Buskey Cider was highlighted on , about expanding production and their #804Day, this Thursday.
The cidery at 2910 W. Leigh St. purchased three 60-barrel fermenters that will allow it to double its production.
“The biggest fermenter we had was 31 barrels, so adding three 60-barrel fermenters (1,860 gallons each) allows us to produce double of what we currently do,” said Will Correll, founder and CEO of the company.
Buskey’s will host #804Day on Aug. 4, at which nonprofit groups, musicians, restaurants and other Richmond businesses will feature their offerings. Boulevard Burger and Brew will sell some of its food at the event, and Ellwood Thompson’s Local Market will collaborate with Buskey’s to create cider through the use of its local produce to be served in Buskey’s tasting room on #804Day.
