Cider Showdown: The Hoppy Brewer’s Triple Threat 


Cans, Bottles, or Taps: The Cider Conundrum 

Just like beer, cider lovers often find themselves facing a tough decision: should they enjoy their favorite cider from a can, a bottle, or on tap? Each option has its own unique advantages and characteristics, making the choice a matter of personal preference. At The Hoppy Brewer, we’re proud to offer the biggest selection of cider in all three forms, including a wide array of options sourced from top producers around the world. Let’s delve into the pros and cons of each option to help you decide which cider is right for you. 

Canned Cider: Portable and Practical 

Canned cider has surged in popularity in recent years, thanks to its convenience and portability. Cans are lightweight, easy to transport, and perfect for outdoor adventures, picnics, and parties. Plus, cans offer superior protection from light and oxygen, ensuring that your cider stays fresh and flavorful until the very last sip. At The Hoppy Brewer, we offer a variety of canned ciders, from crisp and dry to sweet and fruity, providing something for every cider enthusiast to enjoy. 

Bottled Cider: Classic Elegance 

For many cider aficionados, there’s something special about enjoying a cider from a bottle. Bottles exude a sense of classic elegance and sophistication, making them a popular choice for special occasions and celebrations. Plus, bottles are easily recyclable and environmentally friendly, making them a sustainable choice for eco-conscious consumers. Some cider styles, such as traditional English ciders and specialty blends, are best enjoyed from a bottle to fully appreciate their complex flavors and aromas. At The Hoppy Brewer, we stock a wide selection of bottled ciders, including imported favorites from renowned producers. 

On Tap: Fresh and Flavorful 

For the ultimate cider experience, nothing beats a pint poured fresh from the tap. Draft cider is prized for its unparalleled freshness and crisp, clean taste, thanks to the lack of light exposure and minimal oxidation. Plus, many cideries offer exclusive or limited-edition ciders on tap that can’t be found in cans or bottles, making it a must-try for cider enthusiasts seeking something new and exciting. At The Hoppy Brewer, we boast an impressive selection of ciders on tap, with a variety of styles and flavors to tantalize your taste buds.
