Brewing a Local Gluten Free Cider w/ Bourbon Oak Chips

with one comment

20140414-094159.jpgFor this year’s 10th Anniversary Blue Point Brewery Cask Ale Festival Alicia suggested we brew a cider. We have crafted several ciders (succesfully) for many events held across Long Island over the last few years so this was an easy decision to make. The 10th Anniversary of the Blue Point Brewery Cask Festival would mark the first time, ever, Beer Loves Company would make a cider and cask condition it.

To create our product we decided to go with unpasteurized apple cider from local Richter’s Orchards in Northport, NY. At first we were a bit hesitant to use cider in this state but after talking with the people at Richter’s we thought, what the hell. Our goal with this cider was to try and make something we would enjoy. We weren’t thinking about anyone else’s palates but ours when putting ideas together. So if the people who essentially live apples suggest unpasteurized cider (which they said would give us a truer apple taste) then that was good enough for us.

Apple of my Chai is the name of a cider we brewed to pour at the Brewer’s East End Revival (B.E.E.R.) homebrew club table during the inaugural edition of Great South Bay Brewing Company’s Punktoberfest. This event is GSB’s celebration of all things fall, Oktoberfest and Punk Rock. The edict for bringing a beer to pour at P-Fest was that it needed to be “fall themed”. This of course opened the flood gates for pumpkin and Oktoberfest style beers. While we are fans of those categories of beer we thought bringing a cider would be a change of pace for us and the patrons who would come and try a pour (or two).
