AUSTIN, Texas – Summer’s arrived at the Austin Eastciders Collaboratory as the number-one craft cidery in Texas released a juicy Watermelon Cider exclusively at its East Side tap room beginning Saturday, April 20. The limited release is also available in Austin Eastciders summer variety twelve-packs now and will roll out in six-packs and on draft across Austin Eastciders markets by June.

Like all Austin Eastciders products, Austin Eastciders Watermelon Cider is made with real ingredients and has 1/3 less sugar than other leading ciders. The new cider blends the cidery’s deliciously crisp, dry cider with refreshing watermelon for a fresh-cut melon with notes of cucumber aroma and crisp apple, watermelon and honeydew melon taste.

“What’s more refreshing than fresh-cut watermelon on a hot summer day? Watermelon blended into a crisp, cold, dry cider!” said Brittnay Perlo, Master Cidermaker, Austin Eastciders. “Our watermelon cider is the driest of our fruit flavors and has a refreshing bite of watermelon and honeydew on the front with the classic dry finish of our ciders.”
