Shacksbury Cider Happy Hour at American Sardine Bar
4:00 – 8:00pm
Join us for the first ever Philly Cider Week as we welcome Shacksbury Ciders from Vergennes, VT for a late October Tuesday evening happy hour. Using heirloom apples from various New England estates, native yeast from the skins of foraged apples, & applying natural wine making techniques to cider production- Shacksbury has been producing some of the most complex, refreshing and drinkable ciders the US has to offer.
Let’s talk ciders! We’ll be pouring pints of Shacksbury Arlo on draft (blend of apples from Sunrise Orchards in Vermont and Basque bittersweet apples), bottle pours of Lost & Found (wild apples, bottle conditoned, native yeast), and debuting cans of Deer Snacks Volume II featuring artwork by Will Bryant. The 2017 version of Deer Snacks was one of our favorite ciders of the year- we can’t wait to try the 2018 iteration! We’re also featuring a collaboration between Shacksbury and La Garagista (winery from Bethel, VT) – a cider made with over 100 lbs of macerated La Crescent grape skins, aged for two months- then aged another 4 months in stainless. Only 50 kegs of this delightful cider were produced.
Be on the lookout for a specialty cocktail featuring Shacksbury Rosé Cider (aged on local Marquette grape skins), and you won’t leave hungry- Chef Doreen DeMarco will be presenting a series of small cider-centric snacks to accompany these fine Vermont state fermentations.
