The City of Marietta, along with the owners of Atlanta Hard Cider, will hold a ribbon cutting for the company’s new site located at 1010 Roswell Street, Marietta, GA.

The ceremony will be held on Thursday, October 21st at 4pm. 

According to the announcement on the city website:

This formerly city-owned property was actively marketed by Marietta as a redevelopment opportunity. The City has been improving the Roswell Street Corridor for years with new streetscape beautification projects and building design standards. The new Atlanta Hard Cider site represents another success in the renaissance of Roswell Street and will be a tourist and local visitor draw into the heart of our community.

The City sold the property to the owners of Atlanta Hard Cider in April 2019 for $547,000. This event will signify the completion of Phase 1 of their project which is a 6,000 square foot building housing both their cider manufacturing operation along with a tasting room.
