RICHMOND, Va. – Thursday is “804Day” in Central Virginia, and Buskey Cider plans to host a cider shindig at their cidery in the Scott’s Addition neighborhood.
“We love calling RVA home, and want to celebrate 804 Day on August 4th, aka 8-04,” said Will Correll, founder and CEO of Buskey, which opened three months ago. “How could you better celebrate living in such an awesome place than by inviting non-profits, musicians, restaurants, and other RVA businesses to come to our cider to celebrate 804 Day with us?”
HandsOn Greater Richmond, a nonprofit that helps people and businesses find volunteer opportunities across the Richmond region, will be on site. They hope to show those at Buskey all the “fun and flexible ways to get connected” with volunteer work.
Buskey will be donating 10% of cider sales to their non-profit.
Boulevard Burger and Brew will be selling non-GMO family farm raised beef and vegan sliders at the event.
Additionally, Ellwood Thompson’s will be collaborating with Buskey to create limited release Randall’d ciders through the use of their local produce to be served in the tasting room on 804Day.
Buskey recently began doubling production of their cider, especially the flagships “RVA Cider” and “45 and Trying.”
They will also begin canning RVA Cider, 45 and Trying, and the Citra Hop Cider.
“This will open up our 30BBL and 15 BBL tanks for other distribution special releases like the Citra Hop Cider,” Correll said. “Though, this will allow us to make certain tasting room batches on a larger scale so they can be enjoyed more consistently.”
A majority of the new product will go to Buskey’s distributor, Loveland.
The 804Day event will take place at Buskey Cider, at 2910 W. Leigh Street, Richmond, Virginia 23230 from 5pm-10 on Thursday, August 4.
