CiderCorpsCider050917Cider Corps, the Valley’s first cidery and taproom, will hold its first public event – a Veterans Day Open House – from 10 a.m.-1 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 11.

The veteran-owned business, on Robson just south of Main in downtown Mesa (map), will have 10 small-batch ciders on tap for sale by the glass (starting at $6) or growler (starting at $12).

From 10-11 a.m., people can get a free cup of hot mulled (non-alcoholic) cider or coffee to enjoy while watching Mesa’s Veterans Day parade, which ends two blocks away.

From 11 a.m.-2 p.m., veterans will receive $1 off glasses and growler fills of cider.

Ciders will include a line of pie-flavored ciders, including pumpkin, mixed berry, and peach cobbler.

Downtown Mesa sandwich shop Worth Takeaway will serve a variety of sliders for lunch, and the Different Smokes BBQ food truck will be on hand for dinner.

Cider Corps is owned by brothers Jason and Josh Duren, who began making cider as a hobby after Jason returned from a deployment in Afghanistan with traumatic brain injuries from two IED blasts.

Their ciders already are available at nearly 40 bars and restaurants locations in the Valley and Tucson.
