Lake George, NY – The Adirondack Pub & Brewery has made a name for itself over the past 18 years by producing a wide variety of Ales and Lagers with an emphasis on drinkability. As founder and owner John Carr puts it in the company’s mission statement, he wants his beer to be, “drinkable on a hot, summer day on Lake George.”
This May, Adirondack is adding another product to its portfolio that already includes classic Pub fare, non-alcoholic soda, and of course, craft beer. The Lake George Cider Project, a 5.8% ABV craft cider will makes its debut at their annual Coming out of Hibernation Party on Wednesday, May 10th at the Adirondack Brewery in Lake George.
Adirondack’s Cider Project was years in the making. John Carr’s wife, Cindy is allergic to Gluten, and therefore hasn’t been able to enjoy any of the beer produced by the brewery. “It’s a bit of a bummer to put all this hard work into something and not be able to have your wife experience it. That combined with the large number of requests from customers to produce a Gluten-Free beverage inspired us to undertake the cider venture”, says Carr.
With the brewery working at capacity and a soon-to-open distillery in the works, Carr looked for outside veteran assistance on the cider. “We worked very closely with Beak & Skiff Apple Farms in Lafayette, NY (Producers of 1911 hard cider) to develop a recipe that met our specific tastes and standards. With their experience and our lab capabilities here in Lake George, we were able to really dial in the desired taste for our cider. It is produced from 100% NYS McIntosh, Spygold, Gala, and Empire apples. We were aiming for a dryer cider, so we fermented it in stainless with Chardonnay yeast. I’m very pleased with the result and am excited for people to finally get to try it!”
