4 Jack’s Hard Cider Events You Can’t Miss in Late Winter, Spring and Summer 2016

Even though we are still in the heart of winter, it is never too early to start dreaming of warmer days ahead. We’ve been hard at work planning some fun and tasty events at our cidery located in Biglerville, Pennsylvania, in the coming months. Get out those calendars and grab a peek at the schedule below:

Tour de Tank Along the Mason-Dixon Wine Trail, Weekends in March, 12–5 p.m.

On Saturdays and Sundays in March, participate in the Mason-Dixon Wine Trail’s Tour de Tanks. Visit Hauser Estate Winery, home to Jack’s Hard Cider, and get a taste of fresh cider and wine right out of our tanks. Tickets for Tour de Tanks are $25 each and include the tasting, an official souvenir wine glass, a 10% discount on wine and spirit sales, an educational experience, light refreshments and more!

The Hard Cider Run, Saturday, April 16, 9 a.m.

The Hard Cider Run is back by popular demand! Dash down vineyard rows, tackle the rolling hills and see firsthand where our hand-crafted Jack’s Hard Cider is made—all while running a 5K! Each participant will receive a 2016 finisher’s medal, a glass of hard cider (soda will be available) at the finish, a commemorative glass to keep and an awesome t-shirt!

New for the 2016 run is The Hungry Apple option. Enjoy a scrumptious donut at each mile marker—if you eat all three, you’ll receive a second, exclusive The Hungry Apple medal when you cross the finish line. Yum!

We’ll be hosting packet pick-up on Friday, April 15, at the cidery, too, with half-off all ciders from 5–7 p.m. for runners as well as live music.
