Looking for the perfect liquid pairing for your next outdoor adventure? Whether you have your summer camping plans lined up or not, these canned, sessionable ciders taste even better when enjoyed in the great outdoors.
Austin Eastciders | Rosé Dry Cider paired with Big Bend National Park
Nothing complements the rising, southern temperatures in Big Bend National Park better than a crisp and refreshing rosé cider. Austin Eastciders’ ode to the summer drink sips dry at a crushable 5% ABV. However, it’s not light on flavors of sweet cherry, black currant and rose petals. This fruit-forwarded, classic riff on rosé can easily stand up to a full Texas sky.
Virtue Cider | Mezzo Spritz paired with Huron-Manistee National Forest
What started as an experimentation of cider, sparkling water and orange bitters resulted in Mezzo Spritz. Virtue Cider’s spinoff on the classic Aperol spritz is, in fact, mezzo (meaning “half” in Italian) — it clocks in at 3.5% ABV and only 90 calories. These Italian-inspired cans are the perfect pairing for your next adventure in Michigan’s Huron-Manistee National Forest.
Shacksbury Cider | Shorts! paired with Groton State Forest
Quite possibly the most adorable cider on this list, Shorts! from Shacksbury Cider fills a stubby, 8-ounce can that’s packable, cooler-friendly and just plain fun to look at. Flavors of natural lemongrass extract and hibiscus infuse this 4.5% ABV hard-cider seltzer, making for easy-drinking on its own or topped in the next cider cocktail. We recommend pairing this one with majestic wilderness views found in Vermont’s scenic Groton State Forest.
Stem Ciders | A Salted Cucumber paired with Rocky Mountain National Park
Cucumber lovers, let’s commence and venture outside the boundaries of cider. In a unique collaboration with The Real Dill, Stem Ciders’ A Salted Cucumber is a blend of Pacific Northwest apples, cucumber and sea salt. Dry-hopped with Citra and Cascade, this hazy pour is likely more reminiscent of a gose than cider. But a rare cider of this style fits Colorado’s bold spirit, making it a perfect addition to your next excursion through Rocky Mountain National Park.
Golden State Cider | Mighty Dry paired with Joshua Tree National Park
Made from fresh-pressed apple juice and champagne yeast — Mighty Dry is an anytime, anywhere cider served in a 16-ounce can. Luscious apple aromatics are cut and balanced with a tart, thin finish. With no added sugar involved, Golden State Cider’s flagship is pleasingly bright and dry and ready to hit all unmatched, scenic views in California, like the ones found at Joshua Tree National Park.
