Upcoming Cider Talk and Living History Demo at Pennsbury Manor

On Sunday, September 24th, from 1-4 pm I’ll be at Pennsybury Manor in Morrisville, PA for their Beer Brewing Sunday talking about cider.

At 1 pm I’m presenting my ever-evolving talk “Cider: Pennsylvania’s Once (and Future?) Favorite.” Afterwards and until 4 pm I’ll be there with my colonial cidermaking demo talking about the tools and techniques of early American cidering.

Hope you can make it!

On Saturday, October 7th at 1 pm I’m presenting an original talk, “Did Prohibition Prohibit Cider?” at the Sigal Museum in Easton, PA in connection with their new exhibition, The Cat’s Meow: Lehigh Valley in the Age of Art Deco & the Roaring Twenties.

Prohibition is often blamed for abruptly ending American cider, yet it didn’t change our taste for beer, wine, or spirits. Come find out how Prohibition did and did not change cidermaking in Pennsylvania.
