Cider School is back from summer vacation!
Our winter hours are over, and we are back on for full service Monday nights.
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.
August 6th: Seasonal Picking
We all can feel the changes of the season, but do we know how they change the orchard? More importantly, do we know how they change the apple? The heart of cider is the apple. In this class we will cover all aspects of this amazingly hearty tree with a complicated growing patterns and seasonality.
August 13th: Calvados, Cognac, Brandy, Oh My!
Brandy isn’t just something your Wisconsin Grandmother drinks, it’s a vast and expansive category with delightful tastes and aromas. Fruit- and grape-based distillates are found all over the world, and are worth exploring. This class will cover the basics of brandy history, style, and how to taste.
August 20th: A Rose by Any Other Name
We have seen an explosion in the number of rose ciders available lately. But what is it? Why does this trend connect? We will taste a range of roses, as well as explore what other ciders are out there that do not use the name but can rival the best “Rose” ciders in the market.
