MOTOR CITY BREWING WORKS HARD CIDER Size: 750ml    
The cider pours a hazy straw color with little to no head, and low visible carbonation. The nose is of green apples, with a little bit of mustiness. Mouthfeel is surprisingly full with some small prickly bubbles adding dimension. The flavor is tart, refreshing, and extremely dry. If you are used to drinking commercial ciders like Woodpecker, Strongbow, or Woodchuck, this will be a totally different experience for you. There is little residual sugar left, making for an almost vinous dry white wine-like mineral character and mild acidity that resembles a Sauvignon Blanc more than fermented apple juice. The finish is where the crisp apple comes through, followed by a wisp of
alcohol.

J.K. SCRUMPY'S HARD CIDER Size: 750ml   ORGANIC

Orchard Gate Gold is fermented naturally in small artisanal batches from a proprietary blend of organic apples grown here at our Koan Family Orchards in Michigan. We have produced hard ciders here since the 1860s. This is the same traditional recipe that helped save our farm during the great depression. There will be slight variations from batch to batch, just as nature makes no two apples alike!

PSENKOVA BRAND CHERRY MEAD Size: 750ml   MICHIGAN MADE

Mead is the most ancient type of fermented beverage, thought to pre-date the cultivation of land. Psenkova Cherry Mead is technically a melomel, which means it is made from the typical mead ingredients of honey, water, and yeast, but has the addition of fruit. Melomels are one of the oldest ways to preserve fruit, allowing one to enjoy the taste of Michigan cherries long out of season. The Stelvin screwcap closer ensures that there is no chance of developing flaws, as there is with a cork. If cellared properly in a cool, dark place this mead will continue to mature for over a decade.

The result, Original Sin Hard Cider was released to immediate acclaim from sources as diverse as the The New York Times, Paper Magazine, and Market Watch.

MAGNERS CIDER ORIGINAL IRISH CIDER                                    aval in 6-pack or 19.2 oz bott


We love making cider, but we recon there is only one way to do it properly. Thats why were still taking inspiration from the historic method we used  when we started making cider back in 1935. Thats part of the Magners taste. so is the way we use over 17 varities of apples, waiting untill they drop before pressing and filtiring them in the traditional way. We take time to ferment the cider and even more time to mature, up to 2 years in fact, tasting it along the way. Sure there is a faster ways making cider, but then it would not be Magners!
