Collective Arts branches into cider
Hamilton – Collective Arts Brewing Co. today announced the release of two new craft ciders, joining their beer lineup.
Jeff Tkachuk, a partner of Collective Arts Brewing states, “we are excited to add these two craft ciders to our portfolio. This has been part of our plan since day one at Collective Arts.”
“The ability to use traditional methods with local, on hand ingredients to produce a bright, complex, fruity beverage is what I love about making cider,” says Matt Howell, Collective Arts cider maker.
Local Press Apple Cider – Made from Ontario-grown Northern Spy, IDA Red, and Spartan apples with French cider yeast, this 5.6% off-dry flagship cider also uses a small portion of fresh juice that is blended back to balance the acid impart a fresh fruit nose, according to Collective Arts.
Apple & Cherry Cider – Montmorency cherry juice sourced from the Niagara escarpment is blended with Collective Arts’ flagship cider producing a tart, fruity and sharp profile at 5%, says the brewery.
Both ciders are now available at selected Loblaw locations across the province, coinciding with today’s launch of cider in grocery stores.
