We talk a lot about beer from a brewer’s perspective on the Utah Beer News Podcast. But often we don’t consider all the elements involved in understanding how a brewer’s creation gets into our glass.

More Episodes

In Episode 43 of the Utah Beer News Podcast, we visited with Matthew Ostrander, Chief Cider Curator at Ibantik Craft Beverages. Be sure to give that episode a listen to learn all about the good work Ibantik is doing to help grow the craft cider scene in Utah.

Matthew provided us with so much insight into craft cider — and alcohol in Utah in general — that I couldn’t fit it in a single episode. The following Bonus Episode features snippets I hope you find interesting. Among the tidbits:

  • Matthew answers my question about overall craft cider production
  • We talk about the lack of cold storage in Utah liquor stores and the impact that does or doesn’t have on craft cider
  • Matthew discusses what could constitute a “bad” cider — and he also offers up a cool story about his first cider (which decidedly wasn’t a bad one)
  • We delve a bit into Matthew’s mission to find a cider that he could mistake for beer — and he found one
  • Matthew lets everyday consumers know how they can place a special order for their favorite cider
  • And we discuss the current alcohol darling — hard seltzer — and how its popularity is affecting craft cider

Enjoy the bonus episode!
