Ciders for A Sizzling Summer

Beer / June 23, 2016 / No Comments.

While children enjoy their hot apple ciders on crisp fall days, adults have ciders they enjoy on hot summer days. What’s the difference? We’re glad you asked. While both beverages are composed of crushed fruits, ordinarily the apple, hard cider is fermented so it is carbonated and alcoholic (the best aspect). Ciders vary from taste to color, and we’ve found a few standouts that you’ll regret not trying this summer.

Cider with a Little Hop(s)

Cider / April 23, 2015 / No Comments.

Sipping a hard apple cider on a beautiful, sunny spring day is one of our favorite activities, however for some, the bubbly beverage is often found to be too sweet. Whether you drink cider out of preference or have a gluten allergy, there is much more out there than the well-known brands on the sweeter side. If you prefer a sharper bite to your cider, look out for a dry, hops-infused cider. The hops gives the cider a sharper, bitterer twist creating a closer experience to the traditional beer.

We’re not the type of people who need a reason to drink. If we’re breathing that’s reason enough. But for those who need more, here you go:

1. Hummus: Sabra recalled a bunch of their hummus for possible listeria contamination. It’s as good an excuse as any to jump off the healthy-eating bandwagon and get back on that Cheetos grind.

Our footprints are notorious for following us this season with tracks of mud. Although it may be a bit of a drag, the melting season gives way to some bright colors after months of winter hibernation. So, while we utilize our umbrellas let’s hold out in anticipation for some May blooms. In the meantime, while we listen to the pitter-patter of a rainy day against the window, jump in puddle or two while singing in the rain, and enjoy these delicious beverages!

Earlier this month the team over at Redd’s decided to make the statement that cider is not simply for the fall season with the release of 2 new flavors, Redd’s Green Apple Ale and Redd’s Wicked Mango. These flavors came about just in time for the warmer weather, and we were lucky enough to get our hands on both flavors for a little taste test. Let’s just say our team has discovered their new go-to beach/pool-side cider.

Happy National Johnny Appleseed Day

Johnny Appleseed, the legendary folktale character who walked the earth in his bare feet, is commemorated today! We all know the story of the pioneer who sowed apple seeds with a tin cooking pot during his journey throughout the mid-west, but what the folktale did not explain is that Johnny intentionally sewed those seeds to produce hard cider back in the late seventeen hundreds. So cheers to a brilliant man with a plan, he has created quite “the buzz.”
