This Weekend: Cider and the City

10/14/2011 3:30 PM |


Beginning this Sunday, October 16, the Big Apple will be overrun with numerous variations of its favorite fruit. Apple Project’s Cider Week festivities will begin with New Amsterdam Market’s “A Cider Revival,” featuring hard cider samples, apple pies, seasonal hors d’oeuvres, and much more. And that is only the beginning. This weeklong celebration of cider—fermented apple juice—includes a plethora of fun events such as panel discussions, how to make your own cider classes, cider pairings, and of course cheese.

Spend the next week getting tipsy on this Autumnal beverage whilst getting to know its makers. Although there will be special events highlighting ciders and apple alcohols native to NYC, the bubbly drink will also hail from the Hudson Valley and from all the way across the pond from France.

With events like Astor Center’s second annual “Applepalooza,” “Cider Draft Night,” and countless tastings, apple ciders, spirits, wines, and cocktails will surely give you your apple fix until next year.
