Getting a little bored with plain old wine and beer? So are we, but there's no need to fear!
In fact, there might be no better place to get your fall groove on then at the Brooklyn Cider House, opening next month at 1100 Flushing Ave.
The cidery is the brainchild of innovator Peter Yi, a wine buyer who walked away from a 25 year business in 2014, after a eureka moment at a Basque Country cidery to pursue his dream of bringing the apple-y haven he'd experienced to Brooklyn.
This sprawling, 15,000 square foot oasis will feature an on-site cidery as well as a tasting room, bar, and restaurant, where guests can order yummy dishes like cider-braised chorizo and dry-aged rib eye designed to pair with one of five varieties of the cider offered.
This all-natural drink is made almost exclusively from apples, aged between two and 18 months, and fermented with wild and white wine yeasts. Flavors of the unique brew include "Kinda Dry," "Bone Dry," "Still Bone Dry," "Half Sour," and "Raw".
If you just can't wait to give them a try, you can buy Yi's ciders online at the Brooklyn Cider House website, visit his orchard upstate in New Paltz, or check out their map of vendors across New York City.
As stressful as life is in the big apple, we could probably all use a feel-good indulgence like this one– after all, the doctor did say an apple a day, right?[via Time Out] [Feature Image Courtesy Instagram]
