Cider: Pennsylvania's Once (and Future?) Favorite Talk and Tasting


Touching on everything from William Penn to Prohibition, this overview looks at how cider was historically made, its presence and importance in Pennsylvania, and where it’s heading today.

Join us from 5:00-7:00 pm at the Bachmann Publick House (2nd and Northampton Streets) for an evening of history and tastings. We will be offering samples of Blackledge Winery’s historic ciders to complement Mark Turdo’s talk.

By day, Mark A. Turdo is a museum curator at the newly-opened Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia, but at night (and on weekends) he researches and writes about cider history and recreates historic ciders.
