Blue Bee Cider Closing for Winter Hiatus as Ownership Changes

When they reopen they’ll be at the current location but smaller space as they figure a new final spot.




The announcement was made on Facebook.

Hey folks!

We know you all have been awaiting any news about the status of Blue Bee Cider. We’ve been waiting to have things finalized before posting anything, but alas it is taking longer than we expected and we don’t want to keep y’all in the dark any longer.

Blue Bee Cider is in the process of transferring ownership from the original owner, Courtney Mailey, to two longtime staff members Taylor Benson (cidermaker) and Mackenzie Smith (Event Coordinator & Asst. General Manager). We’re very excited for this new chapter.

In regards to the location, the Summit Stables property has been sold but we are renting a much smaller portion of the property from the new owners for a short period while we find a new location. We will still have the tasting room, patio, and Cider Salon.

We do plan to share more details when we’re ready. In the meantime, you can get all your Blue Bee Cider needs through our online store and visiting local spots around Richmond.

We can’t wait for Blue Bee 3.0 and are very excited to share this journey with you all. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for supporting and loving us.

With love,

Courtney, Mackenzie & Taylor
