Indian Ladder Farmstead Cidery and Brewery (ILFCB) is operated by Dietrich Gehring and his partner Stuart Morris. ILFCB is located on Indian Ladder Farms, a popular apple orchard and farm market located in Altamont, New York. ILFCB produces hard cider and beer using crops such as apples, pears, berries and pumpkins as well as hops and malting barley grown on Indian Ladder and other local farms.  ILFCB’s on-farm tasting room is open to the public for beer and hard cider by the glass as well as growler-fills. 

ILFCB is turning 1! Join us in celebrating on May 6th!

Come celebrate our first year in operation as a cidery and brewery, and kick off the 21st annual Baby Animal Days!

It's a party in the biergarten with music by Chris Dukes Band and The College Farm and a pig roast by Crosby Farms. We're also celebrating the can release of the second beer in our Hop Master series, Dr. Paul Matthews IPA.

Kim from EQX will be on site broadcasting live from the baby animal barn from noon-2pm. Bring the family to see, pet & learn about chicks, turkey poults, ducklings, goslings, bunnies, goat kids, lambs, piglets and calves! Baby Animal Days goes from May 5th – 21st, from 9am-6pm daily. Admission is $6 per child (adults accompanying them are free)
