Ciders of Spain and Food Pairings

November 12, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Come try an incredibly diverse range of Spanish ciders paired with foods that bring out their unique earthy, tart and sour qualities. The “sidra” will be paired with an assortment of charcuterie such as cured meats, olives, earthy cheeses, and even a fig almond torta.  Styles range from traditionals which are close to sour beer, sparklers reminiscent of Champagne, Prosecco & Albarino, to  a wild yeast fermented pear and sherry-like frost cider. Except for the dessert frost cider, all the offerings are uncommonly dry, low in sugar and exceedingly refreshing.
No cost to participate, just bring an appetite for learning and discover why “sidra” is arguably the most food friendly and storied of fermented beverages, with a legacy dating back more than 3000 years! The tasting will be led by Ken Zuckerman of Ciders of Spain, a 20 year veteran educator in craft beer, artisanal food & cider.
