We literally can't wait for these grey skies in Vancouver to open up and make way for the sunshine again. Patio season is almost here and we're so excited to feel the sun warm our pale faces as we chill outside with our friends! As the patios around the city start opening, here's one just outside the city that you should definitely check out.
The Fraser Valley Cider Company is a one-stop-shop for cider-lovers and patio-seekers. This cidery is steps away from its orchard and they have a tasting room with an epic patio that you have to check out. This country-style patio has a cozy look and feel of being on the farm. Relax in one of their apple-red Adirondack chairs and kick back with a glass of cider.
This place has some of the best cider you've ever tasted and it's completely local and handcrafted. Some of their mouth-watering flavours include elderflower, honey, raspberry, traditional scrumpy and seasonal flavours like ginger and smoked sage. You can try them all with a cider flight and grab a bottle of your favourite to take home!
Unlike bars and breweries in the city, this place is totally low key and relaxed. Locals bring their dogs with them and sit and chill for hours sipping cider and watching the sun go down. It's absolutely a come-as-you-are kind of place. Since it's nestled in one of the most rural parts of Langley, you can definitely get away with a little bit of a country look here!
The Fraser Valley Cider Company re-opens for the season on Friday, May 3. You can find them in Langley at 22128 – 16th Avenue and it's about an hour from Vancouver.
