Peaks and Pints Monday Cider Flight: Grit City Ciderworks

Ron Swarner


Peaks-and-Pints-Cider-Flight-TacomaThis past July, Husband-wife team Kelsey and David Horne opened Grit City Ciderworks in Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood. David — who grew up in Washington’s Apple Capital Wenatchee and homebrewed for a decade — wanted to make cider to balance the sweet cider market. After studying at Oregon State University’s renown fermentation program, along with his beer brewing knowledge, he found his preferred cider taste profile. Stop by today for Peaks and Pints Monday Cider Flight: Grit City Ciderworks and take home local cider made with Eastern Washington apples and fresh fruit. Cheers!
