Join us as we kick off Chicago Cider Week Monday, February 4th. Cider School is in session with special guest Cider Maker Kristen Needham Jordan of Sea Cider (British Columbia). Each year, the USACM Conference features an international cider tradition and invites guests from that country to share their experience and their cider! This year, the guests of honor are from Canada; so we extended an invitation of our own. Kristen is an innovative cider maker, and she will talk about her process as we taste through a flight of four distinctive ciders alongside table snacks. This is a chance to learn from the maker herself.
With another year in the books for CiderCon and Chicago Cider Week, we have plenty to catch up on. In this class, we will give highlights, share stories, and taste some of the best ciders from this years festivities.
Join Charlie Davis of Right Bee Cider as he talks about starting up a cider company in an urban environment. We will cover sourcing apples, cider making essentials and what is next for the Right Bee crew in 2019! Of course, we will also have a flight of four Right Bee Ciders, as well as table side snacks.
Wormwood is a botanical used to flavor multiple spirits and wines, most famously Absinthe. In this class, we will taste a wide range of products that highlight the delightful tastes of wormwood. We will dive into the rich history and misconceptions of this lovely plant; from vermouth to malort, wormwood doesnt disappoint.
