Bryan Barry, originally from Long Island, currently calls the Hudson Valley his home. His enthusiasm with collecting and learning about spirits ignited a deep interest in the stories and processes behind libations of all kinds, which he loves to share with friends and family. When he saw the opportunity to pursue a job at the Angry Orchard Cider House, this sparked his curiosity even more. Starting as a part-time tour guide in August 2021, Bryan has since progressed to the role of Tour Center Assistant Manager at Angry Orchard where he oversees and manages all tours & experiences for each and every guest, thoughtfully showcasing and educating folks on cider and the category as a whole and offering exceptional hospitality for all. Alongside his professional pursuits, Bryan is actively restoring an abandoned pear orchard at his residence, while simultaneously cultivating a diverse array of heirloom and bitter-sweet apple varieties to make cider at home as well.
