The Cider Journal—A Two Month Report Card

TCJlogosmNow just over two months from its original launch, The Cider Journal has quickly become among the primary media outlets for cider aficionados, the cider trade, reviews of craft cider and general coverage of the craft cider revival. We recognize that the “Cider Media” in the United States is not substantial and citing the The Cider Journal as a prominent outlet doesn’t yet mean a great deal. Still it means a great deal to us and our plan is to continue to ramp up coverage of this growing industry for both those who love the beverage and those who make it. We hope some of you out there will help us continue to grow.

Since the original launch, The Cider Journal has

• Reviewed over 50 ciders from round the world
• Published more than 30 original articles• Issued 109 Tweets and earned 129 Twitter followers
* Seen shelf talkers have been issued with The Cider Journal Reviews
• Found numerous publications have covered The Cider Journal’s launch
