Cider – Another craze on the market, ciders are typically a lower ABV drink using fermented apple juice as the main ingredient. Although ciders can be really sweet at times, most ciders are more on the semi-sweet side. The sugar addition to the fermentation process is where the alcohol comes from. Most ciders range from 2%-7% ABV, making these very drinkable. Think of them as a glorified, carbonated, semi-sweet apple juice.

Recommendations (by Brewery):
Good – Angry Orchard, Woodchuck
Better – Blake’s Hard Cider Company, Thistly Cross Cider
Best – Ciderboys Hard Cider
