A Delicious Alternative to Beer

A Delicious Alternative to Beer October may be the month of beer, but many aren’t into brew. Offering a timely alternative, Pete Brown and Bill Bradshaw revisit and revive what was once designated as “ugly hard cider” in their brilliant new book, World’s Best Cider: Taste, Tradition and Terroir. Giving both lifelong cider enthusiasts and novices the full, fascinating picture, Pete and Bill go into great depth of cider’s history, styles and making process. From the Austrian Hansbauer Florina Apfelmost to the crisp Irish Llewellyns Double L Bone Dry Cider, this book covers every imaginable cider-making nook on the map. Each mentioned cider is paired with a gorgeous bottle shot and detailed tasting note, making for easy learning. At just $30, Pete Brown and Bill Bradshaw’s World’s Best Cider is the holy grail of cider knowledge.
