After standing in the shadow of craft beer, hard cider is enjoying a much overdue renaissance. Craft Cider will uncover this unique beverage's history, the current state of cider in the marketplace, and recommend commercial ciders that represent the best in each style. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned brewer, Craft Cider will be the go-to book for all skill levels to learn new brewing techniques, explore recipes, and learn about the expansive history of this age-old drink.
