Off- Dry Modern Hard Cider
Alexander Hays, aka "Fighting Elleck," was a Union Army General in the U.S. Civil War. Known by his men to be "brave as a lion," after having been seriously injured on multiple occasions and having two horses shot out from underneath him during the Gettysburg Campaign, he was killed in the Battle of the Wilderness in 1864. He is buried locally at Allegheny Cemetery. Fighting Elleck Hard Apple Cider is medium-bodied, well-balanced, smooth and refreshing with light effervescence.
Bone- Dry Modern Hard Cider
