Peirce Mill Hard Cider Tasting
In 1820, water was not considered safe to drink, so everyone consumed hard cider or beer to quench their thirst. Hard cider was made at the Peirce Estate when Rock Creek valley was lined with fruit trees, and apples were processed at the nearby distillery, caddy-corner to Peirce Mill. Today, artisanal cider is making a comeback, and you can learn about the production of this historic beverage the old fashioned way.
Friends of Peirce Mill members are invited to learn about the Peirce orchards and distillery and the role of cider making in American history.
