Please join us at Windsor Historical Society on Friday, December 7, 2018 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. for a fascinating cider sampling event with a little history grafted in. Did you know that the first apple trees in America outside of crabapples were planted by 17th century settlers who brought seeds and grafting wood with them from Europe? Or that apples proved easier than barley or hops in New England, one reason that cider rivalled beer as a popular colonial era beverage? By the mid-1700s, New England was producing over 300,000 gallons of hard cider a year, and the average Massachusetts resident drank 35 gallons of cider yearly. Learn more about Johnny Appleseed, applejack, and Henry Wolcott’s early 17th century apple orchard right here in Windsor from Society Education and Outreach Coordinator John Mooney and Librarian/Archivist Michelle Tom as you sample some of our area’s delicious apple based brews. Hard ciders and hot mulled sweet cider will be served with salty snacks. The cost for this over-21-only program is $15, and $14 for WHS members. For more information, call 860-688-3813 or visit windsorhistoricalsociety.org, where you can now make online program reservations and prepayments.
