Schlafly Hard Cider

A good cider treads the line sweet versus tart. The one that walks this line as a walker on a tightrope is sure to be a winner. Find this ideal balance in local craft beer mogul Schlafly’s Hard Cider. The aroma is reminiscent of apples and white wine, while its medium to light body and gentle carbonation is more comparable to a champagne. Apple tart and crisp with a dry finish, it packs a big punch at 7.2% ABV.
