It is finally that time of year, where the Big Apple (NYC) gets to enjoy big time apple cider. Apple cider and hard apple cider are in right now, which is great news for cider fans Now, if you’re like me then you most likely started craving cider in October and bought a pint from your local grocery store. Don’t get me wrong there some great prepackaged offerings out there, but there is nothing like fresh apple cider and that warm smell of apples.
As with most great beverages, not all are created equal, so this is the time to decide the champion. From November 6-15 New York City will host its annual Cider Week. Cider week will include a host of events in Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn with some of the best cider makers and local food in the world! Whether you like it hot and apples only, or cold and boozy there is an event for you. Most local restaurants team up with cider creators to enhance the experience for critics. Some of our favorites are the Gramercy Tavern’s event on Friday Nov 13, and the closing event on the 15th at The Drink in Brooklyn. Can you imagine apple pie with warm cider? How you like them apples?
Even if you’re aren’t a fan of pie there are will be other restaurants there with samples to enhance your cider experience so get there early and use the ParkWhiz app to find easy parking before all of the free samples run out! Most makers will also have additional cider available for purchase so make sure to note your favorite and tell us about it!
