Sometime last week our brew club, the Indian Peak Alers, was approached by someone in our local community with an apple orchard on his property. He had attempted to make a cider last year with the apples but it did not turn out to his liking. After a brief conversation with a few club members the first, and hopefully annual ,"Indian Peak Alers Cider Festival" was born. The word went out to the club and on Sunday we had amassed around twenty people to help pick apples and press cider. It was a great day and and an absolutely beautiful setting. We ended up pressing around thirty gallons of fresh delicious cider. I believe that we will be aging this to enjoy at next years festival and there was also talk of getting a fresh rum barrel to age in next year. It was truly a fantastic time. I know that I speak for everyone in attendance in expressing our thanks to Bill and Sarah for allowing us to come to there home for this fantastic day. Here are some pictures of the event.
