Peaks and Pints Monday Cider Flight: Liberty Ciderworks

Share

In 2013, Rick Hastings and Austin Dickey opened the first cidery in downtown Spokane, Liberty Ciderworks. From renovated downtown warehouse on Washington Street near the railroad tracks, they had a simple mission: To use apples from local farms and fields to create unique, wonderful ciders, and to share their ciders with friends and neighbors across the great Pacific Northwest. Peaks & Pints is proud to be a part of that mission, as our weekly Monday to-go cider flight depicts: Peaks and Pints Monday Cider Flight: Liberty Ciderworks. Hastings and Dickey made cider in their garages for years before going pro with their traditional, English-inspired artisanal hard cider. Stop by Peaks and make Liberty part of your day. Cheers!

Peaks and Pints Monday Cider Flight: Liberty Ciderworks

Liberty McIntosh

5.7% ABV

While not a major crop of Washington state, McIntosh apples adapt beautifully to the Inland Northwest — specifically, the Palouse region just south of Spokane, where Liberty Ciderworks grabs them for their McIntosh cider. This off-dry cider showcases classic Mac qualities, with aromatics and flavors reminiscent of ripe apples, cream, and honey. It’s also a 2019 and 2021 Good Food Awards Winner.

Liberty Raven Oak

7.6% ABV

Liberty’s Raven Oak is a blend of United Kingdom cider apples, grown in Eastern Washington. This cider is wild-yeast fermented and barrel-aged in charred in fellow Spokane neighbor Dry Fly Distillery barrels, expressing scents and flavors reminiscent of ripe apple, vanilla, fennel and … wait for it … oak.
