Large place in a nice farmy setting. Four ciders on offer during the free tasting, which you can do before touring the facility. Two ciders are on draft, two are sampled from bottles. Tasty enough.

Pretty low-key place located right off 151. Very barebones compared to the well-oiled machine that is Devils Backbone. Bold Rockís basically a barn with a tasting table inside. The bathrooms are porta potties located behind the barn. The prices canít be beat - sample flights are absolutely free. The selectionís limited to their 4 offerings. The ciders arenít particularly complex or noteworthy. Overall, not an essential visit by any means.

This is a new cidery just about a mile North of Devils Backbone on Route 151. Itís a beatiful property, which is definitely
not a hard thing to come by in Nelson County. They had some delays in opening to the public and as of now there is a bar in
the pressing and packaging barn. They originally had plans to eventually build a brewpub but now plan to build a tasting
room with light snacks. As of now they are only pouring their two core ciders but they have some reserves coming soon. The
ciders are solid. Plenty of parking, the staff is nice and helpful. So within a 13 mile stretch on 151 there is now a
cidery, meadery, bar, homebrew shop, three breweries and about three wineries. Wow.
