Beautiful day for deliveries in #chinatown #sf
3,000 lbs into the van last night, dang SF you thirsty!
#tbt to our first round of cider-specific grafts going into a 30 year old block of Royal Gala host trees back in March of 2014. Lucky to have several hundred gallons of this wild funky stuff aging quietly in the cellar from this year's harvest.

We get asked a lot what our favorite apple is. This changes all the time for us but #GoldRush would be near the top of the list most of the time. Looks like a Golden Delicious but tastes about 100x better. Tons of acid and sugar, presses out huge volumes of juice and that juice smells like cinnamon, what's not to like? Oh yeah, it also produces reliably, grows well in our region and is naturally resistant to all kinds of typical apple tree troubles.
First time running 750ml bottles on the automated line, knocking out 180 cases before lunch is pretty alright! #pickcider #ilovetechnologybutnotasmuchasyouyousee
Our cidery is based inside of the @riggersloftwineco collective; perched out on the end of a massive finger pier in the historic Kaiser shipyards in #RichmondCA, this place was once home to the largest shipbuilding efforts of WW2.
Pumping liquid apples on a Saturday morning, another 1200 gallons of 🦀🍎 juice beginning it's journey to becoming cider. This one should finish up around 9.5% abv 😲
Pumping in the last batch of 2018. Bunch of GoldRush and Pink Lady, if we're lucky this might be ready by Easter 🤞 #pickcider #slowcider
Some of our presents don't fit under the tree #thegreatwallofcider

Pomme Gris juice ready for fermentation. Super sweet, slightly tannic and almost red? #ciderapples #pickcider
Racking and stacking real late last night, nearing the end of the cider from 2017's harvest, excited to start tasting what the 2018 crop will bring. Big thanks to the cellar crew for hanging tough! #pickcider #orchardcider #branchtobottle #treetotongue #hashtag
More good stuff from the cider block, these are Pomme Gris apples, they taste a bit like a pear, hope
they don't press like one!
Golden Russets from the new grafts clocking in at 21 brix aka 11% abv #whoa

Pretty reasonable sunset on Saturday! #richmondCA
Pretty interesting stuff happening in this Virginia Crab ferment, accidental keeve? Weird yeast convection layer? I have no idea.
