In Part 1 of “Cider Ignites NYC” we chat with New York Cidermakers and enthusiasts who are attending Hidden Stars, a cider fest held during NYC Cider Week 2017.
First up is Kyle Sherrer of Graft Cider in Newburgh New York known for making wild ferment “sour” ciders (that Sidra lovers adore) more accessible to fans of cider – read: packaging in cans.
Congratulations to Graft Cider for celebrating a 1 year anniversary on October 31, 2017.
Next we chat with Dylan who was pouring for Naked Flock Hard Cider Experience Dylan shares the fun, background story behind the naked goose on the label and an upcoming event!
Danielle von Scheiner, who was on Cider Chat episode 35, is the cidermaker and owner of Big Apple Hard Cider. Danielle shares with us how she is sending all the proceeds from her “Soho Cider” to Gods Love We Deliver a New York non profit with the mission of improving “the health and well-being of men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other serious illnesses by alleviating hunger and malnutrition. They prepare and deliver nutritious, high-quality meals to people who, because of their illness, are unable to provide or prepare meals for themselves. We also provide illness-specific nutrition education and counseling to our clients, families, care providers and other service organizations.”
Find Big Apple Hard Cider at The Ear Inn, NYC oldest continuously pub since 1817.
Then we get a to hear from Cider Enthusiasts attending Hidden Stars as they let us know about their cider drinking history and what exactly they would like to learn more about cider.
