Hard cider is something of a comeback kid. After years of flying under the radar, it has made a huge resurgence across the United States as drinkers are rediscovering all the qualities that made it a favorite amongst our founding fathers over two centuries ago. Leading the cider revolution is Angry Orchard, a cidery that makes unique and innovative craft ciders using dozens of styles of apples and ingredients like ginger, wildflower honey, and hops. The cider makers at Angry Orchard constantly explore what cider can be from branch to bottle.
