Cider lovers now have an additional day they can visit Argus Cidery, on the road to Dripping Springs.
Starting this weekend, the cidery will be opened from 1 to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. To celebrate, Argus is offering its draft Ciderkin — the sessionable cider found in six-packs outside the cidery — at a special price of $3 per glass.
Plus, you might find other boozy apple treats in the Argus tasting room that aren’t available anywhere else. That’s where the majority of Argus’ experimental releases and other special-format fruit fermentables (like my personal favorite, the Tepache Especial made with fermented pineapple) get released.
The cidery offers cider flights, as well as bottles of cider that you can enjoy onsite or to-go.
Argus, Austin’s first hard cider company, is located with Last Stand Brewing and Revolution Spirits in the same complex off Fitzhugh Road, where Jester King Brewery and Treaty Oak Distilling are also situated. Many of them share similar tasting room hours, so it’s easy to make a day trip out of visiting these boozy spots.
