    I had some hard cider for the first time tonight. Loved it. I tried A brand called Hardcore. Question, is it available all year or just in Autumn?

    I've honestly never seen any for sale. I make it every year as part of my winemaking experiments and it always comes out great. I use the old fashioned method. Apple cider, bread yeast, and a little sugar. Siphon once then sweeten slightly. Good stuff.

    I would think it'd be available in the fall mainly. That's the apple time of year.

    I have been drinking hard cider for years. Woodchuck, hornsbys, Cider Jack, And K are other brands to look for. I'm partial to K.

    I love Woodchuck. A friend introduced me to it a few years ago. Nothing, however, beats what my grandfather used to make.

    When I was in Scotland, I drank Strongbow.... man it was good. Better with food than beer and quite refreshing.


    Nothing I've found here quite compares with it.

    Love the Woodchuck Granny Smith variety. Great stuff and perfect on a hot summer day after mowing the yard.

    Never tried the regular stuff.

    Hornsby also makes a really good pear cider that even my local WalMart carries.

    Good stuff.
