SPRING 2018 MENU
AKA Jon Green, the apples in this 50 / $50 blend are sweet and aromatic with a hint of bitterness. The resulting cider flavors are crisp, clean, dry, then lightly carbonated to make it bright and bubbly. Dry enough to please our British patrons.
1. Power Island (5.2% ABV)
Jonathan, Rhode Island Greening
Barrel-aged, Spanish-style cider. With a tingle on your tongue, think sours, like Kombucha, Shrubs, or apple juice gone wild. The sharp, complex flavors and volatile aromas can develop when the cider transforms from fresh to sour, from sugary to alcoholic, from sweet to savory.
2. Grand Funk (5.2% ABV)
Variety of Local Leelanau Peninsula Farm Apples
A classic blend of Spy and Jonathon apples is fermented and aged in bourbon barrels for several months. This aging allows extended contact with yeast, resulting in a smooth mouth feel. Enjoy this off dry cider with whiskey and oak notes.
3. Barrel Rider (6.5% ABV)
Spy and Jonathon
An off-dry cider made with the classic cider apple, Northern Spy, and a hint of fresh ginger to counterbalance the sweetness of the apple. Ginger’s natural tingliness brightens the flavor with lemon notes. This cider won Best in Class in the 2018 GLINTCAP judging!!!
4. I Spy Ginger (5.5% ABV)
Northern Spy, Ida Red infused with Ginger Root
If you’re looking for something special, this cider is infused with culinary lavender producing a complex herbal aroma. Combine that with a rich blend of four different apple varieties and the final product results in a full-bodied off-dry cider. It won a silver medal in 2017.
5. Highlander (6.5% ABV)
McIntosh, Rhode Island Greening, Northern Spy, Jonathan, infused with Lavender
Naturally sweet, crisp, and appley; it always tastes like a beautiful day in Northern Michigan!
6. Smitten (4.5% ABV)
Northern Spy, Ida Red Swiss Gourmet, Jonathan, Rhode Island Greening, Yellow Delicious - Finished with Winesap and Zestar Apples
A blend of Wild Apples, Macintosh Northern Spy with Balaton and Montmorency Cherries, AKA Don Cherry, this cider is a robust blend of handpicked wild apples and a hint of cherry that delivers a balanced sweet-tart flavor. It received a bronze medal in the 2017 GLINTCAP judging.
7. Cherry Fest! (5.7% ABV)
Wild Apples, McIntosh, & Northern Spy with Balaton & Montmorency Cherries
8. Honey Pie (6.9% ABV)
A robust flavored cyser-like cider made in the farmhouse tradition. Fermented with local honey, fresh pressed apples, raisins, and a hint of pie spice; it is a rich amber color. The taste is smooth and sweet. At almost seven percent alcohol, watch out; it will sting you.
