Bellingham Cider Company
In a region dominated by local beers of all kinds, Bellingham Cider Company boldly enters on the leading edge of a brewing renaissance. The restaurant, set to open in February at 205 Prospect St., is nestled next door to Sylvia Center of the Arts and near the Whatcom Museum, where it will enjoy the bustle of Prospect Street and a pleasant patio view of Bellingham’s unfolding waterfront district.
The new spot in town will serve dinner in addition to house-made cider pressed from Washington (of course!) apples. The ciders are produced in small batches, and its website at bellinghamcider.com highlights ciders that are dry, semi-sweet, hopped, and with a Northwest blackberry ginger flavor. And expect to see other flavors, seasonal specials, and a Reserve Series.
Ten ciders will always be on tap, with 10 beer taps to match. Its walls, tables, and bars are all repurposed wood, polished and illuminated by open bulbs hanging from the ceiling. Bellingham Cider Company will be joining businesses like Cidra Cider Room and Honey Moon Mead and Cider in the growing cider minority.
