Then at 7:00 pm, put your cider thinking caps on:

Cornell University extension associate, Chris Gerling and cider maker Autumn Stoscheck have planned an evening of engaging conversation and perhaps some controversy. We will discuss the fermentation process vs the brewing process from ingredients through stabilization.  Tastings along the way will illustrate similarities and differences between cider, wine, and beer. Together we will answer the question: Does hard cider belong in the same category as beer?
