Founder and Head Cider Maker at GoodRoad, Brian Beauchemin said, “Although we make a mix of both traditional and modern ciders, I’m a traditionalist at heart which makes me extremely proud that our flagship Newtown Pippin won a gold medal and our New England Heritage won bronze. With that said, I’m thrilled that a wide variety of our ciders scored well in the competition. The craft cider market continues to grow in Charlotte and we’re excited to be a part of it!”
