Richmond, Virginia based Buskey Cider has started canning their cider lineup for the first time.
Will Correll, aka “The Cider Guy” and team opened the cidery on Leigh Street in the Scott’s Addition area of Richmond in April of 2016. In a burgeoning Virginia brewing scene, the response to cider in city has been strong. After nearly a year of being draft only, Buskey Cider – like many of their local brewery brethren, are going to cans.
The first release is RVA Cider, a 5.5% alcohol by volume cider named for their beloved city. Their most popular cider is semi-sweet, and made with fresh pressed Virginia apples.
“We have known for years that cans are better for both the product and for the environment. One of the best things about cans rather than bottles is that our fans can enjoy them with family and friends anywhere they go.” – Will Correll, founder and CEO of Buskey
Buskey RVA Cider cans will be distributed through Loveland Distributing.
