Sippin' Cider

A Taproom Tour and Tasting with Texas Keeper Cider

11 a.m. - 2 p.m.

 

 

 

Cider is making a well-deserved debut in Texas right now, and we want to bring y'all into the heart of the operation! Join us at the Texas Keeper Cider HQ in South Austin for a very special look into their process. Texas Keeper Cider makes their beverages in small batches with heirloom apples and unique local ingredients, so cracking open a bottle is a treat every time. And we have exclusive access to their taproom and cidery at this event! Join us an hour before they open to see how the cider is made and enjoy sips of their cider varieties, along with some brunch bites from the on-site kitchen.
