Harvest Fun!

Harvest Fun!

Harvest is always a busy time for cider makers and for us it has been particularly busy this year as we decided to start a Community Cider making project upstate in North Branch, Sullivan County, NY.  We've been collecting apples all over Sullivan County and we will be making a special batch of cider to make available to our apple donators and a limited release that will be available in the Fall.  

Here are a couple of shots of some of the natural beauty we stumbled across during our harvest adventures 2015.

Descendant Dry Launching Friday 21st August

On Friday 21st August we will be launching our first vintage cider quite simply called "Dry" . This 2014 harvest cider is a blend of new world, heritage variety apples including Winesap and Northern Spy. It's our cider makers favorite cider to make as it's quality is derived from fruit selection, yeast characteristics and the patience of many months of aging before bottling. Hand Crafted in small batches.

To celebrate we will be teaming up with the amazing team at Wassail on the Lower East Side to celebrate with lots of delicious cider.  Party starts at 8pm.  We look forward to seeing you there!

Collaboration Cider with Bar Great Harry

Collaboration Cider with Bar Great Harry

As neighbors and patrons, we were delighted to be invited to create a special cider with Jon Tannen over at Bar Great Harry (BGH) for their 8th Anniversary celebrating the heritage of the Italian influence of Carroll Gdns.  The cider that was developed was hopped with a hint of marjoram - and it is delicious! 

The hopped cider is going to be served at all of the BGH family of bar's over the next few weeks, so stop by at BGH, The Owl Farm , Mission Delores or Glorietta Baldy for a taste!  Other bar's you might be lucky enough to snag a pint soon include Covenhoven, Proletariate and Pine Box Rock Shop.

The Anniversary party was amazing and we celebrated along with the amazing brewer's Anthony & Rob of Transmitter, who created a special collaboration beer for the anniversary.  We also indulged in some very special beers, notably the Cantillion and CBS.

And thank you for all the friends of Descendant that came out on Saturday for the anniversary party - it was a riot!  If you want more information about our upcoming events, please sign up on the contact form
