Spotlight Series: Tilted Shed Cider
August 11, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Come meet, chat, and sip with a bunch of our favorite local winemakers and brewers this spring and summer. There are no tickets, no prix-fixe, and everything is poured by the glass and half-glass, so you can stop by for a drink and a snack, or go all out with a sampling of our small plates and pairings.
At its core, Tilted Shed Ciderworks is a hobby gone wild. The trouble started in 2007. We were living on a small farm in Northern New Mexico, trying our hand at organic market farming while freelancing and raising our baby. On our land was an old, gnarled, neglected apple orchard.
Being a bit of a mad scientist with a fermentation habit, Scott decided that our bumper crop of Jonathans, Goldens, and Red Delicious would make good drink.
So, with our infant son in one arm, Ellen lobbed apples into the hopper of our barrel press, while Scott cranked and pressed. Scott then put up the juice in the barn for a long, slow fermentation. A few months later, we were amazed with the results. Inspired, we began tasting regional ciders made from European and American cider apples.
An obsession began.
