5 thoughts on “Ciders I’ve Tried

  1. Hey! I’m a colleague of Aaron’s at Boeing and wanted to share a couple of favorite ciders of mine. Square Mile: Hard Apple Cider (they’re going for a real unique name there =P) and also Blackthorn: Gold (I believe). I’ll let you form your own opinions rather than give you my review =)


    • Hi Melissa–thanks for checking out my blog!

      I had Square Mile Original awhile back but I think I literally got a bad bottle (apparently there was a recall around the same time for re-fermenting in the bottle), so I just picked up another one today actually. I’ve had Blackthorn (only one variety available in the U.S.). The “new” Strongbow is called “Gold” though. I’m not a fan of either of those, but Blackthorn is better than Strongbow. Crispin Browns Lane (tall green cans, at Fred Meyer or Total Wine) is pretty similar to Blackthorn and I like it better.

      Some of my favorite commercial ciders are Woodchuck Winter & Private Reserve Barrel Select, Spire Mountain Dark & Dry, & Crispin Browns Lane.

      Some of my favorite craft ciders are Reverend Nat’s Revival, Thistly Cross Whisky Cask (Traditional is pretty similar if you find that though), 2 Towns the Bad Apple, Eaglemount Quince, Alpenfire Spark, and Finnriver Lavender Black Currant.

      Good places around here to buy cider are Total Wine, Full Throttle Bottles (Georgetown), & Special Brews (Lynnwood). We’re sure lucky to live in the PNW where there is so much cider.

      Cider Says is also on Facebook:

      Maybe we’ll see you at CIder Summit? I have a feeling I’ll be there all day both days, as its only 5 hours each day and there are 160+ ciders to try. 🙂



      • Hey Kate!

        (sorry it took so long for me to get back to you)

        Thank you for sharing these cider names with me! I’ll have to try them 🙂

        Also very cool about Crispin Brown Lanes. I will have to try it for sure soon!

        I do plan on going to Cider Summit and I hope to see you there! Aaron tells me you are planning to spend the night down there. That’s a great idea! I’ll have to think about doing that as well =) would certainly be something new to do, and would encourage us to try some of the restaurants in that area that we’ve been meaning to try.

  2. Very informative, thank you!! I just tried a gose style cider (Graft Lost Tropic) and loved it. Was on vacation in NY. Now I’m trying to find something similar in TX.
