Harvest and Halloween (Oct. Newsletter)

As usual, October is buzzing with activity at 1859 Cider Co.! That's why we decided to put all the info in one place; to let folks know whats going on and hopefully making it easier to join in!

First off, it's HARVEST which means we will be hard at work in the production area of the taproom, washing, chopping and pressing fruit. The AWESOME thing about our space is it was created with our patrons in mind! The open production floor allows you to COME SEE part of the process and have the chance to ASK QUESTIONS to the makers themselves. We will do our best to share this info with you on our social media. Here's a wonderful photo taken at the orchard we've been working with for crab apples. You know we love our acids! HI BRIAN!!
