Inkwood Books welcomes back author Jason Wilson to celebrate the release of his new book The Cider Revival. He'll bring a selection of ciders to taste, and chat with you about all things cider; we'll have snacks, and of course plenty of books to purchase and have signed. We always have a great time with Jason - you won't want to miss it!

ABOUT THE BOOK: Cider is having a major moment, and The Cider Revival charts its history, resurgence, and a year with the vanguard makers of heritage cider

Cider is the quintessential American beverage. Drank by early settlers and founding fathers, it was ubiquitous and pervasive, but following Prohibition when orchards were destroyed and neglected, cider all but disappeared. In The Cider Revival, Jason Wilson chronicles what is happening now, an extraordinary rebirth that is less than a decade old.

Following the seasons through the autumn harvest, winter fermentation, spring bottling, and summer festival and orchard work, Wilson travels around New York and New England, with forays to the Midwest, the West Coast, and Europe. He meets the new heroes of cider: orchardists who are rediscovering long lost apple varieties, cider makers who have the attention to craftsmanship of natural wine makers, and beverage professionals who see cider as poised to explode in popularity. What emerges is a deeply rewarding story, an exploration of cider’s identity and future, and its cultural and environmental significance. A blend of history and travelogue, The Cider Revival is a toast to a complex drink.

PRAISE
"Wilson is a passionate guide who brings readers on an encyclopedic journey through the cult of cider and its resident obsessives. From unraveling the history of the apple to exploring the intricacies of flavor, THE CIDER REVIVAL reveals the love and labor that goes into a timeless beverage that's full of surprises."
— Bianca Bosker, author of Cork Dork
