I love Bold Rock Cidery. The lines were long but moved fast. I split a flight, which included four samples (decent pours) for $7. I was more impressed with how great the food was. I got the Bold Harvest Salad and split the garlic fries.

What a beautiful place! The staff was friendly and helpful. Sitting out on the deck was just perfect. But the air conditioning inside was nice too. Nice little museum/display and view of the cider works.

I believe it is $7 or $8. Not expensive! That's 4 samples, they're small glasses, maybe 4 oz each.
