Cider. Isn’t. Beer. (an intro)

“Oh cider! Like beer? But with apples?”

Wrong.

I’ve heard this phrase hundreds of times at work, at festivals, even when I’m boppin’ from bar to bar talking about work. And every time I explain why cider is NOT like beer, I try very hard not to sound frustrated by something that is so simple to me. It was only a year and a half ago I was int he same boat, I thought Redd’s Apple Ale was a cider too.

So, I explain simply “You know how wine is made with grapes? Replace the grapes with apples and that is cider.”

What I hope with this site is to spread the knowledge of cider and how it is one of the best beverages to consume and is American as apple pie. I hope to find the best ciders and learn everything about the apples that make them. There is so much to learn and anything I learn, I’ll share.
