Angry Orchard Brewery
The heart of Walden New York located near the beautiful Hudson Valley is home my favorite brewery; the Angry Orchard Brewery. Everyone who knows me knows how much I love a good crisp apple Angry Orchard cider. The past 3 years I have been visiting the brewery during the Fall to enjoy a good cider tasting day!
Throughout the years the development of the brewery has improved. In the first years you were only able to sample the cider (3 free samples) but never actually purchase alcohol! They have since changed that and now have a full bar with all the Angry Orchard flavors.
The treehouse is a must see! You can take a tour of the treehouse or just go see it yourself while tours aren’t taking place. There are swings, hay stacks, amazing views and Angry Orchard on tap!
You can also sign up for tours of the brewery which take place every half hour. With the tour you can get a guided tour of the brewery, tour the museum and learn the history of the cider, and it includes a flight of 3 ciders to sample and choose from! Make sure to get there early on the weekends to sign up for the tours because they book quick!
Even if you decide not to take the tour, the brewery makes it super easy for you to self guide your way through the brewery by following their videos and interactive signs!
The seating area is super cozy and has such a Fall feel to it! The outdoor patio is super homey, with a fireplace and live music.
Cider drinks are made typically from apples, more commonly referred to as “hard cider”. This drink is beyond a normal apple juice, and usually has a alcohol content of 2 – 8.5 % or higher.
If you’re hungry you can stop by the food trucks which serve sandwiches and pizza, or you can opt for some amazing Cinnamon cider donuts.
There is a gift shop which sells clothing, beer memorabilia, bottle openers and other souvenirs. They also sell growlers of Angry Orchard!
They are open year round!
Their hours are Wednesday Thursday and Sundays from 11am-6pm
Friday and Saturday 11am-8pm
