A little about the cidery:
Alpenfire was among the first cider apple based cideries in Washington State and the first certified organic cidery in the Northwest.  We love the challenge of working with these incredible apples to create traditional style ciders without the aid of sulfites or processing agents.  Using blackberries, spirits barrels and nontraditional fermentation styles to create northwest style ciders just adds to the fun.
