Brightwood Craft Cider- We’re Brandon Cline and Katherine Vance — Brightwood’s founders and cider makers. Katherine was born and raised outside of Chattanooga, TN, and Brandon hails all the way from the California coast. We met in Virginia almost a decade ago, and we’ve been cooking, fermenting, and creating together ever since. After moving to Nashville in 2015, we soon found ourselves experimenting and making small batches of cider in the basement of our little rental home on Brightwood Avenue. At first, we just had a couple of buckets bubbling away. We knew it was getting serious, though, when we had almost sixty batches going at once — determined to find the best blend of apples and the most compatible yeast strains. Fast forward four years, and we are now excited to be launching Brightwood Craft Cider in Nashville. We’ve worked hard on our process and recipe, and we think you’re going to love it. The experimenting continues — can’t wait to bring more varieties to the good people of Nashville!

Down The Way, Batch 1 and 2- Our flagship cider celebrates Tennessee and the Southeast. Down the Way is made using apples solely from orchards in our state and the surrounding region. We work with farmers each fall to come up with a balanced blend based on that year’s harvest — meaning every year’s Down the Way will be uniquely delicious. Down the Way is available on draft or in our 750mL bottles. We recommend popping one of these chilled bottles with good company and serving it in wine glasses or snifters. Drink up, enjoy, and cheers to our farmers!

Tennessee- is the 36th most extensive and the 17th most populous of the 50 United States. Major outputs for the state include textiles, cotton, cattle, and electrical power. Tennessee has over 82,000 farms, roughly 59 percent of which accommodate beef cattle. Although cotton was an early crop in Tennessee, large-scale cultivation of the fiber did not begin until the 1820s with the opening of the land between the Tennessee and Mississippi Rivers.

Uncharted Cider Company, Smith and Forge Hard Cider- is a hard cider fermented in the tradition of days gone by. With a rich amber color, 6% alcohol by volume (ABV), a distinct, not-too-sweet taste and a fantastically crisp finish, Smith & Forge is built to refresh. “There was a time when more hard cider was consumed in America than beer. Now hard cider is exploding again, but the sweetness of many current ciders can be a turn off to beer drinkers, and some of them are looking instead to spirits and crafts for variety,” said David Kroll, MillerCoors vice president of insights and innovation. “Smith & Forge is a strong, just-sweet-enough hard cider that encourages guys to discover -- or rediscover -- the world of hard cider.”
