The time is ripe to try Bawker Bawker Cider House’s very first all-pear hard cider. In Bawker Bawker’s two-plus years of being Tucson’s first and only hard cider house, all of their vibrant ciders have had one major thing in common — they each start with a base of Pacific Northwest apples.
After the apples, the ciders are infused, blended, and married with other fruits, spices, and herbs before fermentation to create a rainbow of unique cider flavors. That is until Perry’s Pear Cider came along. Pears, more pears, and nothing but pears were used to create this juicy hard cider, and it’s a bountiful mouthful of flavor.
Perry’s Pear Cider is supremely juicy and a little sweeter than Bawker Bawker’s usual offerings (which lean towards the dry side, thanks to longer fermentation times). If you had “apple-free hard cider” on your bingo card, if you shy away from gluten, or if you’re a cider fan itching to try something new and different, now is the time.
Round out your visit to Bawker Bawker with one of their rotating hard cider slushies — Concord Grape and Apple flavors are on tap now.
Bawker Bawker Cider House is located at 400 N. Fourth Ave. For more information, visit bawkerbawker.com.
