Steelhead Cider Podcast

In our first Explore Washington State Podcast we interview Ben Barnes – owner/operator of Steelhead Cider in Chelan, WA. Ben explains how he got his start in the cider business, his family history with apples in Central Washington, and how a trip to France in May of 2017 gave him inspiration for a new way of making traditional hard ciders.

Steelhead Cider in ChelanBen’s cider story started when he was at WSU and it made us chuckle at his ingenuity for starting to make ciders.  Today Steelhead Cider has five ciders available at their tap room in Chelan, WA. To find out more about Steelhead Cider visit their website here.

After you listen to our conversation with Ben we encourage you to drive over and visit him and taste all of his ciders. Steelhead Ciders are amazing!
