February 12, 2018 (Portland, OR) – Bauman’s Cider company announces the first ever bottling of their cider with the release of Clyde’s Dry and Loganberry 500ml bottles. The new bottles are available now at Bauman’s Farm and Garden as well as stores, bars and bottle shops through the Portland-Salem metro area.
CLYDE’S DRY | 6.9 ABV
Clyde’s Dry is named after Clyde Bauman, who was born in 1921 on the farm where he would live his entire 92 years. Clyde’s Dry cider is our tribute to his life and his love of the farm. It is a blend of more than a dozen varietals, including sweets and sharps grown on the family farm and loved by Clyde, farming until his very last days. It draws its tannic character from the blend and the addition of some locally-picked Crab apples.
LOGANBERRY | 6.0 ABV
Loganberries are generally one of the first berries of the season and make this a sweet, fruity cider. Logans are a hybrid between a blackberry and a raspberry and aren’t picked with a machine as they are too delicate and soft, and those attributes come out in the cider as a sweetness from start to finish.
“We wanted to bottle Clyde’s Dry first as a tribute to my Grandpa Clyde who played such a significant role in the richness of Bauman Farms.” said Christine Walter, owner and head cider maker at Bauman’s Cider. “The demand for our Loganberry cider on draught has been so great that it was a natural choice for this first round of bottling. It has such an interesting flavor, we are excited to bring it to a wider audience with the bottles.”
