Sweetness: Semi-Sweet

ABV: 5.40%

Cider Maker’s Description

The Pacific Northwest grows more apples than anywhere else in the country, co we make hard cider here. Our ciderworkers use only Cascadia-grown whole apples, never juice from concentrate.

Maria Ann "Granny" Smith planted her apple tree in 1868. We discovered that her namesake, when crafted with English ale yeast, makes a damn fine cider.

The next time you're in Portland, Oregon, stop by for a pint. Our ciderworks will be glad to share one with you.

Matthew favors dry hard ciders with body and leans towards traditional English styles, and he’s also developed a serious appreciation for hopped ciders and creative flavor infused ciders. Though he prefers sweets in solid forms, he does enjoy semi-sweet to sweet ciders responsibly when the mood strikes. Learn more about our Chief Cider Curator here.
