 h1. Dear readers,
 Thanksgiving dinner, in my book, has always been about the traditional foods — turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberries — and I'm usually reticent to change up the menu. But this year, inspired by Kerry Newberry, I welcomed a new item to the Thanksgiving table: hard apple cider. We had two bottles: Wandering Aengus's Bloom and 2 Towns' Incider. Both were sensational.

 In her post about the cider renaissance that's underway, Kerry profiled four cider-makers from Washington, Vermont, Virginia, and Oregon. The results of their handiwork is tasty and inspired; to me, the brews taste like they came from ancient tradition yet were new and exciting: a delicious paradox in a glass.
