It is Friday again, #ciderlovers. What a great week it’s been, but we’re glad the weekend’s here!
The arrival of Friday means one thing: a new roundup of the most notable and like-worthy cider content on Instagram. The #ciderworld has been busy this week with fun photos of National Coffee Day, harvest festivals, odd rituals and crazy cider concoctions. Check out some of our favorites from September 30–October 6:
Hunt, gather, ferment! I hope everyone is spending these first days of fall in the water or on an orchard somewhere! Get outside and do something exhausting, push yourself, gather or kill your food, and then enjoy the end of your day with a cider! (And maybe a brew in their as well)! #homegrown #hardcider #westcounty
Cider Culture challenge: Name that fish! Waterhouse Cider Co. caught a serious monster of a fish while out on the water this past week. The message in this post is simple: enjoy the season! Get outside, push yourself to do something awesome, then finish the day reminiscing with a rewarding glass of cider. It really is all about the simple things.
I’m sorry, did you say you had an espresso bar in your cidery? It’s a dream come true! Buskey Hard Cider celebrated National Coffee Day this past week by hosting a pop-up espresso bar in its cidery, compliments of another Richmond, Va.-based small biz: Lamplighter Coffee. What a great way to start the day!
One word: Ectoplasm! My love for Ghostbusters runs deep, so hearing about this new cider release just made my week. Far From The Tree Hard Cider just started distributing its Ectoplasm Cider this week in Salem, Mass. Made with spicy jalapeños, green peppers and limes, this is a fantastically green, ingenious cider!
Drink up this year’s delicious harvest! This week, Virtue Cider made an appearance at this year’s Fulton Market Harvest Fest. The festival brought together some of Chicago’s amazing food scene, craft beverages, great live music and plenty of cooking demonstrations. Sounds like it was a blast!
Well, that was fun . . . #mtciderweek We kicked off Montana Cider Week by sacrificing the Poor Farmer to the dunk tank gods. Fingers crossed – this insures a prosperous Fall, abundant apples, and great cider. ??Thanks to everyone who came out and made the Harvest Party a blast! Find us @dramshopmt on Tuesday, Last Chance Cider (Billings) and @thomas_meagher_bar on Wednesday, Montana Ale Works (Bozeman) and The Rhino (Missoula) on Thursday, and @moonrandolphhomestead on Saturday. See Facebook @mtciderweek for more details.YEEHAW! ? @riochantel
May the dunk tank gods bless the harvest! Montana Cider Week kicked off this week with the sacrifice of the Poor Farmer, to ensure an abundant apple season. Western Cider was one of the cideries to make an appearance at the fun-filled festivities. (Note: No farmers were harmed during Montana Cider Week.)
Research shows that having breakfast each morning helps to give you more energy. So be sure to drink your “morning apple juice” each and every day.
