Presented by: Chris Hulton of Bold Rock Hard Cider

With over 15 years of experience working in the hard cider industry, Chris Hulton is bringing his expertise to Pour The Core: Philly to teach us about cider. Chris will cover the cider making process along with the various cider styles that exist and how the industry is doing as a whole.

2:00pm - State of Cider in PA
Presented by: Joe Getz, Vice President of the Pennsylvania Cider Guild and Owner/Cidermaker of Kurant Cider

Since the Pennsylvania Cider Guild's formation in 2014, it's members have worked hard to change legislation in the state that would allow consumers greater access to cider and cidermakers the opportunity to craft ciders in their natural form without having to add sugars, water, etc. This year, the guild worked tirelessly with elected state officials, supporters, and lobbyist to change legislation in the hard cider industry. Learn what changes were made and how they effect you, the consumer, during an informal "town hall" seminar with PA Cider Guild Board Member Joe Getz.
