Ciders Featured in the Autumn Cider Festival

The Hive Stinger

The Hive Winery in Layton, Utah, sources cider apples from across the state. The signature 'Stinger' cider has golden apple freshness with a slightly off-dry richness on the palate, leaving a pleasant, long-lasting finish. The Stinger will be served at Oasis Cafe.



The Hive Mint Stinger

The 'Mint Stinger' is infused with fresh mint leaves, leaving a cool, refreshing, and clean spearmint flavor. The Mint Stinger will be served at Under Current Bar and Current Fish & Oyster.




Stella Artois Cidre

Stella Artois Cidre is blended with a balance of 50% handpicked apples, showing red apple and finishing with a stone fruit peach-apricot-like richness. It will be served at Kyoto, Oasis Cafe, Caffe Niche, and Cafe Trio. 



Angry Orchard Apple Ginger

Angry Orchard's 'Apple Ginger' Cider shows an apple and ginger nose with a nice bite of ginger on the palate, finishing with sweeter apple flavors. It will be served at Kyoto and Cafe Trio.




Samuel Smith Organic Cider

Samuel Smith's Organic Cider has a bouquet of fresh apples with a soft floral note, a light body, a crisp clean flavor, and a dry finish. 




Anthem Hops Cider

Anthem 'Hops' Cider uses dry-hopped Oregon Cascade hops for a lager-like cider with citrus and floral aromas and a slight bitterness on the finish. It will be served at Under Current Bar. 




Tieton Apricot Cider

Tieton 'Apricot' Cider sources fruit from Yakima Vally and across Washington, infusing the tartness of apricot to play off the apple notes. 


Wandering Aengus Bloom Cider

Wandering Aengus 'Bloom' Cider emphasizes all heirloom cider apples for a complex flavor. It's an authentic medium-sweet cider that offers an aromatic apple nose and bright clean finish. You can try it at Current Fish & Oyster, Cafe Trio, Fresco, or Caffe Niche.



Whether you're a well-versed cider lover or you have no idea what noses and notes have to do with cider, this festival will open you up to the wonderful world of fermented fruit. Stop by any of the participating restaurants throughout the month of October for a delicious pairing.
