Our Artist Salons continue. Last week Reverend Nat visited with some of his Communion wine - dry hard cider in this case – preaching the pleasures of the apple. This 6.9%-proof evangelist started his religion in his garage with a flat of apples and a conviction to make a cider that wasn't sweet, but dry and crisp. The result is an exploding small-batch business featuring a handful of non-traditional inventive flavors.
On tap at LAIKA/house (you read that right): Hallelujah Hopricot, which "starts with heirloom American apples as a Belgian wit-style cider steeped with coriander, bitter orange peel and paradise grains, fermented with French saison and Belgian ale yeasts."
Amen, Revered Nat. Amen.
