The Blue Toad Hard Cider Farm in Roseland, Virginia. The weather on Sunday is looking to be absolutely perfect! Allow Mom to relax outside and enjoy some local hard cider while the kiddos play by the creek.

This Mother’s Day we are featuring our custom Motherhood growlers that read “Powered by love. Fueled by coffee. Sustained by cider.” Each mom will receive a free growler fill with purchase. Additionally, each mom will receive a free Cidermosa – think mimosa, but with Blue Toad Hard Cider.

New Flavor Alert! Flower City Lilac

Rochester! Blue Toad Hard Cider recently released a limited edition cider in our Henrietta Tasting Room. We are calling it our Flower City Lilac, and we are so excited to have it ready in time for the 2017 Lilac Festival.

Flower City Lilac is a session-able lilac flavored hard apple cider that is clean and crisp with a flowery finish. This cider was produced by steeping dried lilac flowers in the cider. The final drink is 5% ABV.

Be sure to stop by our tent at this year’s Lilac Festival to give this one a try. Until then, we will also be serving it at our Henrietta tasting room.
