It’s true, Craft Brewing Business‘s focus is set squarely on craft beer, but we’re human! Our eyes wander. It’s only natural to take a look at the other exciting developments in the wide beverage world. We’ve detailed the growing trend of craft spirits and even touched on the cider explosion (complete with our favorite apples-related reference). Now, homebrewers, those readers who are the commercial craft brewers of tomorrow, can try their hands at crafting a hard cider thanks to Northern Brewer’s brand-new Crooked Apple Hard Cider. These orchard-fresh, 100-percent apple juice recipe kits leave out added sugar or corn syrup to generate a pure hard cider with a 6-percent ABV.
