Event description
Explore hundreds of years of American hard cider heritage while enjoying a Metal House Cider tasting from the comfort of your home!

About this event

Join us on Saturday, February 5th, for a Hudson Valley Hard Cider Talk & Tasting, a virtual gathering hosted by the Putnam History Museum. All proceeds from the event support the museum.

The evening features an historic talk by Dan Pucci and Craig Cavallo, authors of American Cider: A Modern Guide to a Historic Beverage, and tasting notes by Kimberly Kae, co-owner of the esteemed Metal House Cider in Esopus, NY.

We invite you to join us for an evening celebrating and exploring one of the nation’s oldest beverages.

About the speakers:

Dan Pucci is one of the nation's leading cider experts. He was the founding beverage director at Wassail, New York City's first cider bar and restaurant, and has since traveled the country in a continued pursuit of cider education, awareness, and research. He is a partner in Wallabout Hospitality, a New York City-based consulting and hospitality company.

Craig Cavallo lived in New York City for thirteen years, working in restaurants, blogging about food trends, and writing for Saveur. His work has been published in Condé Nast Traveler, GQ, New York magazine's Grub Street, Thrillist, and Vice Munchies. He left New York City for the Hudson Valley, and when he's not at Golden Russet Cafe & Grocery, the café that he owns and operates with his wife, Jenny, he can be found picking fenceline apples and dabbling in his own cellar cider experiments

About Metal House Cider:

Owned by Kimberly Kae and her husband, Matt DiFrancesco, Metal House makes small-batch ciders in the méthode champenoise tradition, using only untreated/organic Hudson Valley apples from their Biointensive/Biodynamic orchard (one of the oldest orchards in the state).
