As hard cider becomes more popular as a craft beverage, we return to its earliest days in America. Favored by colonists who wanted to avoid potentially dangerous drinking water, cider fueled Puritans as well as patriots including John Adams. In the 19thcentury, Sherborn became known for hosting the largest refined cider mill in the United States exporting their “Champagne Cider” across America and as far as Europe. Join Historic Newton and Stormalong American Hard Cider for a look at cider history as well as its current appeal. End with cider and snacks. $10 per person (age 21+); free for Historic Newton members.
