Finally! I have reviewed my batch of ciders from the epic snow day of 2018! I’ve been a little sick so I’ve gathered all my notes from the past few weeks to crank out some reviews while I’m recovering. This flu is no joke! A few breweries have dabbled into the cider world and produced […]Read More Key Lime Caribé Cider by Florida Beer Co.
Have any of you noticed the surge of pineapple in the craft brewing world? Not just cider but beer also? I just reviewed a pineapple cider by Slim Pickens and I have a pineapple cider from Ace in the pipeline. Pineapple is a great flavor, most people enjoy it to the point they put it […]Read More Pineapple Caribé Cider by Florida Beer Co.
Has anyone else noticed the surge of pineapple ciders the past year or so? It’s a topic that comes up at the cidery at least once a quarter. It seems that Ace is the pioneer of pineapple these days, but there a few others that have more than a straight up “in your face” pineapple […]Read More Ananas by Slim Pickens

Continuing the Spanish cider train with Poma Áurea by Sidra Trabanco out of Lavandera, Gijón, Asturias, Spain. Asturias is the leader in cider (or sidra) production in Spain. It’s very similar to how Burgandy, France is held in the world of wine. Spanish cider is usually poured by an expert server known as an escanciador. The bottle is held […]Read More Poma Áurea by Sidra Trabanco

Personally, I’ve been working on getting settled in my house, […]Read More Cold Day in Hops by Mercier
