A "Modern Cider" Takes The Top Honor
A Modern Cider
created by Tim Hull of Tonawanda took top honors in the 2021 Cider Competition. A panel of judges and master judges evaluated the submissions according to nationally recognized USACM Cider Style Guidelines.
The Standard Styles for ciders lists Modern Ciders are made primarily from culinary/table apples (McIntosh, Golden Delicious, Jonagold, Granny Smith, Gala and Fuji). The flavor should be bright and refreshing. Tim started brewing about 5 years ago after sampling cider at a family Christmas party. He recommends having some fried dough with a glass of this cider.
