  49. Philip Brazina on May 7, 2016 at 2:43 am

    I’ve tried many ciders, but PowerCore has an interesting logo, and I’m hoping they put that much effort into a good cider as they did the artwork.

  50. Celisa Counterman on May 7, 2016 at 7:22 am

  62. Kell Cleeland on May 9, 2016 at 8:32 pm

    Little round hop!! Big Hill Cider works sounds great. I used to live near Wenksville in Upper Adams and I think it’s the most beautiful area of central PA. Glad to hear they don’t back sweeten the ciders and let the apples and yeast do the work.

  63. Sara on May 10, 2016 at 7:26 pm

    Good Intent of course! I love their briefing about their process and how many drys they offer.
