Stan Wash

Stan Wash is a founding member and cidermaker for Overgrown Orchard, an orchard-based cidery making wild fermented, bubbly ciders in Gary, Indiana. Stan cut his teeth in cidermaking by (a) reading every cider book he could find, and (b) attending every CiderCon┬« class he could. The American Cider Association’s certification program was a logical step in this education-driven approach to cidermaking. Becoming a Certified Pommelier™ was a way of investing in the safety, quality, and innovation at Overgrown Orchard, and has played a vital role in the ongoing evolution of that company.
