After Hours at Minnetrista: The OutCiders

After Hours at Minnetrista: The OutCiders

We have a long, proud tradition of pressing cider at Minnetrista and Muncie has a deep love of craft beer–what could be better than combining these two passions for our Outciders event? Come together for an evening in the beautiful Nature Area before winter descends and the cold weather keeps us indoors. With hard cider, hot dogs, s’mores and a bonfire, it’s bound to be a great time!

In partnership with Heorot. A 21-and-older event.
