Went to Buskey Cider with my friend and we loved it!! The best cidery in Richmond. Our favorite cider was Watermelon Rosemary. DELICIOUS. Definitely check this place out. The staff was nice, high energy, and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!!
My wife and I, and many of our friends, are regular Buskey supporters. We have hosted several events there and converted people who said they didn't like hard ciders until they tasted Buskey. We even had Buskey Cider cans at our wedding. They do a great job keeping a wide variety of ciders on tap, and the flavors are well balanced, never too sweet or overpowering. I highly recommend this spot for anyone exploring the Richmond food and beverage scene.
I LOVE Buskey. Will and Elle have created an exceptional concept that keeps cider approachable to beer drinkers and cider interesting for cider lovers. I love seeing what they come up with and not to mention, I've had a wonderful experience with every person who works there. Whenever someone is coming to town and wants suggestions on places to go, Buskey always tops the list!
Cider is the result of the transformation of the fruit grown at local orchards and farms across the state, both crunchy sweet culinary apples in varieties you know (Gala, McIntosh, Granny Smith, etc.) and tannic bittersharp and bittersweet heirloom apples whose names may be less familiar (like Wickson crabapples, Kingston Black and Dabinett). Through the skill of cidermakers and the magic of fermentation, these apples, along with other fruits, herbs, botanicals and spices, develop complex flavors, expressing characteristics from light and crisp to rich and mysterious.
Whatever your taste, there is a PA cider out there for you. For beer-lovers, there are citrusy hopped beers; bourbon fans will dig vanilla-scented, woodsy ciders aged in oak barrels; wine-lovers can pop open Champagne-like sparkling ciders, or still ciders that rival the crispest Riesling. Some ciders are meant to express the terroir, or the soil and geography where the apples were grown, and some are packed with fun, irreverent flavors made simply for cracking and chugging.
