Red Clay Ciderworks, Charlotte

In this new NCBeerBuzz episode, we visit Red Clay Ciderworks, a small start-up cidery in Charlotte, specializing in small batch hard ciders made from locally sourced apples. We talked with owners Jay and Deanna Bradish as they get ready to open Charlotte’s first cidery at 245 Clanton Rd. in Charlotte. They’re excited to join the exploding craft beverage movement and to share unique, award-winning ciders. It all started when Jay was living in Sicily and caught a passion for all things fermentable! Jay soon turned to creating the perfect hard cider and he went on to win several prestigious awards and to overrun his garage at home. It was time to look at making the jump professionally and they share their story with us today.
