BRADFORD — A local craft cider and winery will have a grand reopening following a short winter break at 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 10.
The event sparks the 2023 season for Twenty One Barrels Hard Cider & Wine. They will be open Friday from 5 to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 2 to 8 p.m. During this weekend, a local food truck U Wanna Pizza Me? will be available serving pizza and more. Local musician Mike Comstock will be performing on Saturday from 4 to 7 p.m.
Twenty One Barrels will have a variety of flavored hard ciders on tap including Kiss My Apple, Blood Orange, Coffee/Vanilla, Frosted Cranberry, Chai Me A River, and a new Oatmeal Cookie. They will also have 15 craft wines available.
Twenty One Barrels was founded by a husband and wife Danielle and Shaun Pierce, with doors opening in June of 2020, “shortly before the statewide COVID-19 shutdown,” said Shaun.
“Due to the pandemic, we were uncertain about what the future would hold and feared that our business would fail before it even opened. Despite our fears, we persisted,” said Shaun.
“Since opening our doors in 2020, we’ve become known for our gluten-free hard ciders, and ever-changing variety. We are committed to producing unique and high-quality ciders that stand out in the market and deliver a truly memorable experience,” Shaun said.
Twenty One Barrels announced via their Facebook that Crooked Handle has become a retail partner selling their hard cider on tap at their Springboro location.
Throughout the year, they will host various events including a Music in the Vines series featuring local artists which is held each Saturday throughout June to September. The series helps support a partner non-profit that meets three requirements: serving and impacting Miami or Darke County, registered as a non-profit, and having an engagement plan to help spread awareness of the non-profit’s mission during the music series.
“As we roll into 2023, we will continue to focus on quality and innovation to create a range of delicious and unique ciders and wines. We also have some exciting announcements coming later this year!” said Shaun.
