Indian Ladder Farms Cidery & 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, crowlers, and 4-packs.
