A Trip to the Finnriver

on December 16, 2014

One of our local cideries was having their yearly holiday open house this month. I’d never been there before and had heard a lot of nice things about it and thought “why not?” Fred was working so I grabbed a girlfriend and off we went!

They had live music – two unusually paired gentlemen. One was a tuba player and the other a guitarist. Surprisingly, they sounded very good together and I was impressed with their musical abilities.

While we listened to the music we had fresh from the oven (yes, they even have a super-sized oven in their outdoor gazebo that, I found out, is used for “pizza Sundays” in the summer – I must come back!) pretzels with spicy mustard and cranberry cider! Delish!

While waiting to join the next group in the tasting room we wandered around to look at the farm. In the summer they offer pick-your-own berries and various produce, meats, and eggs throughout the year.

A few bottles of wine and some cheese later (no, no, to take home), we were on our way after a lovely afternoon!
