We love this stuff, even more after we did our own taste test of hard cider brands. There's something extremely pleasing about the flavor of apples mingling with beer's refreshing effervescence. So far this fall, we've been enjoying cider a lot more frequently than ever before. After a look over this awesome infographic from Angry Orchard Hard Cider, it looks like we're not alone.
