Cider

Charred Ordinary

Similar to a lambic ale, this semi-sparkling cider has a golden color, residual sugar of 0.5% and 8.3% ABV
Hay, apples, and cider in the nose. Dry and sour with grapefruit notes and a hint of both charcoal and raisin in the finish.
Made predominantly of Winesap and Arkansas Black, this old fashioned cider pairs well with traditional Virginia foods like salt-cured and smoked meats, fish and cheeses.
The name references the old taverns of the colonial tidewater known as ordinaries, many of which lay in burned ruins to this day.
