Old drinks get new life in Maryland

New small cider and mead breweries are cropping up in Maryland, part of a larger resurgence in these drinks. The brewers are mixing traditional methods with modern sensibilities, like focusing on locally-grown ingredients.

The products are being embraced by bartenders as cocktail mixers as well as standalone drinks. 

The brewers use traditional breweing and aging techniques but also experiment with ingredients such as hot peppers and kiwis.
