Apple Cider is an essential autumn drink, especially if you leave in New England. And, what better place to get apple cider than a cider mill.
One of the most famous ones in the state is Hogan’s Cider Mill. According to the website, Hogan’s Cider Mill was established in 1912. The mill has a tap room on the top floor and the bottom floor has a little shop where you can purchase crafts, baked goods, jarred goods, and of course, cider.
The Cider Mill is a great place for gathering during the fall time. The property has over 10 acres, and has an area for you to sip on your cider outside. They also have cornhole, and has all of the autumn vibes.
The Indoor Tap room is on the top floor and where you go to purchase drinks. Their menu is very simple and fall themed. They have a ton of hard ciders to choose from, and you can purchase sweet cider for those under 21. Furthermore, you can also purchase a flight of four ciders — but this is only available on weekends.
Now, let’s talk about some of their speciality drinks. The first is the Crazy Caramel Apple Shot, which is a blend of hard cider, caramel syrup and a “splash of sweet cider.” The other drink, Hogan’s Drunken Donut, is the most famous. It is a hard cider that has an apple cider donut and whipped cream in it. Yeah, you heard me. It has apple cider donuts as well.
I had the drunken donut when I went up with my friends. And, let me first say that it was the messiest and the yummiest drink that I could have. The best way that I could describe it is that it’s like fall in a cup. The donut was covered with brown sugar, and you bit into a fluffy mixture of apple, and made the ultimate pairing with crisp cider.
Overall, I highly recommend check them out if you get the chance. While it is a drive, the drive is picturesque and definitely worth it.
