First look at Cyanide Cider

There’s a new cidery on the scene in Music City, located off Nolensville Pike and two miles south of GEODIS Park.

Cyanide Cider is Nashville’s brand new cidery, situated south of downtown in the Woodbine neighborhood.

From the owner of East Nashville’s Crazy Gnome Brewery, the cider bar at 410 Woodbine St. serves hard cider, craft beer, and made-to-order food (we’ll get to those delicious details later). After a soft opening weekend, the business is gearing up for its grand opening on Saturday, June 29.

The cider

Cyanide makes its dry cider from not-from-concentrate juice with no added sugars and takes a “blend-in-glass approach” in the taproom. In other words, bartenders and customers can personalize each glass of cider on the spot using craft sodas, organic juices, or simple syrups made in house.

“By keeping things dry until it hits your glass, we’re giving you a blank canvas to play with,” said owner Grayson Miller, who recently appeared on “Brewery Underground Podcast.

This is where Cyanide’s “Mixing Station” come in. Guests receive two dry ciders and two non-alcoholic options in beakers + two empty glasses for experimenting.

Want to branch out beyond cider? The bar will have 10+ beers on tap and a few other non-cider options.

The space

The taproom, tucked away off Nolensville Pike near Phonoluxe Records, features two main spaces: a cozy, low-ceiling room with a bar and a larger room with natural light and plenty of seating.

However, Cyanide isn’t the only business in this space. The cidery partnered with Birria Babe to establish a permanent location inside the taproom. Here’s what’s on the menu:

  • Crispy QuesaTacos (beef, chicken, or lamb)
  • Black bean nachos layered with cheese, cilantro, and onion and served with house salsas
  • Birria ramen bowl (beef, chicken, or lamb)
