SOUTH CITY CIDERWORKS

Dry Me A River

South City-23Dry Me A River was created to bring awareness to the recent drought that has greatly impacted much of California. But on the bright side, Dry Me a River has also put smiles on the faces of a lot of cider lovers in the region. This cider was perfectly crafted to be a delicious, every-day cider for anybody to sip and enjoy. Whether you’re at the beach basking in the sun, or hitting the ski slopes on a snowy winter day, Dry Me A River is the perfect beverage to quench your thirst.

Not too sweet, and not too dry, this cider starts off crisp with strong apple flavors, transitioning into subtle notes of pear and citrus. It finishes light and dry with many white wine characteristics due to the white wine yeast used in fermentation.

About the Cider Makers

South City Cider MakersSouth City Ciderworks was founded in 2015 by three friends with a passion for cider, and an even greater devotion to philanthropy. South City’s uplifting motto is Make Cider Make a Difference. Three percent of annual sales of their cider is donated directly to non-profits that help support the community, animals, and the environment.

South City Ciderworks is located in San Bruno, CA just south of San Francisco. The Bay Area is slowly becoming a new cider hub for cider lovers. South City Ciderworks noticed a void of craft cider in the bay area, and has since been attracting the likes of locavores and veteran cider drinkers to the region in search of their cider.

Liberty Cider PicExperience the deep-rooted tradition of cidermaking as you sip this Gravenstein Single-Varietal cider from Liberty Ciderworks. Many cider makers gather an assortment of apple varieties to create a unique cider. However, as part of their reputable Heirloom Series, Liberty Ciderworks wanted to focus solely on the illustrious Gravenstein apple to craft this seriously individualistic cider. Great attention to detail and patience are required to produce the highest quality cider possible.

This cider presents aromas of fresh apples and apricot. It maintains a bright acidity as well, with a hint of honey flavors. This cider is semi-dry, crisp and refreshing. Create a tasty pairing with pork, cheese, or a charcuterie plate.
