A hard cider is an alcoholic drink made through the fermenting of fruit. They are not considered beer which requires hops and malt in the fermenting process. Hard ciders come in many different flavors such as apple, pear, wild berry and many more. Some of the more well known ciders are Angry Orchard and Strongbow.
Price: $12.99 per twelve pack (Angry Orchard)
Beer lovers that also crave a twist of extra favor may enjoy a flavored beer. Some examples include Grain Belt Blu, Schell’s Sangria, Bud Light Lemonade and Bush Light Apple. Since they’re light beers the beer flavor isn’t overpowering but neither is the added fruit flavor. I like to call these “lake beers,” because they’re really good for a hot day on a lake.
Price $11.99 per twelve pack (Bush Light Apple)
These fizzy drinks have enjoyed an explosion of popularity in recent years offering any fruit flavor you can imagine with a low calorie content. They contain carbonated water, alcohol and fruit flavoring. Popular brands include Truly and White Claw.
Price: $14.99 per twelve pack (White Claw variety pack)
Flavored Malt Beverages
Flavored malt beverages like Mike’s have been around for years. They come in a variety of flavors and tend to have a strong flavor profile. If you pick up a Mike’s Hard Lemonade, it’s tastes like an alcoholic lemonade.
Price: $13.49 per twelve back (Mike’s variety pack)
