Pair your cider with fabulous fries on National French Fry Day, July 13. Cider goes excellently with food, which is why we're offering up well-seasoned fries to pair with pints at our French Fry "Saleur," which roughly translates to someone who salts your food, like Salt Bae. Take your pairing outside to enjoy our next installment of Picnics on the Farm.
