Hard Cider Tasting conducted by Tom Christopher with music by the Easy Ridin’ Papas
October 19 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm$20.00
Join us for an introduction to the flavors and history of New England’s traditional beverage: hard cider. Long-time cider maker and enthusiast Tom Christopher will speak about the history of cider making in our region, and then invite the audience to taste a flight of ciders from a variety of makers, both amateur and professional.
We’ll explore a range of flavors and styles of cider, from traditional New England farmhouse ciders made locally to European inspired ciders from some of the best cider houses in the region.
The popular local duo the Easy Ridin’ Papas (Adam Brown on guitar and vocals, Will Conklin on trumpet, cornet, and vocals) will provide musical interludes with Depression-era country blues and jazz.
