Rotating Saturdays at the Local Libations Tent

 

Christmas City Spirits – 9/4, 10/23

Historically inspired products, developed by their team of dedicated alco-historians blend with their sense of community to bring history and place to the palates of their consumers. Alcohol played a major role in colonial America. You could even argue that massive taxes on the trade were a trigger for the American Revolution. The Moravians bought their distilling knowledge to Bethlehem in 1741 and the craft has had a presences throughout the entire region ever since. A group of Lehigh Valley friends bring back the authenticity and history of this tradition with products made with local sources.

Hardball Cider – 8/21, 9/18, 10/9, 10/16

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.
