Vander Mill Chapman’s Blend


Brewed by Vander Mill
Spring Lake, Michigan USA
Style: Cider | Ratings: 14 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 6.8%
John Chapman was an American pioneer that was credited with bringing apple trees to the Midwest in the early 1800s. He was regarded as a kind and generous nurseryman whose apples were often used to make hard cider. Today he is better known as Johnny Appleseed. Chapman’s Blend is made from a variety of American heritage apples that all come from Michigan and have over 200 years of history in the US. Varieties include: Winesap, Baldwin, Northern Spy and Jonathan. It is a semi-dry cider with a clean fruit flavor and slight carbonation. These apples offer subtleties to cider that are not possible with more dessert-like varieties. They are often more acidic and carry more tannin through to the juice.
