Drink up this gem: Rapid Creek Cidery

Wilson's has long been known for their apple orchard, for a few years known for their cider, and should now be known for their gem tucked into the apple trees- the Rapid Creek Cidery.

Dash Coffee Roasters

The opening of a new coffee shop is a brilliant, blinking beacon on my radar.

Enter Dash Coffee Roasters.... Continue Reading →

Taste Test: Wilson’s Orchard hard cider

Wilson's Orchard, a gleeful orchard north of Iowa City that provides families with cider donuts and groves of apple-picking from August to October, recently started expanding their offerings. And while it's not available at their orchards, among a litany of other apple products, I was able to get my hands on four different flavors of... Continue Reading →
