Publisher's Summary

Cider is having a major moment, and The Cider Revival charts its history, resurgence, and a year with the vanguard makers of heritage cider 

Cider is the quintessential American beverage. Drank by early settlers and founding fathers, it was ubiquitous and pervasive, but following Prohibition when orchards were destroyed and neglected, cider all but disappeared. In The Cider Revival, Jason Wilson chronicles what is happening now, an extraordinary rebirth that is less than a decade old.

Following the seasons through the autumn harvest, winter fermentation, spring bottling, and summer festival and orchard work, Wilson travels around New York and New England, with forays to the Midwest, the West Coast, and Europe. He meets the new heroes of cider: orchardists who are rediscovering long lost apple varieties, cider makers who have the attention to craftsmanship of natural wine makers, and beverage professionals who see cider as poised to explode in popularity. What emerges is a deeply rewarding story, an exploration of cider’s identity and future, and its cultural and environmental significance. A blend of history and travelogue, The Cider Revival is a toast to a complex drink.

Good overview of heritage cider producers

Was a good overview of heritage cider producers if you want to find some new ones to try. Was weird that he weaved Trump politics throughout the book, didn’t help the cider narrative at all and seemed like something the editor should have removed

I thought It was about Cider, its a Trump Book!

I thought I was purchasing a book about cider however the author turns it into a book about Trump. He mentions Trumps name more than Cider. horrible way to politicalsize cider!
