Have you tried the 101 Ciders yet? They're made in your neck if the woods and are delicious. Spanish-style Cidre.

Nope.  Label looks cheesy so haven't embarked.

I'll go by the tasting room one of these days.  Not super close...but hey, nothing in LA is.

From the pics you post nothing looks close . . .

in your house.

You don't have to rely on pictures, there was a whole TV show shot there.

Really?  Link?

It was some HGTV episode, don't even remember which show it was.

http://www.hgtv.com/shows/house-hunters-renovation/episodes/a-couple-is-looking-for-a-bigger-house-to-put-their-own-stamp-on
Just saw your episode finally, found it on Netflix, we don't get HGTV.
Nice place, that green marble is super cool :thumbup: did you put the Koi pond in?

Ha, yeah its in the front to the left of the stairs up.  Seems to be the question everyone asks. I didn't finish the koi pond before we finished shooting and they damn well knew they weren't coming back for a follow up shoot. 

I battled a heron who was trying to get my fish yesterday.  Clearly I need to get a pellet gun with more PSI.  CO2 won't cut it, need pump action.  Damn those herons are relentless.  First one I've had and he wasn't taking no for an answer.
Whoa, that's crazy. Maybe some kind of netting would work?

Has anyone (in chicago probably) seen Broken Nose Ciders?  There are 2 posted on Ratebeer but no reviews so I'm wondering if they are not out yet, or just on tap at bergyle.

Yeah, the cranberry one Bog City was pretty good. Only on tap at Begyle afaik, but I bet that Northman place gets kegs.

Been drinking more and more cider out here.   I like the taste, I still get a buzz but I don't get that full feeling after drinking a few.

Rev Nats is our go-to.

2015 Eric Bordelet Sidre Brut Pays d'Auge Cider.  Good and has the funky leathery, somewhat band-aidy phenomlic taste I like but only just a bit.  Quite easy to drink and smells concentrated.  Thin body, off dry but leaves no finish.

I think the guy is more known for calvados.  Overall solid but his apple cider is hard to find.  Lots of pear cider available.

First Flora from Angry Orchard. Spontaneously fermented aged in Calvados barrels.

It was at FOBAB and bottles just started coming around.  I'm a fan.

Cool, I didn't know this line existed.

BL had some funky ones yesterday, one from Trabanco and a French one from Maison Grandouet.

They had 3 of those at FOBAB this year and I enjoyed 2 of them quite a bit. Should be interesting to see how their program evolves over time.

An Ancient Spanish Style Of Cider Takes Root In America

The funk can be off-putting but this is the worst thing ever:

"ANXO's sidra was made in large part from bitter crabapples harvested along D.C.'s sidewalks." Who knows what touched those apples?  Maybe even a lobbyist.

It's always been around, I guess there are more cideries now, which is true of breweries, meaderies, distilleries, wineries, other-ies.

I think the trend zeitgeist has moved on to "hard seltzer" now.

And who else would have their finger right up in the pulse besides Josh Noel.

I had my coors light drinking wife on the more malty craft beer train until she had to go gluten free for medical reasons several years ago. The cider explosion has been awesome for her, but she's definitely enjoying the emergence of white claws and the like. They mostly taste like garbage to me, but most of the lime versions are pretty refreshing.

Pretty sure that's one of the new hard seltzers. My wife's been drinking them, 100 calories and 1-2 carbs per can.

Angry Orchard is 30g of carbs per bottle, so probably not.  Being made from fruit juice would make low carb impossible.

EDIT:  I guess wine is low carb :shrug:  I'd think residual sugars are the key, so a dry cider should be lower in carbs.

That is what is important and many wines websites will state the grams per liter of the product especially if it supposed to be sweet.  For non fortified/oxidized wine wine a simple way to tell is the alcohol level.  Very generally a sweeter wine will be lower in alcohol than a dry one.

Sparkling wine is the lowest in carbs for wine. I drink a lot of Costco prosecco at home. Dry reds are next best for wine. Then dry rose and dry white.

Hard liquor is fine but you have to watch your calories.

As howard said, cider is usually higher in carbs in my experience.

Had a couple of great ciders yesterday, Misbeehavin' Meads No Roblemo, a dry-hopped pineapple cider, and Foiken IPC, an "india pale cider" from Eris Brewing. The pineapple cider won crowd favorite.

Had a locally canned wild cider last night, Happy Camper by Old Westminister Winery. Very Basque-like and great price/packaging ($2.50 for 12oz can). I think this can be my go to cider around here.

Nice to have something local and affordable like that. IIRC, the green corked Basque bottles used to be dirt cheap, under $10/750ml.

Had a locally canned wild cider last night, Happy Camper by Old Westminister Winery. Very Basque-like and great price/packaging ($2.50 for 12oz can). I think this can be my go to cider around here.
:excited:
Nice to have something local and affordable like that. IIRC, the green corked Basque bottles used to be dirt cheap, under $10/750ml.
Yes, very affordable but not as affordable as this one (per ounce). :)

I haven't too many English ciders but of all the countries that produce enough of them for me to try France is the best by far.  I had one that was a few years old and super funky.  A lot of brett; farmy and medicinal.  Maybe some would say fecal but I don't think it was quite there.  Off dry with a good amount of acidity and bubbles.

Never seen that one and I rarely pass up a French cider. I used to like the French ones the most until Basque ciders started to be imported.

In all seriousness, that was an awesome cider. Tons of Brett funk but well balanced.
