Born in the Bronx, Christian Rodriguez moved to New York’s Hudson Valley at a young age. While he has loved cider since his college days, Christian’s professional journey into cider began when a friend forwarded an ad for a part-time tour guide role at the Angry Orchard Cider House in Walden, NY. Within a month, he fell in love with cider, its industry, and its history. In his current role as Taproom Asst. Manager, Christian manages the full- and part-time taproom and retail staff at the Angry Orchard. He also works alongside members of the Cider House’s sister taprooms to seize training opportunities and ensure the highest quality education for employees and guests alike.
