Apple Cider Industry News

The history of apple cider in America goes back to the Colonial days, Pete Brown and Bill Bradshaw write in their book World’s Best Ciders, "Cider was much easier to make in an untamed land than other drinks, and even when beer arrived, cider remained much cheaper. By 1767, the average Massachusetts resident drank 35 gallons of cider a year — a calculation that includes children.” 

Although the history of apple cider is old, it has recently grown in popularity. Even companies such as Bud Light are branching out into hard cider. Keep up to date on the latest apple cider industry news by browsing the links below.
