Michigan Ciders

Below you'll find an excerpt to a cider related blog post from "Life Is Fare - One woman's approach to living life to the fullest by eating happy food". I received the link for this story in my comments from the author. Needless to say I was very jealous. I've always wanted to make it out to Michigan and check out the cider scene. I'm in contact and email with a few folks out there and have found their ciders to be real good too.

Michigan is also home to the "Great Lakes Cider & Perry Association" who organizes and hosts the only International competition that is exclusively for Cider and Perry. They are also hosting the upcoming 3rd Annual Great Lakes Cider & Perry Festival to be held Sept 11-12 Uncle John's Cider Mill (one of Michigan's premier cider makers) at 8614 N US 127, St. Johns, MI. Tickets can be purchased here:

So read the excerpt and click on over to read the rest of the post as the author tours and tastes ciders from Michigan's own Tandem Ciders, Good Neighbor Organic Vineyard & Winery and Douglas Valley Organic Vineyards.

I gotta mention all three cider makers and many more Michigan cideries can be found on my North American Cider Map too... Go find and drink cider in Michigan!


On a Mission for Hard Cider

I’ve been drinking hard cider ever since I lived in London two decades ago. After that, I lived for a short time in Brattleboro, Vermont, where I was happy to find hard cider on tap at a place called Three Dollar Dewey’s. Ever since, I’ve had a taste for it, especially in the fall. Now, Michigan is my destination for hard cider. Nothing beats buying your happy hour drink from a local producer! Read more here...

Thanks for the comments and link Marcia! Much appreciated.

Thanks for the intro, Dave. I agree, you should make it out to Michigan sometime. Beyond the cider tour I did on a trip to Northern Lower Michigan, we have some nice ciders here in West Michigan, especially at our own New Holland Brewery:
