WALDEN, N.Y. — Last Fall, Hudson Valley residents had the opportunity to be a part of Angry Orchard history by helping pick the first harvest of the Orchard’s cider apple trees as part of Angry Orchard’s Community Harvest Day. Hudson Valley locals alongside the Orchard crew covered the 60-acre Orchard to select bittersweet and bittersharp apple varietals that would be used in the first edition of this locally inspired cider that celebrates people and place.
Since Angry Orchard took root at their Albany Post Road location nearly five years ago, the team has been working on transitioning the orchard trees from culinary apples to cider apples. The Albany Post cider is the first release that uses apples solely grown on-site. Several years in the making, this new cider apple crop proved fruitful for all.
The greater Hudson Valley community can now enjoy Albany Post. The cider is now available for sales in 750ml bottles exclusively at the Cider House in Walden, New York.
