Sip Cider and See the Distilling Process in Action at Colvin Run Mill

Cider PressHow is a still related to a mill?

Learn about the distilling process, how ciders are made, and why these activities are mill-related at the “Stills and Cider” event at Colvin Run Mill on Saturday, Sept. 26, 2020.

Watch the cider press in action and see how a still operates. This is a family-friendly event, so no alcohol will be involved. This will be a water-only operation, and visitors of all ages can enjoy samples of the non-alcoholic apple cider. While you are there, you can also listen to live music sponsored by the Friends of Colvin Run Mill.

This event is designed for participants age 3 to adult and runs from noon to 2 p.m. The cost is $10 per person.
