Cider School!

Published by Dave Putman

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.


October 9th: French Cider

France has some of the strictest laws, and 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.

October 30th: Absinthe

Absinthe is one of the most misunderstood spirits, due to nothing more than a witch hunt. In this class we will explore what absinthe is, how to drink it, and how it got such a mysterious reputation. We are pleased to have Jay and Noelle DiPrizio of Chicago Distilling Company to chat about their very own absinthe.

*Cost will be $35

November 6th: English Cider

Take a tour around English cider country. We will taste ciders from places like Somerset, Herefordshire, and Devon. The instructor is coming fresh off the boat, and will have many stories to tell you about rural English cider culture while you sip on thy cyder.
