Arsenal Cider Cidergarden Pre-Grand Opening Meetup

This Meetup is past

25 people went


Join us for a fun evening helping Bill & Michelle, owners of Arsenal Cider (, test out their new cider garden. That right, CIDER. I know this is the Pittsburgh BEER meetup but we thought it might be fun to check out a non-beer place, this may happen again sometime. It's good to try new things! And you can bring those gluten free folks out to try all of these as well. For those of you that think you don't like cider, you might want to wait till you've tried theirs. They have a wide variety of styles that might surprise you.

For those of you that have been here and do like it already, there is something new. A Cidergarden! It's a awesome outdoor space that they just finished and we get to help them try it out before the "Grand Opening" on the 30th.

In addition to all the fun of hanging out in the garden, we may be able to get a few interested folks into the backroom for a tour (this is dependent on the construction progress).

***You can bring your own food to enjoy with the amazing cider that they make.

***Just a point of information about this meetup, in case your are not aware. Due to the laws in Pennsylvania, Arsenal is not permitted to sell their products by the glass at the Cider House. Therefore you will have to purchase a bottle (~32 oz flip top growler), which runs between $15 -$25 depending on which one you get. A bottle can easily be shared with other people if you want to chip in with a few others. They will also give a few small samples before purchase so you can select one you like. Of course you can also take home any leftovers that you may have.

***Due to space constraints, we have to limit this one to 40 people so please be considerate to the other members and only sign up if you know you can be there. If something does come up please change your RSVP with as much notice as possible so someone on the wait-list can take your spot.

***Due to agreements with the City of Pittsburgh, all patrons must be off of the property by 8:00pm. That's why we are starting this one so early.
