Cidergeist Comes to Boston
There’s a new cider in town! Cincinnati-based Rhinegeist Brewery launched their cider in Boston this past week. Located in a bottling factory from 1895, the company was inspired by the pre-Prohibition thriving beer culture of Cincinnati. Now they are playing around with cider, which allows them to work with a lighter and drier flavor.
I had a chance to sample a few, and it is absolutely delicious. Neither variety is super-sweet, and the ‘dry hopped’ cider has an especially refreshing finish that reminded me of beer. The semi-dry version was reminiscent of the cider that can be found in Brittany, traditionally served with crepes. Both would be just perfect on a hot summer day! (And they were nice on a blustery cold day too!)
Keep an eye out for it around town over the next few weeks! If you want to track it down, you can reach out to Boston@Rhinegeist.com for help.
