FLANNEL MOUTH

CLASSIC APPLE
Blake’s Flannel Mouth, our classic apple cider is made with a wide array of late season table and dessert apples. This succulent combination gives it a sweet flavor than finishes incredibly smoothly. Made 100% with Michigan-grown apples, Flannel Mouth is sure to win you over. Again and again.

EL CHAVO

MANGO & HABANERO
At Blake’s Hard Cider Co., we like spicing things up. That’s why we put dimmers on the lights in our Cider House. And it’s why we created this sweet, heated blend of habanero pepper, mango and our famous Blake’s apples. Experience a hard cider that’s really, honestly, truly like no other. Experience El Chavo.

BEARD BENDER

DRY
Blake’s Beard Bender is a 100% natural hard cider. It’s funny – when nothing’s added, you taste the true characteristics of the apple. Not for the faint of heart, Beard Bender packs a punch not expected from hard cider. Derived from a variety of Bittersweet and Bittersharp apples. Beard Bender is tart, crisp and amazingly drinkable. And, of course, 100% grown at Blake Farms in Armada, Mi.

GRIZZLY PEAR

PEAR & ELDERFLOWER
Our first pear hard cider, Grizzly melds soft notes of pear balanced with a sharp apple finish with a hint of elderflower. No bears were harmed in the making of this product.

ROSé

STRAWBERRY & ROSE HIPS
Semi-sweet with a citrus like acidity, this native fermented Rosé was infused with strawberries and rose hips, resulting in a vibrant finish.

RAINBOW SEEKER

PINEAPPLE & SAGE
Let this pineapple paradise in a can take you on a tropical ride. With hints of sage, this balanced semi-sweet hard cider is impactful in more ways than just quenching your thirst.

GREAT BLAKES

COFFEE INFUSED
Our take on a cold brew, Great Blakes is steeped with sustainably-sourced coffee grounds from our friends at Great Lakes Coffee, resulting in bold flavor & a smooth finish. Made in support of organizations working to protect and preserve the Great Lakes, this semi-sweet was crafted with passion for our #KinderCider Series.
