How do a couple of Brooklynites go from having respectable day jobs to making cider full time? It takes an eye-opening experience in Basque country, some tromping around in orchards, and a lot of strange looks from their friends and family along the way.
Brooklyn Cider House makes cider using only fresh, in season apples from upstate NY. They've also just planted an additional 8,000 heirloom variety trees in their orchard.
The cidermakers will be at Wassail to debut their current release of "Half Sour", their "most thought-provoking cider." It bears aromas of wild flowers, and pickled pear, with brazen citrus notes on the palate.
Meet them, and find out more about visiting their soon-to-open tasting room and production facility in Bushwick.
All are welcome to this pay-as-you-go event.
