The Kickstarter is now live and can be found here.
For about a year now, the crew behind Sir Charles Hard Cider has been hard at work trying to open Original 13 Ciderworks in Olde Kensington. Like the story goes with most producers of any alcoholic beverage, they’ve hit more than their fare share of snags along the way and the project has been continuously delayed.
In hopes of not delaying it anymore, they are launching a Kickstarter campaign to help raise the remaining capital they lost due to the delay and finish the project. To help create some excitement for the campaign, they are kicking it off with a party. The party, which takes place tonight, June 16th, will also serve as a preview of the new cidery. From 6:00pm till midnight, the crew will be giving guided tours of the under-construction facility and serving up food, cider, wine, beer and spirits. As the space isn’t yet far enough along to legally produce cider, they unfortunately will not be able to serve any of their own product. The event will still serve as a great opportunity to see what’s to come though and get to know the people behind the cidery.
Hopefully in the end, you enjoy the experience and want to help make Original 13 a reality by contributing to their campaign and getting some branded cider swag and experiences in return.
