The Kimlin Cider Mill in Poughkeepsie is having an old fashioned tasting this Saturday and it's the only time of year when you can taste their special cider.

The historic Kimlin Cider Mill is located on Cedar Avenue in Poughkeepsie.  When I say on Cedar Ave. - the building sits right on the edge of the road.  It's a very cool place which is only open for special events, like the one happening this weekend. I shot this video a few months ago and it gives you some of the back history of the mill.


Saturday is the 5th annual "Old Fashioned Cider Tasting" from 11 am to 3 pm. All proceeds go to the restoration of the mill. There will be hard and sweet ciders, plus food and live music. You will also be able to tour the mill, which is usually reserved for school field trips and exclusive events.

Also available on Saturday will the rare opportunity to taste Kimlin's own cider. This is their small-batch cider that they make just for this tasting. You will not be able to buy this anywhere, so don't miss out.

The Old Fashioned Cider Tasting will be a great time for the entire family. It's free to get in and for just $10, you can sample hard and sweet ciders from an number of the best cider makers. The first  250 people also get a tasting glass as a souvenir. Kimlin Cider Mill is at 140 Cedar Avenue in Poughkeepsie.  Check em out on Facebook for more info.
