Potter's Craft Cider Creates "The Haven" Cider Blend to Benefit Our Shelter!
Potter’s Craft Cider has teamed up with The Haven to create an original cider blend called “The Haven.” Inspired by the Trappist Abbey tradition, Potter’s crafted this Belgian style cider to raise awareness about The Haven’s mission, and portions of the proceeds will be donated to The Haven’s day shelter. Flavored with figs and coriander, The Haven blend will be available for purchase at Potter’s retail events and in select retailers across the Commonwealth and in Washington D.C. beginning in May 2016.
“We are enthusiastic supporters of The Haven and their mission to provide vital services for the folks in our community who need it most,” says Tim Edmond, co-founder of Potter’s Craft Cider. “The Haven is perhaps the most unique cider that we’ve ever made, and we hope that it serves to shine light on the outstanding work that The Haven does on a daily basis, treating our homeless population with dignity and providing the essential tools that they need.”
“We were thrilled when the folks from Potter’s approached us with the idea of a Haven cider blend to benefit the day shelter. They have been wonderful community partners through the years, but this is something entirely new,” says Haven Director, Stephen Hitchcock. “We look forward to building more awareness around homelessness through this creative venture. Great cider for a great cause!”
Potter’s and The Haven invite the community to our upcoming cider release party on Saturday, May 21st from 11 AM - 5 PM at the IX Park. This event is free and open to the public and will take place rain or shine! Attendees can taste and purchase the new cider while enjoying food trucks (Beanfully and Cote-Rotie) and live music by Tequila Mockingbird from 1-3 PM.
Potter’s Craft Cider is a farmhouse cidery in Free Union, Virginia which uses local apples to make unique and distinctive ciders. For more information visit their website or follow them on Facebook.
