Wild HareFormerly located in Bluemont, Virginia, Wild Hare Cider is now open in the Leesburg Marketplace. Wild Hare is a boutique, micro-cidery that grows their own orchard in the heart of Shenandoah Valley. Using a slow fermentation technique, this cider is not conventional or too sweet. Although open in Leesburg, the cidery is keeping their current 3,200 square foot warehouse space in Berryville where some of the production takes place. Come out to Leesburg Marketplace to get a taste of Wild Hare Cider! They’re open Thursday & Friday 12-5 & Saturday 12-6.
