Apple Pressing Demonstration

November 22 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

We’ve used old cider press (from 1874) in our taproom to press apples for our home brew cider when Sage Bird was only a dream. It’s what gave us access to cider specific apple varieties, and really opened up the cider world to us.
So we are taking it outside and putting it to use by showing off its pressing skills all afternoon on Sunday. Stop by anytime, grab a glass, and see our press in action. Then months from now, come back for the cider you watched (and maybe even helped) press!
Thanks for all your support in helping Sage Bird be successful and safe while opening in COVID, and thanks for celebrating our first Cider Week Virginia! Cider Week Virginia is all about celebrating the Virginia tradition of crafting hard cider and raising awareness about cider’s growing popularity in the Commonwealth.
As always, we will continue to ensure a safe and clean environment with social distancing, mandatory face masks, and regular sanitizing of our space.
