. These hardworking bees are solitary and wild, emerging early in the cool spring just in time to pollinate apple blossoms.
