Guide To Cider Week In NYC 2018
Autumn brings certain beverages to the forefront: pumpkin spice lattes, steamy cups of hot chocolate, and of course, cider! To really jump into the celebration of cider season, join in on the annual fall event, Cider Week NYC. Held from November 2nd through 11th 2018, Cider Week is a time to celebrate craft cider by indulging in tastings, dinners, classes, and more, all throughout NYC. From top restaurants and bars to retail shops, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to indulge in all things cider-centric.
You can find the full lineup of spots participating in Cider Week on their website, but we’ve gone ahead and highlighted our “can’t miss” events below…all conveniently taking place near a Glenwood neighborhood!
For Cider Tastings
If you’re on the Upper East Side, head to City Swiggers, located at 320 East 86th Street. Enjoy a free tasting on Wednesday, November 7th from 6 to 9pm. You’ll be able to nestle comfortably into one of their 30 seats, and then perhaps grab your favorite cider to go. With plenty of choices of ciders to choose from, we’re confident you’ll find your new favorite for fall! This Upper East Side hotspot is just steps away from Glenwood’s luxury building The Cambridge, located on 500 East 85th Street.
Upper East Siders can also pair their cider with a carefully crafted Pork & Cider Pie from Jones Wood Foundry, just a few blocks from many Glenwood residencies, such as The Pavilion. From 5-10pm any night throughout cider week, pick from an impressive list of ciders, many of which are from our neighbors to the north in the Hudson Valley!
Luxury Apartments at The CambridgeThe Cambridge offers luxurious one, two, and three bedroom apartments. Book a tour today!
For Cider And Cheese Pairings
On Friday, November 9th from 6:30 to 8pm, join the folks at Murray’s Cheese for an evening of fine cider and cheese pairings. You’ll be joined by Kimberly and Matt from Metal House Cider, who will be pouring three of their small batch ciders at this “Meet the Maker” event. You can also indulge in Happy Hour cider flights and of course… cheese! This event is pay as you go, so no need to purchase a ticket in advance.
Murray’s Cheese is located in downtown Manhattan, making it a nice autumn stroll (about 30 minutes) or super quick Uber ride from any of the Downtown Glenwood residences. Tenants at Tribeca Bridge Tower can walk along the Hudson River Greenway for most of the distance, making it an even more scenic walk.
Lower East Side Cider Fest
Here’s an event that can’t be missed: the Lower East Side Cider Fest, a short cab or Uber ride from many Glenwood residences! $25 gains you access to an after-dark experience with 100+ cider tastings and specialty bites at the Essex Street Market, one of New York’s most historic spots! If you find something you like, purchase a glass or take some home with you. Take advantage of this opportunity, as the Essex Street Market will be demolished by this time next year, making this one of your last chances to experience its historic charm. Some of the cider makers in attendance include Angry Orchard, Brooklyn Cider House, and Hudson Valley Farmhouse Cider! Buy your tickets here.
