All Necessary Disclosures...

First off, I do not get paid by cider companies to write reviews. This site is purely for the love of the beverage.

I have my own taste preferences for cider. I tend to prefer tannic dry ciders with some sparkle to them. Bottle conditioning makes my day.  Hopped ciders get my attention. I often enjoy the inclusion of heritage varieties or cider apples. Mind you, ciders surprise me all the time as well. My reviews are candid, and I try to be specific and descriptive more than just sharing whether or not I like any given cider. After all, maybe you prefer still, sweet ciders. 

Many of the ciders I review are sample bottles given to me for review at this point. I also buy ciders and get ciders from friends, internet friends, strangers, and cider trades. These free ciders get reviewed exactly like those I buy. They really help out my blog because my cider budget is limited and not all ciders are sold in upstate NY. I appreciate the chance to try all kinds of ciders, even those pretty far from my own preferences, and every single one gets a fair shake.

Other cider work I do is paid. I do freelance writing, consultation, judging, speaking and teaching. I love doing these things as well, so please feel free to reach out if you want to hire a cider nerd. Email me!

The views expressed here are 100% my own. Mostly though, I just love cider. Don't you?
