Cider Maker’s Description

Lo-Ball is a fun loving right-hander known for his highball vibes and citrusy sluggability. At 4.8% and only 70 calories, Lo-Ball currently leads the American League in drinkability. Whether he's brought in as an opener or closer, Lo-Ball's versatility is strictly major league. Oh, and don't tell the commissioner, but this guy has been juicing since 2013.

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.
