Amy Hartranft is spreading the gospel of hard cider through Philly Cider Week.

What's happening: The annual event kicked off Tuesday and runs through Sunday.

  • Bars and restaurants throughout the city are hosting programming highlighting Pennsylvania cideries.

What she's saying: Hartranft, the director of the annual event, told Mike she started Cider Week after discovering a lack of hard cider options in the city.

  • The goal is to get more hard cider into the hands of people and to help them understand that ciders are agricultural projects. 
  • "There's somebody tilling the ground to make that happen for you," Hartranft said.
