Anthem Cider

Last night my friends Jessie, Stephen, Unwana and Nick invited me out to Stone Brewing World Bistro's awesome location at San Diego's Liberty Station.  I absolutely love the space; it's enormous, has plenty of room for everybody, serves up some Bocce ball courts, and great outdoor fire pits.

When we arrived I sidled up to the bar and asked about the place's ciders.  Despite the fact that I haven't been drinking recently I decided to reward myself for a hard-fought set of sprints earlier in the day.  The bartender pointed me in the direction of Anthem, saying that it was the only one they served up.  I took it, figuring since there was no other option I might as well give it a go.  He brought me out a huge bottle, definitely at least two drinks worth, and I sipped it gingerly after seeing the bottled was marked "Gluten Free."

The cider was great.  I've become a huge fan of ciders, especially now that we are deep into autumn.  Ciders remind me of apple picking, fall foliage, and the great fall scents that come with autumn in the northeast.

When I arrived home I looked into Anthem brands and, in a spot of great news, all Anthem Ciders are gluten free!  I didn't check out the nutritional information (read: the calories) but I would definitely give the other flavors a try.

Do you love it or do you love it?
