Merridale Cidery. We tasted 5 out of their 12 ciders and purchased bottles of our 3 favorites. During our visit the two of us began talking to a local at their tasting bar and learned that there's a rich cider world in Canada.
Later, my curiosity about why a young U.S. had nearly abandoned their European cider heritage, took me all over Google. I read several theories, but no one I read is exactly sure about what happened. Although, the theory about the fledgling beer industry successfully pushing for laws to make life tough for their cider competitors makes a lot of sense.
It was during that same Google search I found Wandering Aengus' website. N and I have been in love ever since. :>) I recently learned that the number of U.S. cideries is increasing by the year. Good news that! I'm looking forward to next year when I plan on heading north to one of the cider festivals. Meanwhile, I'll try and keep up on what's new in the cider world at Old Time Cider.
