Although I’ve had some cider from Tin City Cider Co. at restaurants in town we had not made it in to actually taste their line-up of ciders. So…we changed that. I love the vibe in there. It fits right in with the ‘Tin City’ industrial, rustic feeling. You can check some photos below in the slideshow to see what I mean.
It’s definitely one of those spots where you instantly feel comfortable when you walk in. It’s casual and has a lot of ‘family-style seating’. All the people we interacted with were super cool and laid back. Let’s get down to business, here’s what we tasted (with their tasting notes):
Original Dry Hopped Cider (Tropical, Citrus, Green Apple)
Stepladder Gose (Lime, Ocean Spray, Skinny Margarita)
Union Sacre (Rose petal, Dried herbs, Tropical)
Liliko’I (Passionfruit, Grapefruit)
Main Squeeze (Wit Bier, Lemon Lime – Not gluten-free)
Goldie: Vol. 2 (Luxury, Vanilla, Brioche)
Shandon ‘72 (Bonus taste)
It’s a really solid line-up of ciders. The Stepladder Gose is super unique and we both liked that. I also really enjoyed the Liliko’I, Main Squeeze, and Goldie: Vol. 2. Tin City has quickly become that cool, funky place to hang out and Tin City Cider Co. absolutely fits right in. We look forward to spending much more time there.
Check the photos below and also keep in mind, the day we were there, the old chef from The Hatch (Matthew Rogers) was there with his new business (Heirloom Catering – which he owns with his girlfriend, Brittney Yracheta) making some insanely delicious tacos. You’ll see those photos below as well and I soon hope to get a Q&A done with him about his new spot.
Until next time, drink up!
