Germantown Pastry Chef Hopes to Bring Life Back to Historic Cider Barrel
Brandi Edinger is a Germantown resident and executive pastry chef who is hoping to breath new life back into an historic Germantown icon, the historic Cider Barrel. But she needs your help.
Shuttered since 2003, the iconic Cider Barrel was part of what made Germantown special for almost 80 years. Now Edinger wants to repurpose the historic building into a bakery that would sell fresh pastries, including croissants and cinnamon rolls, and of course, cider, as well as, other seasonal items.
To bring the Cider Barrel back to life, Edinger is going to need support from the community. She has started a Kickstarter campaign to raise $85,000 by October 8. This is an all or nothing campaign, if the full amount is not raised by the October 8 deadline, all pledged donations will become void and be returned.
