Hey Ciderheads! Your pal and ciderist, Robby, here to drop some knowledge on you.  We have some exciting things coming up in the next few months in the Bull City Ciderworks fam.  First things first, I have got to tell you about Cider Jam!!

Saturday, September 22nd, we’re going to make some noise in downtown Durham.  We’re closing down the streets and bringing you the second annual CIDER JAM. We’re bringing you music ALL DAY, new ciders, and all the fun you can squeeze into a Saturday.  Our headliner this year is J Gunn and I am stoked! We are bringing hip hop to your ears that night, but some of your new favorite bands will be playing all throughout the day. We have official cider jam t-shirts and merch that will be available that day!  Best of all, this event is FREE! We’re going to have a great time and we want everyone in on the fun. If you have any interest in setting up a booth at cider jam, follow this link and sign up today!

The second bit of good news I have to bring you is about our cider releases. Jack and Oak 2018 will be released on the Friday night before CIDER JAM.  This year’s batch is next level. To celebrate this release we are going to offer this fall favorite in 4 pack bottles for the first time. The new packaging was designed by our ciderist, Mo. She has knocked this one out of the park and I’m so stoked for you to see it!  This will be available in the taprooms so get it while you can!

I got a little ahead of myself.  I have to tell you what’s coming up in the next few weeks! CIDERPOPS are coming back! We figured we would soak in the last little bit of summer before we have to bundle up for those chilly nights are here to stay.  Enough about the cold though, let’s get back to ciderpops. We’re going to have these frozen delights on Monday for Labor Day. Come early and come thirsty. There is a limited supply, so get em while you can.

September 7th, another new cider is coming your way and things will be getting spooky at the cidery.  How you might ask? Ghost peppers. That’s how. I know you spicy ciderheads are missing the El Matador.  You are in luck though. The Spooky Mango is going to light your fire! Different is delicious and this release is no exception.  We’re bringing the hotness back with a vengeance.

Speaking of releases, we have a new release scheduled every two weeks till the end of the year! We are on track to accomplish this with ease and we are pretty proud of this goal.  I need to keep bragging about the team. We accomplished something else that is pretty incredible. If you follow our social media, we have recently been posting about the GLINTCAP awards.  GLINTCAP is the Great Lakes International Cider And Perry competition.  It is one of, if not, THE biggest cider competitions in the world.  We won medals for all 8 ciders that we submitted!  Slow Ryed (wood aged cider) and Cherry Tart (fruited cider) won best in show! I just want to thank all the ciderheads and the entire Bull City team. We couldn’t do this alone, nor would we want to.  

The last bit of cool news I want to share is about the Exploratorium!  Our first batch of North Carolina apples will be ready for harvest in the next few weeks.  We have some amazing things in store for all you folks this fall.  Stay tuned to our social media or come by and see what's happening for yourself.  Tours are just about every Saturday.  Sign up online and come see me!

There’s a few more surprises coming down the line and a few big announcements yet to come.  Stay plugged in with us because you are not going to want to miss what’s happening next! Here’s a hint because I can’t help myself....  #CRUSHABULL
