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!
