Tours at Blue Bee Cider

We’re excited to announce the launch of our new tour program!

Discover the story of Blue Bee Cider on a one-hour tour and tasting.

Meet Blue Bee staff, get a behind-the-scenes look at our unique property, and experience our ciders in a guided tasting.

Public tours offered daily by reservation: Mon-Thurs: 4 & 6 p.m. – Fri + Sun: 2, 4, & 6 p.m. – Sat: 2 & 6 p.m.
