My second favorite thing about fall is the cider. I have been, and always will be, a big apple fan. Apples are awesome. They make good pie. They make good snacks. They especially make excellent beverages. My favorite thirst quencher is probably ice cold apple juice (followed by lime water) and hard apple cider, well, its pretty damn amazing. I've hinted at my love of cider a few times in this blog but I feel I should wax philosophical about my love of cider now, during the cream of the crop season. Hard cider is awesome. You should love hard cider. Its vegan, low in calories, all natural, and high in digestible sugars. It sounds like a health product but this shit is the furthest from anything you'd find gracing the shelves of your local health food store. No, friends, this is hard cider; apple juice for adults. As I type this, I'm drinking a decent pint of Woodchuck Fall cider, a wonderfully crisp and slightly sweet/sour cider (thanks to some Granny Smiths, I think) spiced with mulling spices and all around a tall glass of awesome. So, here here to the people that decided to first brew cider. May you rest easy knowing that, if no one else, I am carrying on your tradition of getting absolutely hammered off of apples. Prost.
