Celebrating Hudson Valley Cider Week, join Max Pritchard of Hudson Valley Farmhouse Cider and taste some terrific ciders! Check them out online: http://www.hudsonvalleyfarmhousecider.com/about-us.html
With fruit produced at Breezy Hill Orchards in Staatsburg, NY and Stone Ridge Orchard near New Paltz, Elizabeth Ryan has been crafting cider for several decades. Most cider producers are passionate about their craft, but Ryan exudes an all-encompassing energy for her work. Ryan studied cidermaking in England and also spent some time with the inimitable Duponts in Normandy. She operates the orchards in great concern for and attention to both the work environment and the ecological well being of the farm. Her ciders are beautifully rendered, crisp, dry and full of character. We're excited to welcome Max Pritchard, Hudson Valley Farmhouse Cider's assistant cidermaker, as he pours four fabulous ciders: God Speed the Plow, Traditional, Scrumpy and Maeve's.
