More big news for the city of Hampton! The town of Phoebus is excited to welcome Hampton Roads’ first hard cidery. Two brothers with deep roots in the community plan to invest more than half a million dollars to open the cidery.
Tim and Doug Smith will launch Sly Clyde Ciderworks on 1.3 acres of family-owned property with plans to turn the two-story historic house next to the closed Smith Floragift building into a tasting room. There will also be a small apple orchard on the property.
The new establishment will create seven new jobs and purchase all of its apples from Virginia farmers. Sly Clyde Ciderworks plans to distribute their cider to restaurants throughout the region. The brothers are optimistic for a November opening.
