From the beginnings of the Deen family’s heritage in farming to a present-day cidery, winery, and tasting room, they have a story for the ages. More recent history is Hardball owner, Geoff Deen, making his first batch of hard cider in Nov 2013. For years, his father had pressed apples on Elvern Farms to make cider, but while on a train ride to work, Geoff had an epiphany- bring together his family’s tradition of farm-fresh pressed cider and his love for baseball, and Hardball Cider was born.
As classic as our favorite sport, with an innovative spin on the word craft, Hardball Cider, wine, and orchard is dedicated to tradition and quality. We press apples on our 5th generation-owned family farm only 30 minutes from Easton. With flavors like tart and dry apple, white peach, black cherry, blueberry, watermelon, pineapple coconut, cinnamon spiced, and more, Hardball Cider will make you a fan of cider, regardless of your taste preferences.

Weyerbacher Brewing Company
Weyerbacher Brewing was founded in 1995 in a livery stable located in downtown Easton. Eventually outgrowing that small space, we made the move to the 30,000 square foot facility that we still call home today.
Since the beginning, we have established a reputation for making big, full-flavored, high quality brews. While predominantly known for Belgian-style brews including Merry Monks and QUAD, we have an extensive barrel aging program which produces fan favorites including Insanity and Riserva. In recent years, we’ve dipped our toes into IPAs and other lower ABV styles with great success. Experimenting with different ingredients and brewing techniques, our brewers continue to stretch their creative minds and develop interesting and mind blowing beers that will satisfy your taste for the extraordinary.

A group of Lehigh Valley friends bring back the authenticity and history of this tradition with products made with local sources.
