Philadelphia has its fair share of breweries and micro-breweries, however, what are those who aren't into the typical IPA or Belgian to do? That's where the new owners of Hale & True, Risa & Kerry McKenzie have focused their efforts - those who aren't into beer or looking for something a little different. We checked in with the McKenzie's to get some detail on Hale & True, tucked between Society Hill & Hawthorne on South 7th Street, to learn more about the process of making cider, how they got into the business, what we can expect when we visit Hale & True...and of course, when they're opening their doors!
