gingerbread cider

New Flavor Alert – Gingerbread Cider

Gingerbread is back! And just in time for the holidays. We love this time of year just as much as you do and there’s nothing better than sitting by the fire, cozied up with your loved ones, sipping on a drink that gives you that little extra spirit of the holidays. Gingerbread cider is the Holiday Season in a glass – the flavors of vanilla and molasses smell like the comfort of your home and taste like the days of making houses out of cookies in your grandparent’s kitchen.

Our cider-makers have felt inspired by the holiday season and created a gingerbread-flavored cider perfect for your holiday parties! At 6.5% ABV, this cider has notes of molasses, vanilla and honey with a delicious butternut finish. This will be available in our Henrietta Tasting room for a limited time only so be sure to grab it before it’s gone!

Like the WinterFest, Gingerbread is a perfect option to warm up and enjoy hot! Include a rim of cinnamon and sugar and you’ve got yourself a tasty Hot Toadie!

Cheers!

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.
