Though the northeastern United States were the largest cider-producing region in preindustrial North America, by the early 1900s its popularity was waning, primarily due to large numbers of German and Eastern European immigrants—with a serious thirst for beer—flooding the region. And after prohibition, American cider was nearly extinct.

In the early 2000s, Jason Grizzanti (who studied cidermaking at Cornell University) and ex-banker Jeremy Kidde bought an apple orchard in Warwick, NY, in the Black Dirt Region of Orange County, taking the chance on producing a traditional English-style cider during a time when there was market for it, and called their company Warwick Valley Winery.

It turned out cider made an impossibly huge comeback, and Warwick is now producing 50,000 of Doc's Cider yearly today, distributing to 20 states. For this week's edition of our Tuesday Night Tasting series, Dave Woodlock, brand manager for Doc's Ciders, will guide us in a tasting of five of Warwick Valley's ciders.

As usual, Tuesday Night Tastings at Bierkraft are free, fun, and open to the public, but be sure to arrive early as seating is limited. Cheers!
