Snow Capped Cider Introduces Exciting Mountainside Taproom & Wine Bar to Grace Colorado’s Western Slope

Austin, Colorado's Snow Capped Cider, a revered name in Colorado's apple growing and cider crafting scene, spearheaded by industry maven Kari Williams, is set to elevate the local beverage landscape with the unveiling of its newest venture - an alluring Taproom & Wine Bar nestled in the picturesque Cedaredge, Colorado. Anticipated for a grand opening in Summer 2024, this new establishment will be a beacon for connoisseurs seeking the finest craft ciders and wines the region has to offer.

“Colorado doesn’t always get the same recognition for its wine and cider as some other states like California, New York and Washington. We want to showcase the amazing fruit and produce that are created here in the Rockies,” says Kari Williams. “It takes a lot of extra work and care to harvest fruit in the mountainous growing conditions but the end results are absolutely amazing. The flavors that are captured from the Rocky Mountain terroir cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world. We are so excited to open a cozy retreat for everyone to taste what Colorado has to offer.”
