A Manchester apple cider startup is pollinating the shelves of a few local retailers.

Blue Bee Cider is now available at Caboose Wine & Cheese, Corks and Kegs, Ellwood Thompson’s, Libbie Market, Camden’s Dogtown Market and both Once Upon a Vine locations.

Owner Courtney Mailey self-distributes the product through the Virginia Wine Distribution Company.

The Blue Bee Cider tasting room at 212 W. Sixth St. is open Friday through Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. Customers can also order the product through the company’s website.
