It’s Hard Cider Season!


Labor Day is in the rearview, the kids are back to school, and the days have grown noticeably shorter. In other words, Summer 2014 is pretty much winding down. Bummer.

I know you’re going to miss the barbecues and fireworks, the lake swimming and vibrant, warming sunshine. I’m right there with you. But you know how I’m dealing with it? By remembering that Fall is Hard Cider Season, and what a beautiful season that is.

Let’s be real: hard apple cider is delicious. It’s sweet. It’s tart. It’s bubbly. It’s crisp. It’s refreshing. And it packs a kick just like beer. What’s not to love?

Sure, people drink hard cider all year long now. And that’s awesome. But come on. Everyone knows that Fall is all about apples, and thus, all about hard apple cider.

So, how are we celebrating? Well, we recently started carrying some pretty cool hard cider supplies like a series of homebrew hard cider pouches from Mangrove Jack’s. In fact, you might have seen my blog post from a few weeks back that focused on those bad boys.

But today, I wanted to present you with something else: the Libbey Perfect Hard Cider Assorted Glass Set!


This amazing set from Libbey (glass experts who can trace their corporate roots back to 1818 and the New England Glass Company) offers six distinct glasses that are specially designed to enhance your hard cider experience.

It doesn’t matter what kind of cider you prefer. Are you a Granny Smith guy who seeks out ciders that are tart, crisp, and bubbly?

It even has a Belgian style glass for dark and fruity McIntosh ciders and a footed cooler glass for dry, powerful ciders that go down smooth.


Really, if you love cider, it’s about time you started treating it with a bit more respect. We all know the importance that the right glassware can offer to your favorite adult beverage (looking at you beer, wine, and cocktails) and cider is no different.
