Urban Tree Cidery, announced last summer as "Atlanta's first cidery," has an opening date on the calendar. Urban Tree will debut its Westside tasting room on Saturday, March 26, according to a Facebook post. The team plans to pour its variations of cider until 4 p.m. or later, "if we are busy."
Owners Maria and Tim Resuta will offer two traditional alcoholic ciders and a regular basis, along with a rotation of seasonal concoctions. All ciders will be crushed and produced on site at the cidery's 4,500-square-foot home. The Resutas have said they will use their business to "support the community through a variety of programs, including Concrete Jungle and Trees Atlanta."
On Urban Tree's website, three flavors are currently listed, all checking in at 6.5 percent abv:
- Original: Described as "dry and crisp, tart European style, subtly sweet." Urban Tree suggests pairing it with pork, roasted vegetables, and cheddar.
- Classic: Refreshing and pleasant, sweet, bright. Pair with fish, fruit, and soft cheeses.
- Barrel-aged: Robust, strong, woody vanilla and oak notes. Pair with roasted foods, grilled foods, heavy breads, strong cheeses.
Complete, regular hours for Urban Tree haven't been announced. The cidery takes up residence in the former Eclectia Props space at 1465 Howell Mill Road.
