We promise: sunny days are peeking through those April showers. Be prepared when the flowers bloom with some of your favorite canned ciders. Grab those hiking boots, ditch those clunky glass bottles and pick up a canned pack of cider — perfectly made for the outdoors this spring. Have no fear, there are no limitations on where you can bring along your canned bevvies — they’re great for a picnic in the park if you aren’t quite ready for the exercise. So here’s what’s fresh in cans, for easy lugging and refreshing sips.
Pacific Pineapple | 2 Towns Ciderhouse
Close your eyes and pretend the sound of the rain currently washing down the streets outside are the lapping waves on a cool Costa Rican beach. Or take some of 2 Towns finest on a hike along the river and transport yourself into a tropical paradise. This Pacific Pineapple will help those drizzly days fade away with fresh juicy pineapple flavorings.
Cidre Rosé | Nine Pin Cider
This is one of those ciders that would be perfect for sipping on a blanket under a tree blooming in pink blossoms. Crack open this cider rosé on your next warm day spent in the park. It’s fermented with all New York apples, plus the skins of New York-grown grapes, making it a full-bodied and complex blend.
Sangria | Portland Cider Co.
Forget spring, let’s jump straight to summer, because nothing says summer like a fruity Sangria. Cider mixed with delicious tropical fruit juices all smashed into a convenient can. There’s no better way to bask in the sun than with this new blend from the Oregon maker.
Apple Apricot | Uncle John’s Hard Cider
Instead of a sparkling water to rejuvenate, grab this carbonated cider while the sun is still shining. Uncle John’s spring and summer seasonal is a semi-sweet apricot, a showcase of all the longtime fruit grower is cultivating. It’s a sweeter take on their traditional apple with notes of refreshing citrus and fleshy orange fruits.
Lost Tropic | Graft Cider
This young cider company out of Newburgh, New York, is pushing out some bold flavors — and all conveniently available in portable cans. Keep your maps handy and maybe don’t count on this cider to navigate your adventure, but feel to get lost in the flavors of this citrusy sour cider.
Peach Cider | Jack’s Hard Cider
Made with apples out of Adam’s County, Pennsylvania, one of the nation’s apple capitals, is Jack’s Hard Cider. Try the refreshing Peach variety for that sunny stroll under blooming trees. Dream sweetly of springtime with apple and peach juices.
Ruby Red Grapefruit | Austin Eastciders
From the loud and proud Ruby Red grapefruit market of Texas, this cider is promoted as “Refreshingly Texan!” Tart, dry and invigorating — there’s nothing sweet about this cider, which makes it the perfect sip to quench your thirst at the end of a steep climb.
