Cideries in East Tennessee
Adult getaways usually have a brewery or winery on the list for a trip, but recently, ciders have become very popular, and so have cideries. Visiting a cidery is a lot of fun because it is out of the box and who doesn’t love hard cider? Whether you’re a hard cider fan or not, the unique orchards promise gorgeous views and great memories. Here are a few cideries Whitestone Inn recommends.
Wylie Cider Barn
This adorable cidery is located in the FoxFire Mountain Adventure Park in Sevierville, TN. Some say it’s the hidden gem of Pigeon Forge. The charming barn is where you can taste-test the homemade ciders for free. The family-owned mill is known for its cozy atmosphere, and the southern hospitality is second to none.
Gypsy Circus InCider Taproom
Located in Kingsport, TN, this is the first cider bar in Tennessee, as well as the first craft cidery in the state. Not only can you try out any of the 20-tap ciders, but you can also eat at The Bohemian restaurant, check out local artists at the Artistic Wonderment Wall, or test out your artistic abilities at their Chalk the Cafeteria area. This cidery will keep you entertained for hours, no doubt.
Apple Barn Cider House
This Sevierville Cider company has been around since the 70s. Apple Barn Cider House offers hard ciders crafted on-site for free samples and purchases. Whether it’s outdoor seating or checking out the restaurant, this pet-friendly cidery is a great visit.
Tennessee Cider Company
This is Gatlinburg’s first Hard Cider tasting room that offers authentic Appalachian food and cider. It’s a great place to visit after a long day of touring Gatlinburg. You can taste any free samples on the draft and enjoy their seasonal flavors. Apples are pressed daily, so you have ensured the freshest cider.
