Introducing our new winter seasonal: Bucket

Introducing our new winter seasonal: Bucket

Once we had a taste of Erraticus 6, we knew something special was happening. The tart black currant and apple flavors blended with the soft oak notes creating a unique beverage we wanted to sip on more than once. As you know (or maybe you don’t but you should), our Erraticus Wild Ciders are a series of one-off ciders allowing for wild, natural fermentation to occur, promising each to be one of a kind. Since we couldn’t recreate the exact magic of Erraticus 6, we decided to do the next best thing; allow this cider to inspire our master cider maker, Tony, to create a new seasonal release reminiscent of Erraticus 6 for those cold winter months. Enter: Bucket.

Bucket (6% ABV) is a Semi-Dry Fruit Cider fermented with black currants and aged on oak chips. Deep crimson red in color with a shimmering light pink head, this cider carries aromas of tart fruit and vanilla. Apple and black currant flavors blend well and balance the acidity and sweetness for a clean and dry finish.

This seasonal cider will be making its way to stores and taps near you throughout our distribution footprint (MI, IL, IN, OH, WI, CO) over the next couple of weeks. Find some Bucket in your neck of the woods, and #PickCider to keep you warm this winter.

Starcut Ciders Erraticus 11 Release

Starcut Ciders Erraticus 11 Release

It’s safe to say we’re on a roll, a cider roll! Erraticus 8, Elita, Erraticus 9, and Erraticus 10 are some of the tastiest Starcut Ciders to make their way into bottles, but we think Erraticus 11 might just take the cake! A wild cider fermented with black currant, juniper, and Michigan apples, Erraticus 11 is ready for sippin’, so we’re releasing ‘er at the Short’s Brewing Company pub on Thursday, July 20th.

You can take home your very own bottle of Erraticus 11 for $11.00 at 11:00 am. That’s 1 dollar for every tasty bottle we’ve released. 11, 11, 11, make a wish!
