New York’s Third Annual Cider Week  is being held October 18-27 and we are ready to celebrate! Hard cider was an American tradition until the early 20th century, when it was lost to Prohibition and urbanization. Glynwood’s Apple Project has been working to increase the profitability of the region’s apple orchards by galvanizing a regional hard cider industry. In addition to working directly with producers, Glynwood launched Cider Week, a ten-day promotional event in October when hard cider is featured in top restaurants, bars, shops and events in New York City and the Hudson Valley. Over the past three years, Cider Week has helped to catalyze the renaissance for hard cider across the region and beyond.

This year Chef/owner Eric Gabrynowicz of Restaurant North has prepared a special fall harvest inspired menu for the evening that will accentuate the subtle nuances of hard cider. Special guest Jeremy Kidde of Warwick Valley Winery & Distillery will be on hand to lead a cider tasting and share a special new release with guests. The price of the event is $55 per person. Seats are limited so reserve now. Contact Kimmy by calling  914-273-8686 or email events@restaurantnorth.com. We look forward to seeing you at  Restaurant North.

The growing market for craft cider is helping to revive heirloom apple varieties that are enhancing biodiversity, improving cider quality and renewing a lost part of the Hudson Valley’s farming history.

Join food writer Rowan Jacobsen and cider producers Andrew Brennan of Aaron Burr Cider and Adam Fincke of Montgomery Place Orchards to sample some of the Hudson Valley’s unique heirloom apple varieties. These heirloom apples provide a spectrum of distinctive flavors that will be sure to intrigue and delight. During the event, you’ll get to taste some of the uncommon apple varieties that go into making some of the artisanal hard ciders that will be featured during Cider Week. Along the way, Rowan will narrate the history of each heirloom apple variety.

About Rowan Jacobsen: Rowan Jacobsen is the James Beard Award-winning author of A Geography of Oysters, American Terroir, and the forthcoming Apples of Uncommon Character. He lives in Vermont.
