Boulevard Brewing Co. (Kansas City, Missouri) will officially introduce its first ever Cider with the upcoming Seasonal release of City Market Cider.
Kansas City’s historic City Market is widely known as “a place where chefs and home cooks come together to show and taste the best flavors in the region.” This is an institution and community that should be celebrated, and Boulevard Brewing Co. has done just that with the creation of City Market Cider.
Checking in as Boulevard’s first cider and next Seasonal release, City Market Cider is a “local blend [combining] juice from Jonathan and Fuji apples sourced directly from Sibley Orchard & Cider Mill in Sibley, Missouri.” After undergoing fermentation with Boulevard’s house strain of English ale yeast, City Market Cider was then finished with “a slight blend back of fresh Fuji juice (2.8% of the total blend) to lend a balancing sweetness.” This all results in a 6.2% ABV Cider that “[alternates] between sweet and tart apple character” in both flavor and aroma.
City Market Cider will launch in the Greater Kansas City Area on Tuesday, November 14 with other regions to follow shortly thereafter. Once the rollout is completed, you can expect to find this Seasonal release available in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles at select beer and cider-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Missouri and throughout the rest of Boulevard Brewing Co.’s distribution network. Prost!
