HoPS 5rd Annual Cider Press

Saturday 11-October-2014 was the HoPS Annual Cider Press. This event is hosted annually by Garry & Traci Lienhard at Winter Creek Farm in Castle Rock. The apple chosen this year was a past favorite, Honey Crisp. Through the help of WAHA, there were 70+ homebrewers from all over the state that helped cut, chop, and press over 8500 pounds of apples. The group started a little before 9a Saturday morning and the last apple was pressed just seven short hours later. We had a yield of about 550 gallons.

This family friendly event keeps growing every year. The kids enjoyed seeing the farm animals, playing on the hay pile, and getting tractor rides. Each year the event makes new cider lovers of all generations.
