Please note: This event is happening in our private Back Room, is a series of talks/panels/sessions with the bar/dining area open all day for regular customers, reservations, etc.

1PM – Jacob Lagoner with Embark Cask Sampling will talk about cask ciders, apple varieties and the evolution of cider making in his area of NY State
2PM – Cheese and Cider Sampling with Lauren McDowell (editor of Cheese Rank) and Jahil Maplestone of Descendant Cider featuring Murray’s Cheese (and Descendant cask)
3PM – “Wild Apples” with cider makers Steve Selin and Andy Brennan: A discussion of using foraged apples for cider recipes
4PM – “The Intersection of Beer and Cider” with Josh Bernstein and Eric West featuring West Coast Ciders from “Rev” Nat West of Reverend Nat’s Ciders
5PM – Apple Varieties with Loulou Spencer of Farnum Hill and Kevin Zielinski of EZ Orchards
6PM – Natural Wine and Cider Making with wine writer Alice Feiring and Andy Brennan
Additional features expected:
  • Embark Ciders will be bringing a VSC (Very Special Cask) that we’ll tap and sample, with cider maker Jacob Lagoner on hand to talk about his ciders
  • Eleanor Leger of Eden Ice Ciders will be in attendance, as will be Big Apple Ciders right here from Brooklyn
  • Jahil Maplestone of Descendant Cider will bring a VSC of his “Pair” (half perry/half cider) as part of the cheese and cider tasting
  • Tasting areas will be set up throughout Jimmy’s No. 43 and we hope to welcome premier NY State (and beyond) cider makers
  • Plenty of time to mix and mingle with the best and brightest cider makers in America
