Travel: Bold Rock Brewery #hardcider #VirginiaDraft @NellysfordVA

We recently met friends for an afternoon of relaxation, and our wanderings dropped us off at Bold Rock Hard Brewery (45 minutes SW of Charlottesville, VA). Impressive place! There is a view of the bottling operation, some reading tidbits of history and lore of the cider world, and of course, the beverages themselves. 

Each couple bought the sampler of four ciders: two were noticeably superior. Their standard, Virginia Draft, was nice and smooth. Their champagne substitute was also nice, Vat No. 1. We all agreed that the other two were a bit bitter to the palette, but not bad. We all prefer the blend of sweet and tart in a good hard cider, so the Virginia Draft and Vat No. 1 were more our style.

The decor was awesome. Very farm friendly feeling. Big hearth with a fire, gorgeous wood roof, outdoor deck and seating with games, lots of space and a great view. It would be an amazing place to hold an event.

All in all, we really liked Bold Rock Brewery! We bought an additional growler of the Virginia Draft to take home.

  1. This looks like a fun place for a date night. I'd love to visit with my husband.

  2. I'd take my friends here when they visit from out of town.It's something a bit different and would be more memorable and fun.

  3. We are always up for something new. Sounds like a good time

    1. It's really pretty there, too. Kinda in the country, so it made for a nice drive. :)
