Get hyped for Philly Cider Week a few days early with a special cider cocktail competition! Bartenders from several local PCW-participating restaurants will revive classic 18th-century cider “cocktails” (technically the name cocktail wasn’t used during this time to describe mixed drinks, but we’ll let it slide) using the base of a delicious Frecon Farms Cider. Bartenders will have to create their own interpretation using one of three revolutionary era classics as their muse. Guests will have the chance to vote on whose cider cocktail is the most hardcore. We will announce the winner at the end of the evening at 7:30 pm. The winning bartender will have their cocktail featured as the cocktail-of-the-month at Schuylkill River Cider House!

Michelle Cudia [Tria Taproom]
Angela Yuhas [Schuylkill Cider House]

Frecon’s makes traditional cider using classic techniques and apples from their family orchard, which have been growing quality tree fruits since 1944. Using a blend of dessert, cider & aromatic apples, both heirloom & modern, their cider makers select the best balances to ferment into the final product. They’re proud to continue an American tradition of fine ciders that feature great aroma & flavor, recently recognized with bronze medals for the Hogshead and Crabby Granny by the Great Lakes Cider & Perry Association.
