Cider is an alcoholic beverage created from fermented apple juice. Syracuse, in particular, is a hub for the beverage, with multiple breweries and orchards offering their spin on the classic. Lafayette’s Beak and Skiff Orchards features a tasting room for their wide variety of 1911 ciders, and Cazenovia’s Critz Farms has its own cider mill.
