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.

Oak barrels like these are used to age ciders

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.

Our 4 ciders. Pear port, dry saison cider, pear cider and sparkling perry.
