Cider Week Returns to the Hudson Valley

by

comment

It's not as big an industry as it was in days of yore, but cider making—hard cider, specifically—was a staple industry of the earliest European settlers in the Hudson Valley and many of the following generations. And thanks to Cider Week (October 18-27), an effort launched in 2011 by Glynwood, a nonprofit organization promoting sustainable local agriculture, America's oldest libation is making a crisp comeback. With events both Upstate and in New York, Cider Week 2013 presents dozens of special programs at participating bars and bistros that feature cider and dishes made with the sweet spirit.
