Beer drinkers, your cider is in. Yep, Woodchuck hopped up some cider for you. It pours a light straw-yellow, much like a pilsner, but the head does not linger long. Tight tiny champagne like bubbles continue to be released as you sip and agitate your glass. On the nose it seems more like a riesling then a cider. Citrus, pine, and a mild sourness are the predominant scents along with traces of green apples and sour grapes. Sweet but not dense or offensive, Hopsation give you hints of pears and apples. Then the hops saunter in and bring an enjoyable pine resin finish with a touch of rosemary and sage. Enjoy this crisp refreshing cider on a hot day, or with grilled chicken fajitas, walleye fingers, and even eggplant parmesan.

Bacchus Wine & Spirits. The one, the only. Providing you with a carefully curated selection of exceptional beer, wines and spirits. And though Bacchus was the Roman god of wine, we’re pretty sure he enjoyed a great beer now and then, and this store is packed with them including those hard-to-get new releases that will impress your friends. But if he fancied a cocktail, he would love the wide variety of spirits packing the shelves. And he would applaud the outstanding collection of wines in every price range, most hand picked by a certified sommelier (that’s almost as high as a god), who is a Sherlock Holmes of finding hidden gems that other stores are content to ignore in favor of mass produced alcoholic grape juice… (oops, did we really say that?) Bacchus Wine & Spirits—not a superstore, but a superior store.
