2 Towns Ciderhouse introduces Prickly Pearadise

2 Towns Ciderhouse is introducing Prickly Pearadise cider to their main year-round lineup. This bright magenta colored hard cider gets it’s complexion from nopal cactus on top of the fresh-pressed northwest apple base. Prickly Pearadise is part of 2 Towns slow overhaul of the lineup to focus on ciders fermented with colorful fruits other than apples. Examples include marion blackberries (Made Marion), and black currant and cranberries (Cosmic Currant).
