With planning by Austin Design Cooperative, Artifact Cider Project has begun construction to open a second taproom in Central Square.
A new branch of the Artifact Cider Project is growing in Cambridge. Six months after debuting its first-ever taproom in the Western Massachusetts village of Florence, the New England hard cider makers have started construction on a second bar in Cambridge.
The yet-undisclosed taproom location in Central Square could open as early as spring 2020, Artifact shares today in an email newsletter. “We’re excited to bring more people together with great cider,” the announcement reads. “Having a brick and mortar presence on both sides of our state will give us new opportunities to experiment, collaborate, and make cider that celebrates the Northeast and the people who live here.”
Artifact is once again working with Austin Design Cooperative on the new space, the New England architecture firm that envisioned their minimalist-modern, white-and-green Florence cider house. Austin is responsible for other regional drinks destinations, such as Tree House Brewing Co. in Charlton, MA, the Alchemist in Stowe, VT, and Lawson’s Finest Liquids in Waitsfield, VT.
