Some of the best aromas of fall include the smell of freshly turned leaves, cool crisp, apple spice and of course cider! Now that it is starting to feel a little more like fall it’s time to retire the summer ales and dive into apple cider season. NYC will be hosting Cider Week taking place from October 20-29th.
