City of Ciderly-Love

In 1775, John Adams complained about the quality of Philadelphia alcohols in a letter to his wife Abigail. He was homesick for her cider. If John Adams were around Philly today he would be texting Abigail about the amazing hard cider that is being produced. It is the apple that was one of the first crops grown in America. Apples made the voyage over on the Mayflower. In Colonial America, fermented beverages were an important source of safe drinking water. Cider was the way that many started the day. An average of 35 gallons of hard cider, per person, was being consumed each year by the mid 1700’s. Prohibition nearly eradicated hard cider. The only apples that remained were eating apples. Many cider orchards were burned to the ground by die-hard temperance advocates. Fast forward to today. Cider has not only made a comeback, it is thriving. The Philadelphia Cider scene is fresh, vibrant and creative. Pennsylvania orchards are once again supplying delicious varieties that are perfect for pressing. Here are 4 cideries in Philadelphia that you need to check out and go back to again.
