Meet Our Cider Makers
Ryan is the head cider maker on-site at the orchard in the Hudson Valley. Ryan’s New York roots run deep. He grew up in Upstate New York and began working on orchards around age six. He has always been interested in making cider and brewing beer, and experimented with both of these crafts during college and even after, during his brief stint in law school. After realizing that his passion was in making hard cider, Ryan decided to leave law school in favor of brewing school. Prior to joining the Angry Orchard team, Ryan racked up years of professional craft cider making experience, with a particular focus on cider barrel aging and varying fermentation processes.
