Nestled into California’s Anderson Valley, the folks of Boonville Cider House are taking their hack at living the dream. Producing traditional English-style ciders under their parent name, they’ve released their Bite Hard Apple Cider in 16 ounce cans and it’s spread quickly onto shelves across the country. Pop a top and pour, releasing bright and tart green apple aromas with earth and skin in the back. Tannins approach the palate with a bracing hug, but let go gently as the full-bodied, juicy apple fruit floods in. Acid strikes in the finish to hoist up the wide cider and carry it into a clean, crisp finish, even with 6.9 percent alcohol.
