Better on Draft 181 - Phillips Orchards and Cider Mill

Nick and Rob needed a break so we brought Ed in here to chat with Brian and Eric from Phillips Orchards. Eric is a former brewer at Ozones and Brian's family has owned the orchards for over 160 years! We discuss the want to get into the hard cider game, the competition, and how they have been doing since they opened in March. Eric talks about bringing his brand of beer making into cider making and they discuss the future of what you can (and can't do) with a winemakers license.
