Pearl Street Brewery and Hoch Orchards Partner for production in Wisconsin
Pearl Street Brewery has partnered with Hoch Orchard Hard Cider out of Nodine, MN to produce and sell their ciders in Wisconsin. Pearl Street Brewery will produce and package Hoch Orchards Ciders through their company Turisimo Fermentations, LLC.
Pearl Street Brewery has worked with Hoch Orchard & Gardens for many years utilizing its organic fruits in versions of Pearl Street Brewery Beer and products. The idea to collaborate was an easy decision for both the Brewery and Orchard. Pearl Street Brewmaster Joe Katchever stated “We take pride in utilizing locally sourced products from Wisconsin and Minnesota Farmers, and we like to set an example of how an entity can invest in locally produced products made directly in our own backyard.”
Jackie Hoch of Hoch Orchard & Gardens, stated “Our relationship has been growing since the start of the Pearl Street Brewery and it has only strengthened with our combined passion of the La Crosse area and the Driftless region. This collaboration made sense to further that relationship”.
The Hoch Orchard Hard Cider are available in 12 oz bottles and offer a wide range of seasonal ciders starting with Wet Hopped Summer Cider and Cidre Nouveau released in November, Winter Spruce tip, Spring Bulmers Irish and multiple fruit blends, including: strawberries, rhubarb, raspberry, apricot, plum, tart cherry and others. 100% of the fruits used are grown organically on Hoch’s farm.
