Let me start with the location. It's well off the beaten path - in that you do not just stumble on the place! You have to mean to go if you end up going. That adds to the joy of visiting. It's not in a high traffic area so patrons are genuine fans of great cider and quality service.
Next, let's talk about that service. I have been a handful of times. From my fist visit, to a visit when torrential rain had the place flooding like they were serving on the main deck of the Titanic, to Sunday run club mornings. In each instance the staff was kind and knowledgeable about both the cider and their customers. It's like visiting a cidery where everyone knows who you are even if its you're first visit.
Then there's the cider. If you're done with brands swinging between the cloyingly sweet and the slap you in the face dry styles you'll appreciate the variety and depth of the cider at Lost Boy. Their ciders are decidedly unsweet but noticeably flavor forward. Still, if you're looking for sweetness and depth their ice wine ciders have you covered!
Finally, if you want to know for a fact that the place you're visiting is genuinely good, look no further than the apple trees along the curb right along slide Lost Boy. Make sure to visit in the summer, grab a cider, and pick an apple on your way out for one last nod to just how pure and perfect a visit you had with these wonderful folks!
