Trick or Tria - Tria Taproom w/Ploughman

Spend Halloween "trick or treating" from Taproom to Rittenhouse to Wash West and sample artisanal ciders for just $5 a glass

On Wednesday, October 31, all three Tria locations will host Trick or Tria as part of Philly Cider Week. Join us beginning at 12 noon to try two different ciders from an artisanal producer at each location (that's SIX $5 ciders, available all day and night!) Cider producers will be on hand to chat with you from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m., but you can order the $5 ciders any time. What better way to spend your Halloween than crossing town with delicious cider stops along the way?

Oh, and of course: there's a Costume Contest! When you visit any Tria in your Halloween finest, snap a photo and post it to Instagram. Tag it with #triaphilly and #trickortria and be sure to follow us @triaphilly (if you don't already...!) We'll review your tagged posts and select a winner, who will receive a fully stocked, Tria-approved gift basket of autumn wine, cheese and beer goodness. Our friendly staffs will all be in costume, too, so don't be shy! You can follow us in the days leading up to Trick or Tria @triaphilly for costume inspiration - and of course, all of the day's finery.

Join Ben Wenk of Ploughman Farm Cider from Adams County, PA at Tria Taproom! Taste through several of his ciders and pick his brain about the industry and orchard-based cider.

Ploughman farm ciders are as unique as the place in which they are created. For over a century, the Wenk family has tended the deep, fertile soils of our orchards in Adams County, PA – one of the finest fruit growing regions in the United States.

Each year at Three Springs Fruit Farm, we cultivate apple varieties specifically for our cidery. We work with American heirlooms like Spitzenburg, Golden Russet, and Stayman and select apples like Dabinett, Stoke Red, and Kingston Black for their bittersharp and bittersweet flavor profiles. Every year the apples we use for cider are a little different, which adds layers of complexity to the cider and connection to the farm.

In addition to ciders we also make perries, and other fruit wines from peaches, chokeberries, pears, and fine grapes. Here at Ploughman, we embrace the "frontier" mentality – an eagerness to try new things, but always with authenticity to quality. We are not purists, but we will never cut corners and never use engineered essences, flavors, or artificial nonsense. Our eagerness to experiment with new things is almost completely farm based – we use whatever is exceptional and abundant at Three Springs Fruit Farm on any given year.
