Updates from the field:

Here at Wayside Cider we are very aware that our community has made us the business we are today, with friends and family showing us abundant love and patronage through every changing season. In light of the rising concerns regarding the Covid-19 virus we are trying to calmly and responsibly balance what is best for both the business and this community. To that end, our kitchen will be closed until further notice, and instead of having a traditional bar we will be operating as a bottle shop on Fridays and Saturdays from noon to six. We will have our ciders and various packaged beer for sale on https://wayside-cider.square.site/ through which these items may be ordered for pick-up upon arrival.

From the website of Wayside Cider: Alex Wilson & Irene Hussey started Wayside Cider in 2014 after meeting at the Catskill Amateur Cider Making Contest at Table On Ten - Irene won the competition. Alex came second, but maintains to this day he "was robbed."

Forged in a shared love of the wild and abandoned homestead apple trees, the pair made 3500 bottles of methode champenoise, unfiltered mountain cider in their first year of production - which sold out within 3 months. Soon outgrowing their small cidery (Irene’s parent's garage) they were fortunate to find a large old barn in the center of the historic Catskill town of Andes NY - which with some elbow grease and a lot of help from their friends, became the new home of Wayside Cider & Tap Room.
