Beer School-Foggy Ridge Cider Session
Tuesday, September 2nd
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Whole Foods Vienna Pub, $5

"Foggy Ridge Cider is the first cidery south of MA to focus full time on growing heirloom cider apples and making artisan cider. Foggy Ridge grows over 30 cider apple varieties, including many English and Colonial American varieties not widely grown in Va. Apples like Hewe's Crab (grown by Thomas Jefferson for cider at Monticello), Ashmead's Kernel, Harrison (a famous colonial cider apple), Tremlett's Bitter and Dabinett are blended into 4 sparkling ciders and 1 apple port. Foggy Ridge Cider is farm cider-we work hard to translate the special flavors and aromas of real cider apples into a fermented cider. This cider is crisp, elegant and full of flavor with no added sugar, flavorings like oak, hops or other fruit juices. Diane Flynt, owner, has been a trailblazer in the cider indusrty and Foggy Ridge Cider is distributed in 10 states plus DC."

Join us for a great cider class!
