    We welcome Thor’s Cider to the tasting bar this Saturday for the 1st time Branded after Thor Aamodt, the great-grandfather and founder of Aamodt’s Apple Farm. Thor’s Hard Cider is authentic. Most mass-market hard ciders begin with preserved apple juice concentrate. Thor’s is made from Minnesota Honeycrisp mixed with tart Haralson and a few other varieties into the press. It’s full-strength, locally-grown apples with no preservatives. The entire process happens at our Stillwater, MN orchard. The apples are grown, harvested, pressed and brewed at Aamodt’s Apple Farm.

    No one has a problem determining which wines they “like” or “don’t like.” But have you ever wondered why a wine tastes like it does—or just wish you could understand what the geeky dudes in "Somm" are talking about? (“Fresh cut garden hose?” Really?) We’ll explore what goes into tasting and the science behind it. We’ll also dig into wine’s most important components like acidity, tannins, sugar, and alcohol—along with a few tips and tricks to train your palate to become a better taster.
