What in the world is scrumpy cider? Close out Cider Week New York 2023 with a history lesson from Elizabeth Ryan, fermenter, pomologist, cider maker, and NY State Cider Pioneer at Hudson Valley Farmhouse Cider’s Breezy Hill Orchard; and also Fee Doyle, bartender, beertender, cider drinker, beer writer, folk musician, and Beer Witch ambassador.
With Cider Week coming to a close, this episode is a great accounting of all things cider: Growing apples, making, selecting, and selling cider, and general scrumpy education! Learn about Elizabeth’s farms, and get the lowdown on cider’s evolution from Fee, who’s been dishing the stuff out to fermented-apple-beverage lovers for years. Plus, get down with some folk music chit chat!
Tune in and get scrumpy!
