Hale & True wants to make better cider standard.
Our cider is made by fermenting fresh Pennsylvania apple juice, straight from the orchard and into our tanks. We then add ingredients like hops or fresh fruit juice to create a sessionable, balanced but complex drink.
We founded Hale & True in September, 2015, but the planning started years before that. In 2013, we made our first batch of cider in our tiny Old City apartment. It was naturally dry, fizzy, and delicious. After that, we were sold on cider.
Right away, we started sharing with friends and family, and the cider love kept growing from there. Now, we plan on opening a cidery and tasting room in our home city of Philadelphia in early 2018, where we’ll serve our cider, as well as other local cider, beer, wine, and spirits.
