Is there a better way to take a break from a hectic last day of Fall in Austin Texas? A bottle of Austin Eastciders and a sidewalk session at Royal Blue Grocery on Congress Avenue in Austin is a perfect mid-afternoon break.
This was my first Austin made cider session and Eastciders produced some solid Autumn gold. Mellow and sweet, I expected it to be a bit more tart but this cider was very satisfying. At $6.50 for a good sized bottle it was also a good value.
Of course I had to fend off the hobos and a very persistent crazy woman who bore a striking resemblance to Anita Perry. Everybody loves cider it seems.
It’s good to see these guys starting to get some market penetration. Hopefully Fiesta Mart will begin carrying them.
