Even given the COVID situation, the staff at Beaver Valley were cold, and almost rude - which was weird considering how pleasant everyone else in the County is. They seemed unwilling to serve us at first. Even once I realized they were trying to conserve tasting glasses, it still seemed strange how we were treated. I was there to taste cider, and to buy some. I tasted four ciders and wasn't impressed by many of them. And then when I saw the prices per bottle, well, I gasped and only ended up buying two bottles. Which came to $26. Boutique cidery prices indeed. Perhaps they will be better when the world is. I don't think I will be back until then.

Response from John M, Owner at Beaver Valley Orchard and Cidery
Responded 11 Oct 2020
Thank you for your review. I'm disappointed to hear that your experience was less than stellar. As you can see from our other reviews, your experience was an unfortunate exception. Thanksgiving, being the busiest weekend of the year, does tend to put a strain on our resources. Nevertheless we always strive to deliver an outstanding customer experience. Perhaps in future you will afford us another opportunity.

Beautiful property. Nice customer service. Free tasting was a plus! We didn't really enjoy the ciders very much because i guess we were expecting it a bit sweeter ( our fault, not theirs) . Though we still ended up buying a bottle and will still come back next time if we are in the area. Really enjoyed the visit.

We heard of this cidery from the owners of the Willow Trace B&B. We'd never heard of a cidery before, and thus made the immediate decision to go check it out. We were not disappointed. Entering the property, you pull up to a cute, lovingly restored old barn which is the home to the cidery. A tasting area and a small shop and bathrooms are on the upper level, and the lower level is the actual cidery itself. The press it outside in the back. It wasn't busy when we arrived, which was late morning. It was good timing, as we got in before a small tour of people arrived. The employee who managed our tasting was friendly and knowledgeable and told us about the cider-making process as we had the tasting. We learned that the cider takes a year to make - we had no idea it took so long to age and flavour the drink. They have 10 acres of orchard with a variety of apples and other fruits which they use to create their product. We sampled 6 flavours, and we felt the portion poured for us was generous, considering the tasting was free for three kinds (we paid the extra few bucks to sample the other flavours). It was enough for us to get the impression of the drinks and decide which ones we really liked enough to purchase. We were not rushed despite a tour coming in after us. We looked around the little store and through the windows at the cidery, and enjoyed how the renovation kept many of the old trappings of the original barn but updated it. Outside the barn are a few tables and chairs, a cutout for photo ops, and they have some game equipment. It would be a good spot to stop for a little rest and snack and let kids run around while adults do the tasting. It's cute, it's cozy, it's friendly and we enjoyed the little visit. We'd recommend it to anyone who is interested in craft drinks, ciders, and those looking for a little peaceful getaway spot. If you're just doing the tasting, it's a budget visit. If you're planning on buying, well, then obviously it's going to cost a bit more.

We just discovered this cidery while driving on the beautiful road 13 in the Beaver Valley area. The person who provided the tastings was super nice and friendly. We loved the Vinifera cider and now wished we had picked up more than one bottle. Lovely grounds.
