This week on Beer Sessions, a celebration of Cider Week! Jimmy talks about everything Cider with Steve Selin, owner of South Hill Cider; Mike Reis, owner of Redfield Cider; Karl du Hoffman, owner of Orchard Hill Cider; and Paige Fiori, owner of Boutique Wines and Spirits in Fishkill NY.
Steve and Mike dive into the exciting experimentation happening in cider, from exploring new spices and fruits to fire pressure in California driving many winemakers to explore the possibilities of cider. Mike and Paige talk about what it takes to get consumers interested in cider and break down how they choose the selection of ciders they offer from shelves to tasting rooms.
Speaking of unique ciders, Karl and Jimmy dive into the novelty of the pommeau, from its minimum aging time of three years to the unique depth and fruitiness one can expect. Finally, the episode concludes with the gang trying to summarize New York cider in three words. To quote Jimmy, “Oh boy wow!”
