A Quick Guide to PA Cider & Food Pairings
Cider is one of the most food-friendly beverages out there! Its crisp, bright nature helps to cut through intense, savory flavors, and its apple character works beautifully with so many ingredients, especially cheese, pork and spices.
Pennsylvania cider boasts many styles: dry and sweet, fruity and tart, acid-driven and mellow. Some ciders have other ingredients, like fruit, herbs and hops added, for even more tasty variations. To dial in your cider and food pairings even more, think about the flavors in the cider and the flavors in the food, and see if you can find elements that either complement or contrast with one another.
