Nine Pin Cider Works, New York’s first farm cidery, will announce the completion of their $500,000-plus expansion project on Thursday, Oct. 5. The project, which was made possible through funding by Empire State Development via the Capital Region Regional Economic Development Council, included the installation and fit-up of seven 6,000-gallon fermentation tanks – the largest in the Capital Region – and a full-scale renovation and expansion of the cidery’s tasting room.
Alejandro del Peral, co-founder and cider maker at Nine Pin Cider Works, will be joined by the Deputy Commissioner of Agriculture and Markets Phil Gilter, Senator Neil D. Breslin (D-44), Assemblymember Patricia A. Fahy (D-109), Assemblymember John T. McDonald III (D-108) and Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy for a 3 p.m. press conference, followed by a “cider and sliders” celebration at the cidery, located at 929 Broadway in Albany.
Nine Pin, which opened in February of 2014, is now served in more than 1,000 bars, restaurants, and retail locations in New York and Massachusetts. It was recently named as one of the launch products for a new partnership between Taste NY and Amtrak.
