2 Towns Serious Scrump Makes its Seasonal Return

It’s Imperial season, time for big beers and big ciders like 2 Towns Ciderhouse’s just released 2019 vintage of their 11% abv hard cider “Serious Scrump.” Based on a traditional English-style ‘scrumpy’ cider, 2 Towns amps this seasonal favorite up to 11.

More from a press release:

Historically, scrumpy ciders are made with a blend of random apples leftover from the harvest (or stolen from orchards in some cases). The resulting cider is usually a strong, dry cider adored for it’s utilization of otherwise wasted apples. 2 Town’s modern twist takes a similarly eclectic blend of high acid Northwest apples, pressed before freezing the juice. Then, slowly over the course of several days, the intensified ‘ice juice’ is drained out, leaving a frozen slushy of water crystals behind. The resulting high sugar, deliciously rich ice juice provides a boost of apple character and the fuel needed for the English yeast to reach that “Serious” ABV!

Available now through May, this imperial cider is sure to keep you toasty all winter long. Available in 500ml bottles, 1/2 bbl & 1/6 bbl kegs to distributors throughout Oregon, Washington, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Chicago and parts of Minnesota & Montana.
