Chris and Mary are hard at work running Fifth Hammer Brewing in Long Island City. So while we don't have a new Fuhmentaboudit! episode for you, we have something else to share: Hard Core is a new series from Heritage Radio Network taking a close look at the rebirth of American cider! Over the course of six episodes we’ll break through folksy stereotypes to gain a deeper understanding of where the cider industry began and where it’s headed. Hear from orchardists, cider makers, policy experts and academics to learn about everything from the science of fermentation, to the magic of terroir, and the challenges of breaking into the beverage market.This episode is all about history. Cider has been a part of American history since the first colonists hit our shores. But while apples took root on this newly claimed continent, so did the slave trade. We’ll break down common narratives about the founding fathers’ disposition for cider and talk about some of the ways cider makers today are engaging with the past. Plus, we’ll talk prohibition and explore the emergence of a new generation of cider drinkers.
