The Modern Emergence of a Historic Drink

Friday, June 8, 2018 at 10:00am to 11:30am

Mann Library, Room 160
Cornell University Mann Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

A ten-fold increase in hard cider production over the past decade has created a tremendous need for research into the entire supply chain, from growing specialized cider apples to fermentation to marketing. Dr. Gregory Peck (’09, PhD) will give an overview of the U.S. cider industry, how his cider research program and teaching are addressing industry needs, and how he is connecting historical texts from the collections at Cornell University Library to genetic fingerprinting in a single research project.  

This talk is presented in conjunction with the exhibit “Apples to Cider: An Old Industry Takes New Root,” on display in the Mann Library lobby. Following Dr. Peck’s presentation, a cider tasting will take place by the exhibit in the Mann lobby at 11:00 am
