When the good people at the Bishop Cider Co. released their four original brews, it didn’t take long for one, in particular, to stand out from the pack. Crackberry, their cranberry/blackberry flavored masterpiece, has become a favorite here in the Dallas area. It’s been a hit with cider connoisseurs and made a believer of cider skeptics. After one taste, it’s not hard to see why.
The namesake comes from a mash-up of “cranberry” and “blackberry,” obviously. The fact that it’s so good and can be too hard to put down doesn’t play into the “crack” aspect (Just a happy coincidence. Wink, wink.). But there’s no denying that the sweet, tart taste and the 6.0% ABV make this a cider that’ll be sure to bring about some cravings long after you toss the can in the recycling bin.
As Bishop Cider Co. says, “one sip and you’re hooked.”
KEEP IT CLEAN
Bishop Cider Co. founders Joel and Laura Malone didn’t just want to make cider. They wanted to redeem cider. To do this, they stuck to a self-imposed standard that you just don’t see among other cider producers. So Crackberry, just like all the Bishop ciders, is made with all natural ingredients, and absolutely NO additional sweeteners are used. No cane sugar, no honey, and certainly no high fructose corn syrup. The sweetness you taste when you crack open a Crackberry comes from the natural sugars from the fruit used in the brewing process. On top of that, its naturally vegan and gluten-free, making it a drink everyone at your next get-together can enjoy.
COME GET SOME
If you want to experience Crackberry first hand, there are a few ways you can go about that. If you’re not in the Dallas area, don’t despair, cause Bishop Cider Co. has no problem shipping this killer concoction right to you. (Bishop is not able to ship to every state in the country, so visit their site to see if yours is on the list.)
If you do live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area or if you’re planning on coming through, check out their Tasting Room or Cidercade. There’s just something about kicking back and having fun that makes Crackberry taste even better. You can also stop by Taps & Caps in Fort Worth or Lewisville to get that Crackberry fix, or make it easy and just order online!
