The cider category has been growing for years in Alberta. Last year alone saw a 19 percent increase in volume sold in the province. Partly because of this and for other reasons (not the least of which it makes a great gluten-free drinking option), craft cideries have begun to emerge along with their brewery and distillery brethren. Alberta is no exception and Calgary’s Uncommon Cider wins for their Great Northern Wild Cider. This cider is partly cloudy and made with a combination of apples and crabapples, which are fermented with wild yeast. Dry, tasty, and refreshing. David Nuttall
