Crispin Cider Event at The Foundry, April 17

With the warmer weather approaching, it's time to start thinking about what you want to drink while sitting on a patio (maybe McCoy's?  How about at the Foundry?).  Stouts, barleywines, double IPAs, and porters are all great styles, but they can all be a bit much.  So, something lighter while sitting in the sun.  What about not getting a beer at all?  Why not get an increasingly popular beverage - cider!

If you haven't had a cider recently, or have been avoiding them because you associate them with other, malt-based hard ciders, you should take the time to try a well made cider.  Unlike beer, a cider generally doesn't use hops, and unlike some mass produced "hard ciders," they aren't based on malt liquor.  Instead, they're crafted from fruit juice, usually apple, and fermented with a yeast that gives it a nice depth of flavor.  And from 4-8 PM on April 17th, you'll have the chance to try four fantastic ciders from Crispin at The Foundry, including a few rare taps!

Crispin Original is their refreshing original cider.  Crisp, clean, and light, and very apple-forward.

The Bohemian is a new, limited offering, and different take on the cider - fermented with Pilsner yeast.  The Foundry is the only place in Missouri that will have this one!

Marvin is another limited release from Crispin.  This cider is fermented with stout yeast, and aged in oak barrels, with dark chocolate and cherry!

Finally, the last limited release cider is Wonderwall - a pear cider, aged in Zinfandel barrels.  This is another that you can't get anywhere else in Missouri.

I don't know about you, but these are all making me thirsty.  Come out on the 17th and try a flight of all four beers for only $9.  It's the perfect chance to catch up on what you've been missing by not drinking ciders, or to get a taste of a few ciders you can only get at The Foundry!  Hope to see you here next week.  Cheers!
