Have you ever been interested in brewing your own hard cider? It’s not as difficult as you might think!
This week through Saturday, November 27th, you can purchase supplies and access an exclusive recording from the experts at The North Brewery! This recording contains instructional footage from our live streamed How-to-Brew: Hard Cider event last year. This year, we are partnering with The Cider Mill to help you brew the best-tasting batch of cider you can possibly make! Additionally, STYP members will receive exclusive discounts on cider and brewing supplies upon registration! There’s a cider only discounted option for those who already have brewing kits. To order multiples of any items, an option to increase quantity will be available at checkout.
Once you purchase a brewing kit, it can be used indefinitely for future recipes– from hard cider to beer to even wine (psst… this might come in handy for an upcoming STYP event; stay tuned!)! Batches brewed before the end of the month will be ready just in time for the December/January holiday season!
Interested? To join, you must register in advance through our form below (and linked here). A link to the recording will be sent to your email after payment and registration has been confirmed. The deadline to purchase is Saturday, November 27th at noon. Additionally, any cider purchased from the Cider Mill must be picked up by Sunday, November 28th. Please wait for a confirmation email before you pick up your cider.
While this event is open to everyone, STYP members receive extra deals upon registration– paying 33% less than non-members! Unsure if you’re a member? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out. Not a member yet? Join today and receive discounts on this and future events!

Today we are recognizing and celebrating Juneteenth!
What is Juneteenth?
Juneteenth is a national holiday celebrating the liberation of Black Americans from slavery, when news of the Emancipation Proclamation made its way to the furtherest corners of the confederacy. While the Emancipation Proclamation was instituted in 1863, it was two and a half years later on June 19th, 1865, that all confederate states seceded to the Union and adopted the proclamation, thereby bringing an end to slavery in the United States.
Despite its importance in American History, Juneteenth did not become a federally recognized holiday until 2021 after the rise of social justice movements. Today, it is used to celebrate Black Americans and learn more about American History.
Ways you can celebrate Juneteenth:
