The annual Cider Dayze Festival attracts thousands of people.
This two-day hard cider festival celebrates craft cider and beer by hosting more than 50+ regional breweries, cideries and wineries, plus food trucks, games and live music.
Hard cider is an alcoholic drink made from fermented apple juice. Though you can make hard cider from all kinds of apples, cider apples are recognized as the best choice.
While you can enjoy the drink year-round, it is most popular during the late summer and fall months.
On average, most hard ciders are 4.5% – 7% ABV (alcohol by volume), while some ciders have an ABV as high as 10% or 12%.
Drier ciders usually have a higher ABV because the yeast consumes a majority of the cider’s natural sugars.
Our personal favorite? Blake’s Hard Cider Co. Triple Jam (6.5% ABV) give it a try.
