New Hard Cider Collaboration Puts the Apple Back in Appalachia

ASHEVILLE, N.C. - Oct. 21, 2022 - PRLog -- Bold Rock Hard Cider is teaming up with Asheville Tea Company to put the apple back in Appalachia.

Their new hard cider collaboration, festively named Flannel Cider, hits the taps Saturday, Oct. 29 features Asheville Tea Company's beloved Spiced Apple Butter tea.

"We are huge fans of Bold Rock and this is such a fun collaboration," said Jessie Dean, Asheville Tea Company founder. "This new brew is like fall in a glass. Plus, being able to connect around the shared value of sourcing our ingredients locally makes this an extra special brew that highlights local apples in both the cider and the tea."

The Bold Rock team brewed this blend into hard cider to invoke the spirit of the changing of the seasons.

"When I was first sampling the tea I immediately thought of fall in the mountains which is my favorite time of year," said Geoff Happel, Bold Rock Head Cider Maker. "I was thinking about some of the images that were provoked and couldn't help but think about "flannel" season which is always a sure sign that the seasons are shifting.  To me it just symbolic of this time of year throughout our community: gathering, hanging with friends/family, and of course sharing some libations around the fire."

Flannel Cider is an herbaceous off-dry blend with notes of citrus peel and baking spices. The original Spiced Apple Butter blend is an ode to the traditional southern spread apple butter, and features rooibos tea, apples, cinnamon, cloves, orange peel and lemon peel.

"It's a great opportunity to highlight each company's product while showcasing the unique way cider and tea can blend to make something completely new and interesting," said Happel.

Flannel Cider will be available in both NC taprooms, Asheville and Mills River, starting Oct. 29 as well as their original taproom/cidery in Nellysford, VA. For info at or
