08 Sep Hear from Supreme Core Craft Cider’s Founders
By Michael Stein
Supreme Core Craft Cider is DC’s newest cidery. It will be some time before you can get cider, beer, and rum all made within a three mile radius of each other in Northeast, but you can sample Supreme Core Craft Cider at both Glen’s Garden Markets this Sunday.
The first product from Supreme Core is called Micawber, and it’s an unfiltered, dry cider fermented with English ale yeast. It is 6.9% alcohol by volume. On Sunday, September 10th, tastings will be held at Glen’s Garden Market Dupont Circle, 2001 S Street, NW, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and then move to Glen’s Garden Market Shaw, 1924 8th Street, NW from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m.
As a bonus to you, intrepid Sunday funday cider-sipper, in addition to their Micawber dry, unfiltered cider, they’ll offer a barrel-aged version of it on draft at both Glen’s. The barrel-aged version came out of a Sagamore Spirit Rye Whiskey cask, and you can expect four-pack cans of oak-aged cider to be available at Glen’s next month.
DCBeer had a chance to talk to Supreme Core co-founders Kyle Crosby and Will Sullivan, and the following transcript has been lightly edited for clarity and brevity.
