He said Sam Adams is wanting to refine that label....

Glad to see Ice Man and Straw Man are good. I will have to keep an eye out for them.
I love the artwork on all of the Angry Orchard brands. Their website is pretty cool too.

As in the picture label? It's the reason I bought that one over the strawman one, my beard was envious of his😄

Well I just called around, and I can't get Iceman or Strawman anywhere locally yet. One place said it will be about a month.

Production is pretty small in terms of national distribution. BBC approached us to do the bottling on contract, I forget exactly how much but it was in the neighborhood of 30,000 gallons. From what I've seen, they're targeting selective markets to test the interest. Frankly, I'm surprised they missed the ROC area. Lots of cider drinkers in your neck of the woods.

Not a big fan of any of the A.O. ciders. I like the traditional europe ciders like magners and Strongbow. Doc's from NY is my fav. But I really like my own homemade dry cider.

Definitly a growing distinction between sweet and dry ciders. Would you call them American vs English in terms of style?

I'm wet behind the ears but I would...
Seems the English ciders don't have much sugar in them and they're mostly fermented out really dry... I don't lump Magner's in there Because it's pretty sweet and I think it's from Ireland...

The American ciders I think were originally meant to appeal to ladies while men were drinking beer, Very very sweet.

It seems now that ciders, the European ciders, are becoming more popular, so you're seeing more ciders in the US that are dry and less sweet; MANS CIDER... Lol

I really wasn't either because the first and only ciders of their is that I tried where the angry orchard crisp apple... It's way sweeter than the one I just recently had; their traditional dry

And just before it I had that Stroman's and that was good... A whole different animal then the sweet one in the smaller bottle.

angry orchard is pretty good but if I'm buying cider I am a big fan of crispin.
