FLC alumnus Sam Perry picking an apple

That's hawksome

Crabapple trees over 100 years old span the orchards of Old Fort Lewis, where Fenceline Cider harvested fruit for their limited edition "Old Fort Cider"—available in Fenceline's Cider Club, at Fenceline's taproom in Mancos, and at 11th Street Station in Durango.
"The old-growth apples from Old Fort Lewis in Hesperus produce a complex, bitter, sharp blend with a long finish and notes of lemon zest, pineapple, and nectarine," says Sam Perry (Art, ’05), Fenceline co-founder and FLC alumnus. "It's been a crowd favorite among those in our new Cider Club and we're thrilled to continue to partner with Fort Lewis on the effort."
