Artifact Cider Project
With winter fast approaching and the risk to our team and customers increasing, we’ve made the tough call to pause dine-in service at our taprooms in Cambridge and Florence until further notice. Sunday was the last day to enjoy ciders on-site for a while, but we’ll be open at both locations for takeaway only starting this weekend.
We came to this difficult decision late last week and since then just learned that a part-time member of our Florence taproom team has tested positive for COVID-19—we’ve already reached out to anyone who may have been affected and are working closely with the board of health (our team member is doing well and the rest of our Florence taproom team has tested negative). This confirmed that this tough call is the right one for us for the time being.
So ttfn . . . takeaway/to-go for now. Look out here and on our website for updated hours, items, and info about how to place your orders and keep those fridges stocked.
We heart you guys—thank you for rolling with us while we roll with the punches.
Artifact Cider Project's taproom is located on-site at our state-of-the-art production cellar in Florence, Massachusetts. We chose the Pioneer Valley as our permanent home for the area’s proximity to our agricultural partners. Located just off of the Mass Central Rail Trail bike path that connects Florence to Northampton, Easthampton, Hadley, and Amherst, our taproom features up to 14 tap lines with our ciders, as well as special cellar projects, cider punch, and occasional guest collaborations.
We have partnered with Wheelhouse on the taproom food program, which features a limited menu of seasonal flatbreads and snacks. Wheelhouse is a catering and events company from Amherst, Massachusetts, that makes fresh farm food, prepared from scratch, and is co-owned by Jake Mazar, one of our co-founders.
Artifact Cider Project produces craft cider in a variety of styles by respecting tradition, but refusing to let it limit us. Using local apples and innovative cidermaking practices, we create ciders that are as authentic, eclectic, and forward-looking as the region they come from.
