A Quiet Corner by the Sea
On the edge of the Pacific Ocean, the small town of Pacific Grove has the perfect climate for producing and aging premium ciders, perry and our unique Brandipera. Like many businesses in Pacific Grove, we are a small enterprise serving the local community, selling our products to local stores and restaurants. For us, a great job perk is that lunch break is just a seven minute walk to the rolling waves of Monterey Bay's Asilomar beach where we can watch pelicans glide above the water.
CIDER (Hard Cider)
The term "cider" is used all over the world to describe an alcoholic beverage. In America, the term evolved to "hard cider" due to Prohibition (long story). With the increasing popularity of hard cider, you will see both terms used to describe this satisfying drink. Ours are generally 6-7% alcohol and made in small batches in the same fashion as our ancestors.
PERRY (Pear Cider)
Produced by the fermentation of pear juice, this delicious beverage was a special treat for our pioneer ancestors and well-known in America. Alas, Prohibition in the 1920's would destroy the industry. Now, a few dedicated producers are working to bring it back. Slightly sweet and lower in alcohol than cider, we offer both a draft and a sparkling style.
BRANDIPERA (Pear Port)
If you enjoy Port wine, you may enjoy our Brandipera® (a "pear port"). Created in the same manner as Port (a combination of sweet wine and brandy), we use lightly fermented perry instead of wine and blend in our pear brandy to fashion a delightful aperitif. Aged in French oak barrels, it finishes with notes of vanilla, oak and caramel. This luscious drink is 16.9% alcohol.
