Hours of Happiness

Many have gotten into the groove of working from home, as well as home-schooling, and after a longer-than-long day, you just want to sit in the backyard, crack open a chilled grown-up beverage, and relax, but ugh … the fridge is bare, and who really wants to go to the store for just one or two things? This all-too-familiar situation can easily be resolved, thanks to Finnriver’s monthly Cider Stoke Club, named after the “cider stoke” sessions at the cidery, where the inspiration and technical aspects of each cider’s process are discussed. Along with weekly virtual events to discuss cider-related topics and the month’s selections, club members receive a variety of seasonal and unique small-batch special releases not typically found in stores, shipped directly to their front door. There are two tiers of the club: the Cider Stoke with three bottles per month ($39), and the Super Cider Stoke with up to six per month ($99) and access to a special monthly Q&A session with Finnriver’s head cidermaker, Andrew Byers. The club is offered nationwide, but for residents of Washington, Oregon, California, and Colorado, Finnriver offers free shipping as an added bonus.
