Grand Opening Celebration and Open House
Albany, NY, 12207
You’re invited to attend the ribbon cutting and open house of Nine Pin Cider Works on Friday, Feb. 28th at 3 p.m. at 929 Broadway in Albany.
Nine Pin will be the first licensed cidery in New York State under the state’s new Farm Cideries Law, signed by Governor Cuomo during Cider Week NY in October 2013.
Nine Pin Cider Works delivers crisp refreshing taste to the heart of Albany. Using farm fresh fruit, including apples grown from seed on the del Peral family farm, Alejandro del Peral crafts delicious Nine Pin New York hard cider at 929 Broadway in the shadow of The Rose.
Nine Pin Cider was many years in the making. In 1997, Alejandro’s father is hired to paint a 32 foot rose on the brick wall side of 925 Broadway. He raises his family on a small Hudson Valley farm, encouraging a love of nature, adventure and fresh food. In 2010, Alejandro wanders into a store and is asked to sample a local hard cider. He quickly develops a passion for the drink and became an apprentice. By 2013, Alejandro has perfected his own cider blend, winning a gold medal at the Great Lakes International Cider & Perry Competition. His winning, noncommercial cider is called Catskill Thunder.
