The city market represents a place where chefs and home cooks come together to show and taste the best flavors in the region. Our brewing team captured this spirit in City Market Cider, our hard cider first released in 2017. Returning in 2019, this gluten-free local blend features juice from Fuji and Jonathan apples sourced directly from Sibley Orchard & Cider Mill in Sibley, Missouri. City Market Cider is fermented with our house English ale yeast strain resulting in a crisp, dry cider with just a touch of sweetness contributed by juice held back for blending.
Pouring a slightly hazy golden, City Market Cider offers bright aromas of sweet/tart apples that are answered by bold, juicy flavors with a soft acidity reminiscent of apple skin tartness. City Market Cider’s finish lingers, alternating between sweet and tart apple character that begs for another sip.
