Stowe Cider - Tuned Up

Brew of the Month

Winter is a time for hearty dishes and thick layers. That's why this Stowe cider is a great choice for February. It is a lighter choice for those who need a break from the heavy stouts or stronger cocktails. It's crisp and light, flavorful without being overwhelming or sickly sweet. If you're not a fan of cranberry, don't worry! The sweet apple and orange balance our the bitterness of the cranberry. In all, this cinder is well balanced on the pallet. I found that it didn't weigh me down after finishing the can or leave be completely buzzed. It was a pleasant addition to a night by the fireplace.
