Erie County Fair Hard Cider

2022 Best In Show Hard Cider

A "Hop Cider" Takes The Top Honor

A Hop Cider created by Patrick McPartland of Kenmore, NY took top honors in the 2022 Cider Competition. A panel of judges and master judges evaluated the submissions according to nationally recognized USACM Cider Style Guidelines.

This was Patrick’s first time entering a cider competition. In fact, he was going to give up after the original batch didn’t turn out how he wanted, but his wife forced him to redo the batch. He chose this style as they are big fans of IPA Beers and like the style for cider. Patrick has begun working with the team at BlackBird Cider Works to professionally make his recipe that will be for sale during the Fair (while supplies last).
