Astoria is a special place. The people are as giving as the trees. A handful of our lovely friends picked all of the local apples they could find and together we crushed, grinded, and pressed this hodgepodge of apple varieties in the Fort George courtyard. After fermentation and conditioning with a mixed culture of wild yeast and lactic acid bacteria, we were rewarded with a beautiful rustic cider with aromas and flavors of apple rind, pineapple, earthy hay, wet stones, and kiwi. This cider is a great representation of our fantastic community spirit.
