Cider Culture Virtual Happy Hour #8: Co-Hosted with Peter Gillitzer of Milk & Honey Ciders (Friday, May 8, 5 p.m. ET)

We’re back for our eighth Friday Cider Culture Zoom happy hour! This week, we’ll be hanging with Peter Gillitzer of Milk & Honey Ciders, a Minnesota-based producer of American cider made from heirloom and traditional cider apple cultivars. Milk & Honey’s farmhouse cidery and orchard focus on interesting, dry, highly aromatic and tannic ciders made in the rolling hills of Stearns County with minimal intervention.

Milk & Honey Ciders

Milk & Honey is currently offering to-go cider from its cidery taproom in St. Joseph, Minnesota, and it is shipping cider across the country in both bottles and awesome lightweight 1.5-liter “bagnuums.”

Peter is one of Milk & Honey’s co-founders. He comes from the agricultural industry and has also received training in the cider and perry world. He attended classes taught by the renowned Peter Mitchell and is well versed in all cider- and perry-making practices. Get to know Peter and learn a bit more about this awesome cider brand!
