Oh, the weather outside truly is frightful...
This week of snow really is something, isn't it? To celebrate (or commiserate) these chilly days, we are offering some Snow Day Specials! Through Friday, enjoy $1 off each of these snowy beauties: Kulshan's Go East IPA, Lost Giants' Mountain Rose, Snowdrift's Forefathers and Winter Red, One Tree's Snowglobe, AND our two hot drink specials - Bootlegger Toddy and Hot Spiced Wine! Because when it's this cold out, we might as well have Happy Hour all the time!

Unfortunately, due to today's road conditions, we are closed all day Wednesday. The forecast says we should be ready to roll again tomorrow though, so the deals will be there for you Thursday and Friday!

We appreciate those few and mighty of you who were brave enough to visit us Monday and Tuesday. We hope that you'll come back later this week and bring your cabin-fevered friends with you! We all deserve an extra cider or two after this snowstorm - and we've got lost time to make up for!
A Friday night we've all earned after this snow - Oysters and live jams!

Paellaworks will be back with a grilled oyster pop-up! We loved what they served up so much on NYE (so much so that they sold out) so we're doing the exact same thing! Then The Band of Havilah will be here to serenade us while we eat said delicious oysters. Match made in heaven? We sure think so. No cover, just come on in and enjoy!
As you are probably aware by now, we love pairing cider with crafts. It just makes perfect sense! We've still got tickets available for 2 great DIY events coming up and 2 more events in the works. Stay tuned for details!

First up, Inherent Handmade Goods is back with another painting event! Sunday, January 26th @ 6 pm, Becca will be back with all of the supplies we need to customize your very own set of coasters. For $35, you will get your choice of 4 coasters, paints and supplies to decorate, and a flight of cider. These coasters will make great Valentine's/Galentine's Day gifts!

The second event we have booked is another fun evening with Botanikal! We loved having them over the holidays for their two sold-out wreath making events. On Tuesday, February 18th, Colleen will be here with all of the plants and supplies to create our own terrariums! Included in your ticket price are all of the supplies for your own terrarium, plus a flight of cider. This craft is the perfect thing to brighten up your home during these cold winter months. It could also be a good belated Valentine's Day gift. Or buy your sweetie a ticket to the event and surprise them with it on the 14th! Just click the button below to sign up.

Thanks for letting us tease you with delicious looking ciders in your inbox when we're closed and you can't actually enjoy them just yet. We hope you'll come by before the weekend and enjoy those Snow Day Specials with us! Cheers, friends!

The events start coming and they don't stop coming! 
Just a quick reminder to start off with - We've got IMPROV tonight (Wednesday) and it's totally free! The fun starts at 7 pm. The Slacks have dazzled us with their classic improv games a few times now and they never disappoint. They're also bringing back Deep Flight Simulator, a MUSICAL improv group! Both sets were incredible last month, so we are so excited to have them back twice in January! If you can't make it tonight, be sure to put their January 22nd show on your calendar now. You won't be sorry!
SEX TRIVIA with WinkWink
Tomorrow (Thursday) @ 7 pm

WinkWink is back at Thousand Acre again to host Sex Trivia! Last time, we had a completely packed house and we anticipate this being no different. Be sure to show up early and prepared to get sexy - on paper, that is.

From WinkWink: What is "teledildonics"? What's the average length of a penis (and does anyone actually care)?

See how your sex education measures up! The best part? You can take your new knowledge home to put it to the test (or the testes). HEYOOOO!

-Teams should be 2 to 6ish people

-Bring $3 per person (for real this time) for the grand prize pot. Sex toy and cash prizes for winning teams.

 
Cidertails: Manhattan - Saturday @ 7-10 pm (or while supplies last!)

This Saturday, Alexine is back again with her monthly Cidertails series! Featuring most of the classic ingredients you'd expect - Vermouth, orange peel, and cherries - plus some great whiskey-esque cider, this Manhattan Cidertail won't disappoint! 🥃
Book Club - Sunday @ 6:30 pm

This month, the book is "Before We Were Yours" by Lisa Wingate. There is still time to catch up and enjoy a great discussion this weekend!

Cider U Tickets!
Cheers!

We hear some of you are attempting a Dry January!
How about a Dry Cider January instead?
After the holidays are over, a lot of us are tempted to try "drying out" our livers. We get it! The end of the year is rich with delicious foods and beverages, not to mention plenty of reasons to overindulge in such things. If you are ready to commit to a full 31 days sans vices, we support you! We have lots of great non-alcoholic drinks and our Gatherer Plate is full of fresh veggies. But for the rest of us who are less inclined to make major lifestyle changes in the new year...
We have 2 new House Specials!

