About the producer: "Lassen Traditional Cider was founded by Ben Nielsen. Ben's love of fermentation began when he started brewing beer in college. After brewing extensively for his adult life, around 2005 he began delving into cider in an effort to use the free fruit from a neighbor's backyard apples trees in Corvallis, OR. After a couple years, this morphed into an annual cider pressing party where all his friends would bring apples to press or just help out. So of course, the neighbor's apples weren't enough after a while. Unused trees in yards all over town, unseen apple trees in the ditch on the side of a country road, and long forgotten pioneer orchards were all sought out and utilized...Finding Nick Botner's orchard in Yoncalla, OR, with over 4,000 apple varieties, was a godsend, allowing Ben to experiment with single varietal ciders made from unusual apples, from European bittersharps and bittersweets to an array of American heirlooms. Around 2012, when the cider craze was beginning to kick into high gear and Ben's satisfaction with his engineering job was waning in the opposite direction, he began to give more thought to starting his own cidery. A timely layoff in 2014 pushed him further in that direction."
