The Double Tap List: The Best of #Cider on Instagram (August 11–17)

You made it to Friday, #ciderlovers, and for that, you deserve a serious high-five! Way to get some serious work done this week. But, now, it is time for some fun!

We are celebrating the end of the workweek with a brand-new version of The Double Tap List, our curated roundup of the most notable and like-worthy cider content that we discovered on Instagram over the past seven days. Get ready for a great weekend full of proper #cider fun, including Saturday festivals, puppy benefits, and the cider goats are back!

Check out some of our favorite ‘grams from August 11–17:

Half Pint Ciders

Who invited Cactus Rosé to the cider party and didn’t tell ME?! How awesome does this cider look? I think this will go perfectly with a pair of shades and a canopy beach chair along the coastline of your favorite vacation spot! If you are not familiar with Half Pint Ciders, it is a cider distribution company in Southern California (learn more here)! One of the main brands it reps is 101 Cider House, an L.A.-based cider company, producing adult juice full of healthy, tasty goodness. Its sour cider is produced in small batches and methodically aged for four months, and the result is a sour, alcoholic cider that is also a certified probiotic beverage full of flavor. In short, 101 is creating a delicious and healthy cider option that you absolutely need to try!

1859 Cider Co.

Oregon’s 1859 Cider Co. was helping out a great cause this past week by hosting a Canine Happy Hour on Tuesday night. From 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., guests who stopped by the Salem taproom could enjoy the company of some very special shelter dog ambassadors while sipping on some 1859 cider, with $1 from each glass of cider purchased going to benefit the Willamette Humane Society. Donations were also accepted, in the form of canned cat food, dog treats and leashes. Awesome job, 1859!

Supreme Core Cider

If you are still looking to make plans for this weekend, Supreme Core Cider may be able to help you out! This Saturday, August 18, head on over to D.C.’s own Supreme Core for BBQ and cider cocktails galore at the Pig & Barrel Cider Release BBQ Party. Sloppy Mama’s BBQ will be supplying the grub (get the brisket sandwich!) from 2 to 6 p.m., while Supreme supplies the beverages. There will also be spirits sampling available from D.C.’s One Eight Distilling. Get your tickets here! Every ticket provides you with admission and a bottle of some of the party’s special release cider to take with you, so don’t miss this event!

Spicer’s Winery

Mark your calendars for next weekend’s awesome event: the 4th Annual Cider Dayze Festival. August 25 and 26 will be a busy weekend in Armada, Michigan, full of cider, food and fun. Cider Dayze is a non-profit event hosted by Blake’s Orchard and Cider Mill. Admission includes nine drink tickets to sample some cider from Shacksbury, Virtue Cider and so many others. Who loves cornhole? That game, and other fun games, like giant Jenga and even Kan Jam, will be happening on site for guests to burn off some of the energy they build up by feasting on some grub from local food vendors, like Flying Hog BBQ. Visit the Cider Dayze Festival website for more event information and to buy your tickets. Shout out to Spicers Winery for spreading the good word.

Toronto Cider Festival (via @adventurous.equestrian)

The cider goats are back! This time they are all about Toronto Cider Fest which is coming up fast: August 24 and 25 is when cider takes over Toronto, and the lineup is impressive! Thornbury, Ernest Cider, East Street Cider Co. and Ironwood are just some of the names you will see at next weekend’s event. After winning the honor of being the “Notable Best Festival Award” in 2017, this year the festival is not holding back. Over 100 kinds of cider from the best cideries in Canada and around the world will be represented. I want to warn all of you cider-lovers out there that these tickets are going FAST! Do NOT hesitate to purchase your cider session! Come to Toronto and make memories while creating an amazing cider experience for yourself!
