Ryan is the head cider maker at Angry Orchard, based in Walden, NY at our cider house. Ryan’s New York roots run deep. He grew up in Upstate New York and some of his first jobs involved working on orchards in his hometown. He has always been interested in agriculture and fermentation, both of which led him to pursue a career in cider making. Prior to joining the Angry Orchard team, Ryan racked up years of professional cider making experience, with a particular focus on cider barrel aging and varying fermentation processes. He currently serves as a board member to the United States Association of Cider Makers (USACM) and the Cider Institute of North America (CINA).
