Hello there, Fort Smith!

 

 

Black Apple is headed to Fort Smith. And not just for a day-trip – we’re here to stay. Starting Dec. 3, you can find our all-natural hard cider in bars and restaurants around Fort Smith.

New to Black Apple?

Here’s a little bit about us. We make our cider the hard way so you can have a fresh and natural experience.

Our formula is fruit + yeast + time for a delicious cider that is free of additives, sulfites and gluten. We’re already in more than 100 bars and restaurants in Northwest Arkansas, including our Downtown Springdale taproom where you can dive into our rotating menu of eight ciders. And now we’re bringing our favorites to Fort Smith.

 

 

We’re launching our Fort Smith residence with a week of events December 3 to December 7:

Monday, Dec. 3 : Core’s Fort Smith Pub, 6-8 p.m. 

Tuesday, Dec. 4: Joe’s Grill & Cantina, 5-8 p.m. 

Wednesday, Dec. 5: Uncork’d, 5-8 p.m.

Thursday, Dec. 6: Fort Smith Coffee Co., 4-6 p.m. 

Friday, Dec. 7: Fort Smith Brewing Company, 5-8 p.m. 

 

Fort Smith is a perfect fit for Black Apple. Its deep history in Arkansas helped shape what was a booming apple industry in the 1800’s. Northwest Arkansas was home to dozens of apple orchards in the mid-1800’s.

When those apples overflowed the local shelves, a caravan of open wagons hauled apples down the Boston Mountains to the Arkansas River at Van Buren and Fort Smith. And in the 1930’s, Fort Smith’s Times Record published road maps so drivers could go on apple blossom pilgrimages. Think fall leaf tours, but for apple blossoms!

Over the last decade, we’ve watched Fort Smith become cooler and cooler. From The Unexpected murals to a renewed sense of life in downtown to a slate of passionate entrepreneurs that are committed to celebrating their town, Fort Smith has a bright future – one that we’re proud to be a part of.
