-Ginger Cider is, to me, a summer drink best chilled and drank during the day. It's bubbly and gingery and our nearest thing to not dry. It is a "walking around" cider.
-Appinette is a Champagne drinkers cider. It too can be a walking around cider but it's very, very good with foods, especially beginning courses. Switch to Elderberry for the latter dinner.
-Elderberry cider is like a light-bodied red-wine but deep in heavy characteristics: woody and berry notes. It's the ultimate table/ food drink.
-Homestead Perry is a "study it" experience. Blind fold yourself and drink it slow. Go where it goes.
-Homestead Apple (all of them) is the same way. It goes great with foods, especially buttery rich foods, but it's a real interesting drink to evaluate on it's own.
-Homestead Crabapple is what we would all drink if it could be mass-produced. I seriously doubt that there is a drink in existence that can compete with the vitality or complexity, while still remaining drool-over drinkable. Sorry, no way to shark-tank this drink (and keep the authenticity.)
If you want a party/ "having-company" cider: Ginger and Appinette
Pure dinner cider: Appinette, Elderberry cider, and Homestead apple or crabappleCider for cider's sake: all of the Homestead ciders and perry.
