Celebrating the Craft Cider Renaissance at 200 restaurants, pubs, shops and markets
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.
Join the cider revival this October 18-27 during Cider Week NY. Partner locales will feature orchard-based, regional ciders in tasting menus, pairings, flights, cocktails, events and classes. For the complete list of participating Cider Week locations throughout the region, visit ciderweekny.com/locations.
Hard cider happenings taking place in our area throughout the week include, but are not limited to:
- Cider Week Kick-off at Glynwood, including heirloom apple and cider tastings, as well as a special cider and goat themed farm dinner, in Cold Spring on Saturday, Oct. 19
- The Beacon Road to Cider, a day of cider tastings at bars, restaurants and shops along Main Street in partnership with Artisan Wine Shop in Beacon on Sunday, Oct. 20
Details about these and many more throughout the region can be found at ciderweekny.com/events. New events added daily.
Drink an apple, save an orchard this October. Thanks to efforts like Cider Week, the number of cideries in the Hudson Valley alone has more than tripled over the past few years, with plans for more cideries underway.
