I recently stopped by Cache Cider while in Bay View. I’m a fan of cider, especially because I don’t really care for beer (except root beer!) and since this is the first cidery in Milwaukee I was excited to give it a try.
I think reading the interview or articles is important, because they explain what Ethan is trying to do, which is sort of… archive apples. It’s pretty interesting, his take on this. That said, everyone has different tastes, I have some favorite ciders, and some I don’t care for, so this isn’t so much a review as my own thoughts after trying some.
When we stopped by Cache Cider I said “Hey, give me six different bottles! Which would be called a “variety pack” in some places. These are what I got; Duchess of Oldenburg, Northwestern Greening, Arkansas Black, Ashmead’s Kernel, Roxbury Russell, and Entangled Cranberry. (I really liked the Duchess of Oldenburg and the Entangled Cranberry.)
I don’t know if I would make Cache Cider a regular stop, as I didn’t love any of the ones I got, but I think if you like cider you should check it out. I think Evan’s idea of archiving apples through cider is pretty cool, and it might be worth trying again in the future to see what’s new.
