Waves Cider Co. – 604 Nebraska Avenue – WavesCider.com

Waves Cider Co. opened up at the end of July on Nebraska Avenue. After owning Logboat Brewing Co. for six years, the founders wanted to branch out and open another spot for Columbia locals to enjoy. But don’t think this is a second location for Logboat—it’s an entirely different business. Choose between ciders, Logboat beer, cocktails, and nonalcoholic beverages with more beverages constantly in the works. The new ciders are also available in cans.
