Education Series: The Apfelwein traditions of Germany with Darlene Hayes

  • Fountainhead 1970 West Montrose Avenue Chicago, IL, 60613 United States (map)

Darlene Hayes (@allintocider) combines history, culture, tasting to bring apfelweins produced near Frankfurt to life. Ms Hayes has made several exploratory trips to the birth of this cider in the last several years, and has amazing stories and samples to share. The tastings will include an homage cider made in the apfelwein style by American cideries Prima and Tilted Shed. We will also tour German producers from Andreas Schneider to Possmann's, and sample apfelwein not available in the United States. The tradition of using things like speierling (Sorbus domestica) and medlar to add tannin and flavor to cider seems to be unique to the cidermakers around Frankfurt. Darlene will explore this fascinating style through story and taste! This lecture is not to be missed.
