As someone that enjoys travel and seeing what the world has to offer, I have been to many festivals that serve adult beverages. And while I do not partake in great quantities, I enjoy discussing the finer points about libations and the reasons for which people have their drink of choice.
One of the greatest debates in the world of drinks it the debate between beer and cider. A great site called http://www.hardcideroverbeer.com/ is one of the best sources and arguments for choosing cider over beer. And even though the idea of hard cider is relatively new historically speaking, it is quickly becoming one of the most popular drinks in the entire nation.
Which side are you on?
When talking to people about the debate, I have found that there are two very different and polarizing sides. Both beer and cider have artisan brewing companies that are innovating the way in which people enjoy drinks, and each side has its own way of explaining why they like what they like.
Think of the way in which you like to enjoy beverages, now think about which drinks you grew up with. I find that there are more fans of artisan beer than cider, but the cider lovers seem to be a more adventurous group, willing to try new things and drinks that may have not been popular previously. Either way, there are two different sides of the same coin, and both parties have something to offer.
Hard cider or beer? The answer is one that takes a great deal of thought and understanding how you derive your decision and having enough knowledge on both topics in order to make an informed decision. There is no doubt that the cider industry is sweeping the nation, and that beer lovers are quickly expanding their horizons into the world of cider.
In the future, we can expect a smaller divide between the groups that like cider and the groups that like beer. It’s all about giving cider the attention and exposure that it needs in order to become a prime competitor in the beverage market.
