Blue Bee Cider

The Blue Bee Cider Experience

Blue Bee Cider produces artisanal ciders on a seasonal basis, pressing apples when they are ripe, fermenting them over the winter and finishing them for sale in the spring. When you come to visit, you have a good chance of meeting the cidermaker or a family member who wants to spread the joy of our craft. You can learn more about our team here.

Tours & Private Events

Blue Bee Cider has just opened its new location in the historic Summit Stables in Richmond’s Scott’s Addition neighborhood. We have a tasting room, patio and indoor seating, a cider production, and an urban orchard. Our tasting room is open on Sun-Wed 1-9 pm and Thurs-Sat 1-10 pm.

We will be developing a tour program in the future. Please stay tuned for details!

The tasting room can host private events and meetings in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings. If you have an event idea you would like to explore, please contact us at
