Valley Craft Network 2013 Holiday Studio Tour
DLC will be participating in this weekend’s Valley Craft Network 2013 Holiday Studio Tour. The Valley Craft Network is an association of professional artists and crafters living and working in the Middletown and Pleasant Valleys of Western Maryland. The public is invited to visit each studio and enjoy a wide variety handcrafted wares including pottery, paintings, jewelry, wood products, textiles and fiber art and accessories. This free self-guided tour is scheduled every year the weekend before Thanksgiving (November 23 and 24). This year marks their thirtieth anniversary!

Plenty of apples available for Thanksgiving pies!
Although we have no more apples for pick-your-own this year, we still have a ton of apples available in our store! Stop by before Thanksgiving for the perfect pie apples.
Flying Dog Partnership
We are very excited to be working with Flying Dog Brewery this fall on their Brewhouse Rarities Orchard Ale! Our juice will be used in the production of this limited release beer throughout this season.
Frederick Farm-to-Fork Event
Distillery Lane Ciderworks is very excited to have participated in Frederick County’s first “Farm-to-Fork” event. This 10-day long event paired different restaurants in Frederick with local farms and wineries. Our cider (as well as vegetables, meats, and cheeses from local farms) was served at various Frederick restaurants from August 23rd until September 2nd. Four restaurants- La Paz, The Red Horse, Brewer’s Alley, and Ayse Meze- have decided to carry our cider regularly!
Snail of Approval
Distillery Lane Ciderworks is proud to receive the 2013 Snail of Approval award from Slow Food DC! This is our 2nd year in a row winning this award. You can check out the other winners by following this link: http://bit.ly/Snail12
The Snail of Approval is Slow Food DC’s way of recognizing the food-related providers that are making significant contributions to the transformation of our food system to one that is good, clean and fair. In order to help guide DC patrons and visitors to food that is good, clean and fair, Slow Food DC will award the Snail of Approval to those artisans and eateries who contribute to the quality, authenticity and sustainability of the food we eat and the beverages we drink in the City of Washington, DC and surrounding areas.
Nominations are examined by: the degree to which the establishment’s activities are congruent with the Slow Food DC mission in promoting and celebrating local, seasonal, and sustainable food sources; how much it is working to preserve the culinary traditions of the region’s ethnically and culturally diverse populations; and how it is supporting the right of all people to enjoy good, clean, fair food.
