Cider is the quintessential autumn beverage. It celebrates the harvest and pairs beautifully with all types of food. That’s why we’re helping America pick cider for Thanksgiving dinner.

 When America was founded, cider was a more common drink than water. Founding father John Adams is reported to have drank a tankard of cider each day. Thomas Jefferson cultivated cider apples in his Monticello orchard. Cider was served to Revolutionary troops and played a key role in the early colonial economy.

But cider isn’t history—we’re in the middle of America’s modern cider boom. Join the new cider revolution and pick cider for Thanksgiving this year!

Across the U.S. cider makers are helping you find a cider that’s a perfect match for your holiday table. With special events in all corners of the nation, you can easily find a cider that you love.
