Kurant Cider co-owner and head cidermaker, Joe Getz’s business is expanding, just after one year into producing cider commercially in the eastern region of Pennsylvania outside of Philadelphia. Besides making cider at Kurant, Joe is also the Vice President of the Pennsylvania Cider Guild, the commonwealth’s organizing body for cider producers and apple growers in PA.
In this chat, Joe and I discuss his ciders and why he calls them untypical American style ciders. We also look at the upward movement of cider in one of the largest state in the Union.
Kurant has moved around a bit finding a home from one brewery to another. A new move to Perkasie, Pennsylvania into Free-Will Brewing Company is the newest location.
In 2016, Kurant is looking to ferment 1500-2000 gallons of cider. They source local juice and are able to make cider year-round. Find their cider on draft.
