Some 50 hard cider makers from as far away as England and Kazakhstan toured Adams County Tuesday and sampled beverages from local cideries.

"I'm impressed by how fast the cider industry in this area seems to have to developed. It seems to be working really well here," said U.S. Association of Cider Makers board member Dan Wilson. The bus tour was part of the association's annual CiderCon gathering, which this year is taking place in Baltimore.
