ANGRY ORCHARD HARD CIDER Kicks Off Fall with New Hardcore 8% ABV Imperial Cider

Editor's Note: Just in time for late summer and early fall, check our Angry Orchard's newest 8% ABV cider!

Angry Orchard Hardcore Dark Cherry Apple Imperial Hard Cider. Imperial higher ABV options are driving growth across beer, FMB and cider categories, so Angry Orchard's newest innovation marks the brand's first nationally available 8% ABV cider. Made with traditional bittersweet cider apples and blended with dark cherry juice from concentrate for a deliciously easy to drink cider bursting with real fruit flavor, Hardcore Dark Cherry Apple is the perfect balance of crisp apple and tart cherry sweetness. In honor of its 8% ABV, Hardcore Dark Cherry Apple will be available beginning 8/8 in six-pack 12oz cans. It will also be a featured flavor in the Angry Orchard Fall Haul Variety Packs dropping this fall. New Angry Orchard Hardcore Dark Cherry Apple 8% Imperial Hard Cider is available nationwide now.

"Through the years, Angry Orchard has been synonymous with offering deliciously bold ciders that feature real fruit," said Kelli McCusker, Head of Marketing for Angry Orchard. "As drinkers shop the increasingly crowded alcohol space, they're looking for offerings that deliver on flavor, ingredients and ABV to provide more value. Combining Angry Orchard's equity in real fruit with a higher ABV in our new Hardcore wins that shopper equation - while giving drinkers a new way to transport them to their 'happy place' that much faster."

Hardcore Dark Cherry Apple Imperial Hard Cider is hitting shelves just in time to enjoy throughout the remaining summer months at backyard barbeques, gatherings with family and friends, or simply to kick back and relax after a long day.
