The Story of Downeast Cider:
Massachusetts, 1991: It started with a dream, or rather...two dreams. Two young brothers, Ross and Matt Brockman, awoke at the exact moment. Both had experienced similar visions. “Unfiltered Craft Cider!”, they both exclaimed, in unison. They were four years old and seven years old, respectively. Twenty years later, the dream became reality. After years of twists and turns, Downeast was born in a dorm room at Bates College. Years of recipe tweaking on an old orchard in Maine led them to unfiltered Original Blend in 2011. We ran this by Ross and Matt, who both noted a factual inaccuracy, but we trust the gut around here. ”Speak truth to power” they say.
