Bold Rock Roots

Founded by John Washburn and Brian Shanks in June of 2012, Bold Rock Hard Cider is America’s leading regional craft cider brand, producing accessible hard cider varieties with bold and refreshing flavor from locally sourced apples in Nellysford, VA and Mills River, NC. In addition to the two production facilities and taprooms, Bold Rock offers a Downtown Asheville, NC taproom & restaurant as well as a small outpost at Carter Mountain Orchard near Charlottesville, VA. Bold Rock is also now featured at Brewers at 4001 Yancey, a collaboration taproom in Charlotte, NC. Beyond brick & mortar locations, Bold Rock distributes to over 20 states primarily on the East Coast and has expanded beyond hard cider to include hard tea, hard lemonade, craft spirits and ready-to-drink craft cocktails.
