Monday November 18th Cider University: French Cider with Joan Harkins

Meet the fabulous woman behind so many of our imported French ciders at our final installment of Cider U before we head into Winter Break. Joan Harkins, owner of Beauchamp Imports and FrenchCider.com, will be visiting us from Seattle for a special appearance with very special ciders perfect for Thanksgiving dinner. We are the only bottle shop in Bellingham that carries these products, so it's truly a unique opportunity to learn and taste from an expert. Get Your Ticket Here!

New! Our Bellingham Cider Co. Collab Release 

Please welcome 'New Moon' to our taplist! ⁠ We teamed up with Bellingham Cider co. to create this wit bier-inspired cider. A gluten free alternative to the ever-crushable, lightly hopped, orange and coriander infused wheat beer most popularly consumed under the Blue Moon label?! Impossible, right? Not when you have the talent and passion for cider making that Josh brings to the table. ⁠

This is hands down the best hopped cider we've had on draft. Your beer drinking friends just might add it to their list of favorites too. Get in and try it for yourself.

Elevated Food Options

When chips and artichoke dip won't cut it (don't worry, we still have those), we can now offer you a two fabulous plates.  Choose from the Hunter, cured meats & international cheese with gluten free crackers and all the fixings, or the Gatherer, heaping servings of hummus with red pepper jelly and crackers and fresh veggies for dunking.  Both are served as either individual or sharable portions!
