American Apples

No, I don't know much about cider, but I tried this one in Chicago and it was aiight.

J.K.’s Scrumpy Orchard Gate Gold Organic Hard Cider was difficult to pass up because of its name; Scrumpy.  Say it with me:

Sc - ruhh - mmmm - peeeee.  

It's like the alcoholic hard-ass one of the 7 dwarves.

It was served to me in one of those frosted glasses, which I know doesn't do anything for beer, so I'm going to assume it's doing just about the same for a cider, but nevertheless, the bevy itself was good.

Like a brisk autumn day at the apple orchard... It was a cooool apple juice. With a percentage. (6%).

There's a fun little tidbit of history to this Michigan born cider that I found on the site - During Prohibition, they sold a "Special Farm Cider" that people come from all over to get their hands on. Selling special "cider" during Prohibition? That's organic and respectable. It's downright orgectable.

Organic apple cider with vanilla, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Do ciders keep very well? Because this one was made in 2010, and I want one.

Food: It was sweet, so try it with some juicy Canadian back bacon.

  1. This beer sounds healthy because it's made of apple. I think it would be perfect to serve on holidays just like the candy apples that we make every Halloween.


What do you think?
