NEW 'Muzzle of Bees' Flavor Release! Label Design by Wilco (Seriously!)

We love Chicago, we love Wilco, and we love bees, so we made a new cider that pays tribute to all three! Our brand new special release is called Muzzle of Bees after one of our favorite Wilco songs. We reached out to the band to ask if we could use the name and to share our plans for the cider, and we were thrilled when they said YES! They even offered to design the label. Team Wilco could not have been nicer or more supportive and we’re even bigger fans than we already were!

Honey from our bees and elderflower make this cider special. It will be available at our taproom only! A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Hive Supply to support our local Chicago pollinators. Stop by our taproom Saturday, October 12, to get your hands on some of this exclusive new cider and support our local bees while you’re at it. The fun starts when we open at noon!

Four years ago we poured the first pints of Right Bee Cider at Paddy Long’s. Now it's our fourth birthday, and to celebrate we're turning Paddy Longs into the Right Bee Cider taproom! We’re taking over the taps for four days, and completely transforming Paddy’s into our home.

Come join us for four days of cider, food, and friendship!

The Events

The Cider Menu

Right Bee Lime
The G&T (gin and tonic) of the cider world. A balanced citrus cider that finishes with a clean acidity. 

Right Bee Clementine 
You're going to want more than one. There's clementine, but take another sip and you can pick out some rosehip, cinnamon, and notes of hibiscus.

Right Bee Berry Blend
Our heaviest, darkest cider provides the perfect nightcap. A port-like cider with a beautiful raisin and currant undertone. 

Right Bee Melon
Sweet and tangy. A touch of citrus, honeydew, and pineapple make this session cider a RBC team favorite.  

Right Bee Hopped
Our classic dry cider with New Zealand Motueka hops added for a funky and tangy hoppy citrus twist. 

Right Bee My Thai
A hint of Thai banana and Thai Rooibos make this a truly unique experience. Balanced and clean. 

Right Bee Rosé
We took our dry cider and dumped as many blueberries from the Logan Square farmer's market as we could fit in the tank. Roedger Brother's blueberries make this a "crushable" cider you can drink all night long.

Right Bee Blossom
A touch of lemon myrtle and cherry blossom lend a wine-like quality to this gem. Spring in a glass! 

Right Bee Koval Gin Barrel
Our dry cider aged for 5 months in a Koval Gin Barrel. Juniper, creamy vanilla, toasty, acidic, delicious. By far the most complex cider we have ever made. 

Right Bee Lemon Lavender Firkin 
A lemon BURST overwhelms your senses then a pleasant wave of lavender will wash over you palate as you enjoy this time-tested RBC classic. 

Right Bee Dry 
Just fermented apples. No back sweetening, no additives - just pure hard apple cider. Never from concentrate, no sulfites, no preservatives, 0 grams of sugar. A truly dry cider.

Right Bee Semi-Dry
Fermented apples and a drop of honey from our own beehives. Light, crisp, and refreshing, with just a touch of sweetness. Our blend of fresh-pressed American grown apples are fermented dry with a champagne-style yeast.
