Summertime calls for berry picking season! But if you want to get out of the sweltering heat, you can drop those fruit baskets and head to the cider cases to enjoy all those berry seasonals. Here are some berry-infused ciders perfect for your next picnic in the park.
Loganberry | Bauman’s Cider Co.
Sometimes a fruity sip may elicit an unwanted pucker, but this loganberry-infused cider has the perfect dose of subtle sweetness, making for an easy summer sipper. Bauman’s Cider takes inspiration straight from its family-run farm, and loganberries had the team reminiscing on the first picks of the season. The cider has a soft pink hue, shining hints at the berry’s dark red natural color.
The Scout: Hopped Marion Berry | Incline Cider
Sticking to the Northwest, this Washington-born cider company added berries bred straight out of the Oregon Willamette Valley: marionberries. This bold cousin of blackberry adds sweet fruitiness that gently balances with the crisp apple and bitter hops of the cider. As one of the Incline flagships, you’ll be sure to find these summer scents long after the berry patches are picked dry.
Wild Berry | Downeast Cider
Can’t decide on just one fruit? For your mixed berry cider, we have Wild Berry from the Downeast’s limited edition lineup. This cider totes your classic berry pickings– blackberries, blueberries and raspberries! The Boston-based cider company might not see many wild patches in their city streets, but this cider was inspired by a trip to a wild untamed island in Maine.
Cranberry | Tieton Cider Works
Cranberries are typically harvested in the fall, and many cideries save their cranberries for their winter seasonals. But Tieton went bold and mixed this typically Christmas-y berry with bright summer fruits for a fresh blend. Sweet, tart and full of flavor from this cheery red cider.
Everyday Berry | Cider Riot!
Looking for a go-to berry cider? Cider Riot! added fresh fruit to its classic Everyday cider to put a spin in your classic cider. Crisp apples, raspberries and blackberries picked straight out of Cascadia orchards and berry patches. All your favorite Northwest summer picks canned up and available year-round.
Huckleberry | Two Rivers Cider
Huckleberry isn’t a flavor you’d typically expect to find written on the back of a can, but Two Rivers added this rare berry to its lineup with pride. Blueberry’s bitter relative adds a unique, sweet and floral aroma to the apple base. And if you’re looking for more berries from Two Rivers, Strawberry Jam, is a one of the core sips and a crowd favorite in the taproom.
