Overview
More
At Black Mountain Ciderworks + Meadery, we craft genuine cider and mead from local apples and honey. We embrace the terroir of our Southern apples, fermenting cider in small batches blended from heirloom apples throughout the harvest and pressed in house. Our cider is real cider, never filtered or pasteurized, and we never add sugars, concentrates, or manufactured flavors. With mead, we focus on hydromels, meads fermented with a higher water content to achieve a lower-gravity, more sessionable mead. We find that hydromels are more approachable than traditional higher-gravity meads because they are more cider and beer-like (but still gluten free), and quite suitable for serving on draft.

The only complaint was it is very difficult to find. Signage is small!!! Staff was knowledgeable and so helpful. Did not realize how much I liked Mead. We will def be back!

Strange af. We love cider but we stopped here and immediately regretted our decision. Creepy bartender and decor. Was looking for the hidden bodies. One and done.

We really enjoyed the refreshing tastes of the cider and unique meads. Highly reckoned on part of your travels through town. Its a bit hard to find but worth the effort and run by good folks.

Visited with a friend who loves cider and had been before. The owner was wonderful, passionate, and informative. Very helpful explaining everything as I'd never had much cider. Cider was great and I got a growler to enjoy at home.

Neat little hole in the wall place. Neat experience. Flavors were interesting to try. I'm not a huge mead fan, but most of the ciders had a nice taste to them. They were spot on describing the one as Earthy. It was definitely very, very...More

If you love cider and mead as I do (or even if you're a newbie), then this place definitely needs to be on your itinerary if you're anywhere near the place. Everything is done in small batches since the owner is committed to experimentation. Just...More
