WILK Friday BeerBuzz–4 Nov 2011 Woodchuck Cider w/Bret Williams

WILKFridayBerbuzz10There’s something amazing that happens when you talk to a guest that loves what they do.  That energy, passion & enthusiasm for their “product” shines through and makes for a really great conversation.  Today we were lucky enough to have such a guest on the show.  Bret Williams, President & CEO of Woodchuck Cider joined us on the Friday BeerBuzz to sample not only a classic cider, but also some really interesting NEW ciders.

imageNow I know what you’re thinking already….hey…we’re a beer show right…then why are we talking about cider?  Well the answer is simple.  We like cider…and so do many others. 

Anyone that remembers our Gluten-free show back in March, will also know we’ve featured a cider or two already. 

Cider is also a not-too-distant-cousin to beer and in fact, Woodchuck  802 Cider was originally created to appeal to beer lovers and even won the People’s Choice Award at the Albany BEER Festival…so why not enjoy a good cider on the show. 

It was really fun tasting Woodchuck Amber with Bret.  This classic amber cider (their flagship) is easy drinking, and has a strong family resemblance to some of the beers we’ve tasted on the show in the past.  It’s a classic cider you should try for yourself.  The Woodchuck Winter seasonal cider was dark, complex and rich, with notes of oak and some very subtle spice-like & vanilla flavors.  This one is a limited release so do not delay…get out and try some now before it’s all gone.  By far my favorite cider of the day was the brand spanking new Woodchuck Crisp.  This new addition to Woodchuck’s core ciders is their first sessionable cider and as Bret said, we believe this is the first ever “session cider” but don’t let that fool you.  Crisp is a clean easy-drinking, flavorful cider with lots of body and a really drinkable flavor.

We had a great time talking Cider with Bret and I really learned a lot about what goes in to making a good cider.  Bret Williams is a wonderful spokesman for Woodchuck and I can’t wait to try the rest of their cider varieties.


to Bret Williams from Woodchuck Cider, Nancy, John, Joe, & Bosco for yet another fun Friday.
