The Story

"Are you sure? It's really spicy. I'll give you a splash."

Memorial Day 2023. The art career is taking off. I have for the first time scored some multi thousand dollar commissions. The result is that all my bills are going to be paid (if not wee bit late). It's exciting. Summer is around the corner. The only thing in my way is the weather which has decided that all of early June will be subject to thunderstorms.

I met Dean of St. Vrain Cidery at Dry Land Distillery, right before my February Drawing Demo with the award winning Distillery. When it came time to choose the next Longmont business to draw for, they were top of list.

I went in to the alleyway cidery late may of 2023 to do my thing. I sit at the bar, try some drinks, ask some probing questions, and then get to drawing.

In an idea world, I'd drawing 3 pictures of 3 ciders, but I might have to knock that down to 2 because of the 6 or so other commissions that have landed on my plate. One of the drinks I tried is the Peach Agave, a cider that based on it's ingredient mix and high sweetness I knew I'll like. The Chokeberry looked like it will be wise to draw due to it's popularity. The Blu Duck caught my eye because its intriguing name would make for a great drawing. However I try my art drink on site for a reason. Sadly after a conversation with the owners, they inform me that it might not be available come time for the show, so I decide to hold off drawing it until further notice. However the forth drink was the Mango Tango.

The wife owner, Cindy gave me the warning from above. Many people can't finish a full 12 oz of the peppery concoction. This made me nervous. I am a whimp when it comes to spice. I can barely finish a basket of 300 sun Nashville hot fried chicken and it's rare that I get 2-stars at a Thai restaurant. The other patrons at the bar struggled to drink the Mango Tango as well. However I am strangely immune. Sure I can taste the peppers and I can't chug the stuff, but I'm not even reaching for the glass of water.

I enjoy the drinks and get to drawing the spicy Mango Tango and the sweet tree ripened Agave Peach Cider.

About St. Vrain Cidery

Location: Longmont, CO

What to expect: A huge Cider selection, clean decor, art wall


St. Vrain Cidery began with three friends having a conversation about a love for cider and the lack of places to find it in the Longmont community. Realizing back in February 2015 that there were no cideries at all in Boulder County, we jumped on the idea of being the first! We opened our doors in October 2016 as the largest all hard cider taproom in Colorado, with 36 taps of our own fermentations and others made around the state.

Our concept is an easy one: we want you to come try a large variety of different flavors and styles of cider and to get a sneak-peek at what the Colorado cider industry has to offer. We’ll introduce you to our own award-winning ciders and those from around this beautiful state.

About the Artist

The only thing I enjoy more than eating Colorado food culture is drawing it.

I'm M. J. Star. I moved to Colorado in 2019 and have been drawing digitally for almost 2 decades. In early 2022, I started drawing art that depicts Colorado's rich food and drink culture. I've been traveling the state going to various breweries, wineries, cideries, bars, and restaurants. I try their food and drinks, and transform all of that into art that celebrates Colorado's blossoming local food culture.

My shop features all original art work draw on my mobile tablet.
