Episode 23 - "I built my business on folklore": Courtney Mailey of Blue Bee Cider
Next up on the beverage parade, Virginia's OG historical quaff, CIDER! Courtney Mailey, founder and original cider maker, opened Blue Bee in 2012. It quickly became one of Richmond's most-loved beverages and since 2016 has resided in the old Richmond city stables in Scott's Addition. We joined Courtney at the cidery and she talked to us about wildling apples, blue orchard bees, her favorite cider experiments, and the process of opening Virginia's first urban cidery.
