Grab your greenest swag and head over to Hardball Cider on Sat, March 14th! Our friends at Hillside Smokehouse will be making plenty of classic Irish dishes (menu to be posted soon.)
Traditional live Irish music from Reserve Pipers from 2-5, then we keep it rollin' with a mix of your favorite Irish rock and traditional tunes during our jigs and keg toss for the lads and lassies. Then, from 7-10, local trio Doyle and the Dudes crank it up with rock and a few Irish covers by bands like Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly. Local native Brian McNulty will be here with his bagpipe from 2-3 and 6-7 so stop and say hi while he plays around the farm.
We will have pot o' luck for the kids and Irish coffees for the rest, along with our usual hard ciders, beers, wine, a local PA "Guiness" style stout, and games to enjoy the coming of Spring. Plenty of ways to show your Irish pride (even if you aren't,) at Hardball Cider. Bring the pups along too!
Fri: 6-11 pm
Sat: 2-11 pm

Q: Do you serve food at your tasting room?
A: We have a very small rotating monthly menu that's posted on the website, food trucks at our Saturday events. Guests are always welcome to bring their own food when truck is here. Check facebook and Instagram for updates on upcoming events as they're posted.
Q: Is there cider and wine available to take home?
A: There sure is. The tasting room will have 4packs of year-round favorites to take out, along with 32oz growler jugs of anything on tap to fill up and take home. You can also bring your own clean 32oz and 64oz growlers to fill, regardless what logo is on them. These, along with bottles of wine are for take out and can't be consumed on the premises.
Q: Can we bring our dog?
A: We do love dogs at Hardball, but well-behaved dogs are only permitted in the outside area. Out of respect to our neighbors and other patrons, PLEASE clean after your pup, keep them on a leash at all times, and watch for posted signs. Thank you!
Q: Are we allowed to bring games of our own?
A: Absolutely! We welcome any kind of game you'd like to bring along, although the taproom is stocked with plenty. Those, along with cornhole, horseshoes, and kanjam. We only ask that you don't blast your own music here.
Q: Can we take a tour while we're there or plan a private event?
A: Right now we only have walk-in sessions with the owner on Sundays while he works in the cidery from 1-3pm. Limit is 10 people per tour. Otherwise, information regarding cidery tours during events will be posted on facebook and Instagram. Private event opportunities will start Spring 2020.
Q: Where should we park?
A: You may park on the left and right sides of the lane. Please stay behind orange cones and be mindful as you park as to not block the road with any part of your vehicle. Thank you!
