Seek-No-Further Cidery now open in Granville

Written by on June 28, 2021 in Cider - No comments

The Bancroft Bed & Breakfast located at 120 E. Elm Street in Granville now has an additional amenity: a cidery.

The B&B owners have converted the barn immediately behind it into the Seek-No-Further Cidery — the name is taken from a type of apple. The cidery has been under development for over a year and opened on June 12. Expect to find two house-made ciders, a guest cider from Mad Moon, plus several craft beers on tap, including one from Homestead. Cocktails, wine, and Slushies are available as well.

Co-owner and cider maker Trent Beers is focused on traditional New England-style ciders. There is a dry cider made with 50% Golden Russet apples and Wickson Crabapples from Maine, with the remainder of the apples being sourced locally from Legend Hills Orchard. Their second offering is a semi-dry cider made entirely with local apples, plus honey sourced locally from Latshaw Apiary. Continuing the Buy Local trend, Beers brings in cheese, charcuterie, and desserts from Black Radish Creamery. Plans moving forward include using local apples from Charlie’s Organic Apples from Windy Hills Apple Farm in Newark, Lynd Fruit Farm in Pataskala, and peaches from Branstool Orchard in Utica.

While the B&B house is well over 100 years old, the barn itself was built in 2014. It has been nicely fitted out with the cidery, a small bar, and drink rails on the ground level. The comfy second level features white oak flowing, a Franklin stove, seating for several dozen, and is decorated with some interesting Denison memorabilia.

And for the lazy days of summer, there is a garden style patio complete with a fire pit, and seating for two dozen more patrons. Hours are Tuesday – Thursday from 4-10, Friday 4-11, and Saturday 12-11. Be forwarded, there is no sign on Elm Street for the cidery. It is directly across the street from Subway and Elm’s Pizza, and directly behind Park National Back which is on E Broadway in ‘downtown’ Granville.
