Anything that can be pressed…..will be pressed!
We are excited to host our 3rd annual PRESSING PARTY. Join the Nine Pin crew as we once again press over 100 varieties of Samascott Orchards, Lindsey’s Idyllwood Orchard, and wild foraged apples LIVE into one “MONSTER” cider blend and celebrate all things pressed. This year’s party will also feature the release of the 2015 batch of The Cider Monster! 2014 Cider Monster bottles will be available as well!
Nine Pin’s PRESSING PARTY will include local vendors providing panini presses from Sweet Mama Mia, french pressed coffee, grilled cheese presses from Mad Cheezy, body presses through massages from Albany Massage, letter pressing Nine Pin coasters, T-Shirt pressing from Troy Cloth & Paper, an apple jug bench press competition sponsored by North Albany’s CrossFit Beyond, aeropressed coffee from Stacks Espresso Bar, and more! Winner of the bench press competition (both men and women) will receive a Nine Pin gift basket and a 1 month free membership to Cross Fit Beyond.
The Albany Distilling Company will be in attendance sampling The Warehouse Rye. This collaborative spirit was aged in one legendary barrel, which has held Ironweed Rye, Nine Pin Cider, Tenth Pin Brandy and then Ironweed Rye again because, why not. This will be for sale!
Also, live music from The Sacandaga String Band and The Other Brotherswith 102.7 WEQX – The REAL Alternative doing a LIVE broadcast from 12-2pm.

General Admission tickets in advance are 10$ and at the door are 15$. Cider Monster Special tickets are 25$ and are only available in advance. DD tickets are 5$.
All General Admission and Cider Monster Special tickets include a complimentary glass of cider. Apple Jug Bench Press competition entry is $5.00 at the party and local vendor goods will all be available for purchase at the event.
This year, the party will take place in the back with the Seven Dwarves (our 7 new 200 barrel stainless steel tanks) so the tasting room will remain open to the general public. Access to the the party is through the tasting room and tote maze into the back!
Looking forward to another awesome party!
