Uncle John’s Invites You to Party to the ‘Core’
Cider mill celebrating new hard cider ‘Core Four’ look with Sept. 6 launch event
ST. JOHNS, Mich. – The latest fall fashions will be celebrated next month at Uncle John’s Cider Mill.
The cider mill at 8614 U.S. 127 in St. Johns is kicking off the fall season in style by hosting a launch party from 5-8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6, for the new packaging and rebranding of its “Core Four” hard apple cider flavors. Available in four-packs at stores across the Midwest, Uncle John’s Apple, Apple Cherry, Apple Blueberry and Apple Pear hard cider varieties have become fan favorites and served as the cornerstone for the numerous awards and accolades Uncle John’s has received for its products over the years. The new packaging gives the Core Four the distinctive, dignified and well-earned respect they deserve, and true fans of hard cider recognize.
The Sept. 6 launch party will include cider specials, music from a live DJ, food trucks and plenty of activities such as pickleball and yard games in addition to the wealth of other family-friendly offerings adults and kids have to come to expect on a visit to Uncle John’s.
For more than 40 years, the family-owned-and-operated Uncle John’s Cider Mill has been a destination for area residents and travelers by providing a host of wholesome activities and family-friendly fun. In 1918, the family built the barn known as the Fruit House as a place to store and package fresh fruit for the wholesale market. The Fruit House was later used as a packaging facility, retail outlet and workshop before being converted into the home of Uncle John’s Fruit House Winery & Uncle John’s Hard Cider in 2003.
Uncle’s John’s offers a wide range of seasonal release hard ciders throughout the year in addition to the everyday ciders and premium blends that are served up year-round and are available to sample in the tasting room from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week from May to December.
Never mind what the calendar says. Fall officially starts at Uncle John’s Cider Mill on Sept. 6. Come out, celebrate and party to the Core.
About Uncle John’s Cider Mill
Founders John and Carolyn Beck purchased the “family farm” from John’s parents in the early 1970s. Originally run as a wholesale fruit and vegetable farm, the young Becks found it hard to make ends meet. Their idea was to make apple cider and doughnuts to keep the farm in operation. The young entrepreneurs pressed on – and through hard work and faith, the business took off. Today, Uncle John’s Cider Mill offers fun for the entire family with cider and doughnuts, apple picking, a pumpkin patch, corn maze, children’s activities, a gift shop, a cidery and winery tasting room, and much more. Uncle John’s is the place where families can start a new tradition. For more information, visit ujcidermill.com.
