This Weekend: Hard Cider Festival at the Navy Yard
Now that it’s officially fall and everyone is being blasted with pumpkin in beer, cheesecake, lattes and anything else that is drinkable or edible, take a moment this weekend to remember the original fall food: the apple.
This Saturday at the Navy Yard will be the 2nd annual Pour the Core Festival, the hard cider festival of Philly’s fall. The Festival runs from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.–hours filled with locally-produced and internationally-sourced ciders, more than 75 in total. The event will feature local favorites like the artfully crafted Frecon’s Cidery Crabby Granny, best-selling US brands like event sponsor Woodchuck Hard Cider, and a variety of imported ciders from Spain, England and elsewhere.
The event will also feature Philadelphia food trucks, seminars on the making of cider, and live music by musician Kyle Herring.