Bootlegger Toddy
Our love for Sea Cider's Prohibition led us to this unique spin on a hot toddy. Sure to warm you all the way through to the bones, this drink is perfect for the coldest months of the year we're about to experience. Made to order, with love.
Prohibition Cider + Black Tea + Lemon + Honey

Hot Spiced Wine
Yep, the name pretty much tells you everything you need to know, doesn't it? Leaving some of our staff speechless and smiling - this is quite possibly the coziest drink we've created so far.
Red Wine + Apple Juice + Mulling Spices + Orange + Cinnamon Stick

The Snowglobe won't be around for much longer, so enjoy it ASAP, but the Sunday favorite Ciderlada is here to stay! We will be debuting one more seasonal special very soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
Resolve to learn as much as possible this year! 
Starting Monday, January 13th at 7:30 pm, we're launching a new semester of Cider University! For the first class, we're offering another session of Cider 101. For those of you who missed out on this last time, now's your chance to come learn the basics of cider with the owner of Thousand Acre Cider House, Jenny! Included in your tuition is an hour+ lecture and discussion, a curated tasting flight, and a 15% off coupon for bottles to take home after class. Since you awesome folks are reading our newsletter, we want to thank you with a discount code! Use the code CIDER4LIFE at checkout for 20% off tuition! We've got a few classes scheduled already and this code will be good for all of them.

Cider U: Cider 101
Yep, it's happening again! Who doesn't love to laugh and drink an evening away? We've got the beverages covered and have invited our friends The Slacks back to assist with the LOLs part. Come enjoy some great FREE improv with us on Wednesday, January 8th & 22nd at 7 pm.
Have a great first week of 2020! See you soon!

It's almost the new year
and we're filled with so much cider and cheer!
Happening NOW: Red Flesh Cider Tap Takeover!

We have loved exploring the unique side of ciders with you all for the last 4 months. For one last interesting shebang to round out the year, we are featuring a few of our favorite makers with 4 different red flesh ciders. These beauties are all made strictly from apples, with the gorgeous pink and red hues coming from their - you guessed it - red flesh. Full pours are available, but the real beauty is in the drool-worthy ombre flight. Here while supplies last!
NYE Oyster Pop-up and Cava Toast
Tuesday 12/31 5-9 pm

Can you believe that 2020 is right around the corner?! Let's celebrate the end of the 2010s in style. Knut of Paellaworks will be here to serve up delicious oysters! And because we know that this is an exhausting time of year for us all, we've decided to celebrate the EAST COAST ball drop! We'll do a Cava toast at 9 pm, hugs & kisses all around, and then it'll be time to either go home and rest or go to the next bar to celebrate Central time zone's ball drop.
Sparkles, glitter, and glam attire is encouraged, but not required.
No cover, just come celebrate with us!
Mmmm... Who's hungry?

Tired of too many nights spent cooking big, festive meals this time of year? We are too! Luckily, our Gatherer Plate offers a nice break from the heavy holiday meals we've inevitably overindulged in for the past month. With freshly cut cucumbers, peppers, pickles, and carrots alongside hummus, red pepper jelly, smoked almonds, and gluten-free crackers, this plate is perfect for sharing and snacking or a nice, healthy meal! We also have a Hunter Plate (meats, cheeses, and other tasty goodies) for a heartier option. Come check them out!
Thank you so much for making 2019 an epic start to our Thousand Acre journey. We can't wait to share more great ciders and fun times with you in 2020. Cheers, friends!

One week until Christmas!
Have you stocked up on cider?
TONIGHT @ 7:30 - Live Improv - No cover
Our friends The Slacks and Deep Flight Simulator will be here to entertain us! Come laugh with us!

12 Days of Cider Christmas Countdown!

Who knew signing up for this newsletter would get you an exclusive sneak peek of something this fun and festive?

For the 12 days we're open leading up to Christmas, we will be picking out a special (aka giftable) bottle from our cooler every day to feature for you! We'll kick off the festivities tomorrow with 2 Towns' Marissimo - A spectacular apple blackberry wine that pairs perfectly with chocolate. Come ask for a sample and maybe take home a bottle for you or a loved one! Check back on our social media platforms for what bottles are getting opened each day. (Alpenfire's Calypso and Finnriver's Lavender Black Currant Dessert Wine anyone?)
Cidertails - Saturday 12/14 7-9 pm

Our good friend, Alexine, is back at it again with another amazing craft Cidertail! December's tasty concoction is a Faux 75! This bright and herbaceous bubbly beverage is modeled after the beloved French 75 cocktail. While we don't want to give away all of Alexine's recipe secrets, we can tell you that it rivals most true French 75s we've tried! Available while supplies last.
Saltadena Pop-Up - Tuesday 12/17 @ 7 pm

Saltadena Bakery has created a deliciously sticky treat for us using one of our favorite ciders - Sea Cider's Prohibition! We will have "Individual Sticky Date Cakes soaked in Prohibition Caramel and topped with Gently Whipped Cream" available with a glass of Prohibition to make the perfect pair. For those who have tried Prohibition, you'll know that it's the perfect cider to put in a dessert. With its notes of molasses plus loads of rum and bourbon barrel character, this 12.5% beauty was truly meant to be made into a caramel. They're also bringing some Butterscotch Puddings for you to take home! Bottles of Prohibition to take home will be on sale. Bring your sweet-toothed friends!
Cheers, friends!
