Nine Years of Nine Pin

We are celebrating our ninth anniversary!

Nine years ago, we became New York’s first farm cidery and opened our tasting room to the public. Prior to that, New York law did not permit hard cider companies to sell directly to consumers in tasting rooms or attend farmers markets. During the past nine years, we’ve worked hard to help further change the law so cideries are permitted to cross-promote New York farm-based beer, spirits, and wine in their tasting rooms and sell related merchandise. New York State has also increased the production limit for New York farm cideries to 250,000 gallons from the original 150,000 gallon limit. To work with these changes, we’ve expanded our facilities from just 5,000 sq ft to 24,000 sq ft!

“We couldn’t be more proud of how far we’ve come in the last nine years,” said Alejandro del Peral, co-founder and cidermaker. “Thanks to our amazing customers and our dedicated staff, we’ve been able to grow our business and further Nine Pin’s mission of supporting New York agriculture and producing quality craft ciders using 100% New York apples and fruit. We’re looking forward to the next nine years!”

Join us for our ninth anniversary festivities on March 1 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. at our tasting room, located in the Albany Warehouse District. There will be baked goods, drink specials, and more to commemorate nine years of Nine Pin!
