Locust is having a Hootenanny! New ciders launching in October 2016. The Hootenanny Series features the crazy and full flavored ciders of Locust. Watch closely for the ciders to be announced soon.
“The Seattle hootenannies were real community affairs. One family would bring a whole pot of some dish like crab gumbo. Others would bring cakes, salads. A drama group performed topical skits, a good 16-mm film might be shown, and there would be dancing, swing and folk, for those of sound limb. And, of course, there would be singing.”
An off-dry cider blended with fresh sweet dark cherries from Washington. It tastes like a bite of a fresh cherry- a bit tart, barely sweet, and deep enough for drinking in the winter or the summer. Reminiscent of a good lambic. Pairs great with asian food. 6.0% ABV APPLES: Granny Smith, Gala
The cider that started it all for Locust- we set out to make the most DRINKABLE cider in the world, and we think we did. Bright citrus and pineapple notes with a crisp and balanced finish makes Original Dry THE SESSION CIDER, and great with any food. WE drink it (a few...) while we're BBQing in the backyard. 6.0% ABV APPLES: Pac NW granny smith, gala, fuji, golden delicious, red delicious
We braved the mountains, rivers and fields of southeast Asia to find the perfect Galangal, Thai Ginger root. Blended with a sweet hard cider made from PacNW apples, the result is a woody, earthy, piney, and yes gingery cider equally at home in front of a holiday fireplace as it is at a summer BBQ. 6.0% ABV APPLES: Granny Smith, Gala
Sweet Aged Apple
We leave a blend of pressed Washington dessert apples on their own and let the wild yeasts do their work. Then we age it for 6 months. The result is a semi-sweet, full bodied, deep, very appley, smooth and round cider. There is Beauty in imperfection. Great with meat and cheese, stands up! (formerly known as wabi sabi and aged washington dessert apple) 5.0% ABV
This full bodied, tart, apple cider tastes beautifully of dried apricots, and is great and refreshing in the summer yet hardy and warming in the colder months. 5.0% ABV
Seasonal: Elder & Oak
A deep, earthy, rich, full bodied and balanced cider. It starts with Pacific Northwest dessert apples, fermented, aged on medium American oak. Once the apple cider reaches the perfect level of body and oak tannin, it is spiked with Elderberry, a bitter and deeply earthy berry, which adds body, complexity, and ends in a red wine-like hard cider unlike anything you’ve tasted. Yet despite the complexity, this, like all Locust Ciders, is well balanced and very drinkable. 7.0% ABV
Seasonal: Moroccan Mint Green Tea Infused
There's a reason we release our Green Tea cider in the summer. This bone dry cider is SO refreshing, featuring a minty blend of Chinese green tea and peppermint, it drinks like a tea. Drink it straight from the bottle if you like your cider or tea bone dry, or sweeten to your liking with lemonade or sugar and drink over ice. 5.0% ABV
Special: Session Berry
Its berry season in the pacific northwest, and its getting hot, so its time for Session Berry. Featuring fresh strawberry, blueberry, and blackberry, with a focus on the strawberry, this light in alcohol cider is fruity and goes down easy. 4% ABV
Gose is a German style of beer brewed with saline water (likely because of the salty water that sprung from the wells near the town of Goslar), that is sour, crisp and refreshing.
Brackish is a cider, inspired by the tart refreshing flavors of a gose, that incorporates lemon, saltwater, and just a tiny hint of coriander. 6.0% ABV
Special: Chili Pineapple
The fruity and mild Aleppo chili is infused into a crisp apple and pineapple cider, for a semi-sweet, balanced cider with just enough heat at the end. Its spicy enough to add complexity but remains easy to drink, the spice is not overpowering.
Special: Smoked Blueberry
this sweet cider is made with fresh Pac NW apples, infused with blueberries and alderwood smoke for a surprisingly balanced and drinkable, insanely interesting hard cider.
Special: Dolgo Crabapple
Made from a single varietal crabapple from a single Oregon orchard, this semi-sweet cider is bright and sour. The Dolgo Crabapple is commonly thought of as in-edible, but that’s definitely not the case! It makes amazing cider!
