Stem Ciders breaks ground on Lafayette facility

LAFAYETTE — A RiNo cidery has broken ground on a $7 million facility in Lafayette, planning to open a restaurant, taproom and production operation.

BusinessDen reports that Stem Ciders broke ground on the two-story, 30,000-square-foot facility Jan. 20. The facility is slated to open in the fourth quarter of 2017 and is will be located in the Vista Business Park, just east of downtown Lafayette.

Stem Ciders opened in Denver’s RiNo neighborhood in 2014. That facility will remain open.
