Alpenfire Cider is pleased to announce its partnership with the Peninsula Trails Coalition to create a very special cider benefitting the Olympic Discovery Trail (ODT). A percentage of each cider bag sold will go to assist in expanding the trail as well as trail care and maintenance.
The Discovery Trail Cider is a traditional style, still cider – dry and delicious. Alpenfire’s organic bittersweet cider fruit and Olympic Peninsula grown organic heirloom apples are blended together to produce light tannins and refreshing acidity. The cider is presented in a 1.5 liter recyclable bag that is also BPA Free. It is lighter and has an 80% lower carbon footprint compared to conventional glass bottles. Perfect for a trek on the trail! The cider is currently available in Port Townsend at the Co-op, Getables, and our tasting room when it opens again in March. Look for it in the greater Puget Sound area soon.
This cider is being used to raise funds for the Peninsula Trails Coalition’s goal of completing the ODT. The trail will eventually extend approx. 130 miles, connecting Port Townsend at its eastern end to the Pacific coast on the western end. It is available to walkers, hikers, bicyclists, and in many sections, equestrians. The vision of the ODT was formed over 30 years ago and the actual trail is now about 65% complete, with several beautiful stretches just recently opened. More information on the Peninsula Trails Coalition and the ODT can be found on www.olympicdiscoverytrail.org.
