“Pennsylvania’s craft beer, cider, and wine industries offer not only the appeal of the local flavors and fruit that go into them but an opportunity for an experience at a vineyard in the countryside, a cidery in an orchard or a craft brewery in any of our diverse towns and cities,” said Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding.
