Cider School is back in session!
We’ve crushed our patio ciders in the summer sun, and are excited to start a new year with information-packed and cider-soaked classes.
Tickets include a flight of 4 ciders, light snacks, and course instructor (we always finish with a special bottle opening, as well!). Class space is limited, so we recommend purchasing tickets ahead of time.
January 8th: Wood Aged Ciders
In barrel aging, there is a wide spectrum of intensity of flavor based on the wood to cider ratio and the previous use of the wood (beer, whiskey, wine, etc.). In this class, we will explore these different wooden vessels and gauge their impact on a flight of four ciders.
Adventure awaits; but travelers beware. The road does not always lead where we hope.
January 22nd: French Cidre
France has some of the strictest laws, and most delicious cider. French cider making shows how centuries of tradition lead to specific techniques and distinct flavours. This class will take you through what France has to offer, and why their cidre is so unique. Your instructor is fresh off a trip to Normandy and will have loads of tasty stories and treats.
January 29th: Wild/Funky/Sour
If you embrace the funk, this school is for you. Join us as we explore the vast world of wild fermentation, phenolic aromas, and acetic ciders.
February 19th: Get Buzzed
Mead is the oldest fermented beverage in history, but only lately have we begun to discover all it has to offer us. In this class we will explore the history of mead as well as the innovative approach of modern mead makers.
