three new blue toad hard cider flavors

Three New Flavors at Blue Toad Hard Cider

Our brewers have been quite busy the last few months creating several new flavors for our loyal customers. We love getting creative with new fruits, flavors and our existing hard ciders. There’s nothing better than starting with a tasty hard cider, adding a few ingredients, and making something great. We’d love to hear your feedback! Do you love these new flavors? Are there any flavors you’d like our brewers to try?

Apri-Peach Amber

Just like the name suggests, we used a delicious pairing of peaches and apricots and blended them with our award winning ROC Hard Amber. The peaches and apricots give the cider a fruitful note. Combined with a full-body and a smooth finish this cider is the perfect combination of sweet and tasty. Apri-Peach Amber is 6.6% ABV.

Hoppin’ Cran Grapple

We got really creative with this one. Very limited release for the Hoppin’ Cran Grapple. A combination of three local to New York apples, cranberries and white grapes. A very light flavor and a hit with our regulars. If you’re thinking of converting someone to a cider drinker, this flavor may be the perfect pick!

Winter Fest Cider

Just in time for the holidays, our first ever Winter Fest Cider release. This hard cider is a blend of New York State apples, fresh cranberries, hints of caramel (yes, we said caramel) and cinnamon spice. Try it warmed up on those chilly winter nights. At 6.7% ABV, Winter Fest Cider is sure to spice up your holiday parties.
