I was lucky enough to get my hands on a can of Strongbow cider recently. Mike, Maggie and I all declared it a tasty potable.
I’ve been drinking Woodchuck, which I like, but I’d wanted to try Strongbow ever since Patti told me it’s a favorite of Bob’s. When Sharon here at work mentioned the brand, I was past intrigued and into the thirsty phase. Sharon also offered me a can of the stuff, confirming her extremely generous spirit. Sharon is some sort of angel of hard cider. This temporarily solved my problem of where to get the stuff, since the local places have never heard of it. (I learned that when I went looking for it to share with Bob and others the night before a gaming get-together).
Strongbgow was a little dry and more tart than Woodchuck, which was perfect for my tastes. I don’t like my cider overly dry, and up until now I hadn’t had one with satisfactory tartness.
The only place I’ve heard mention of the stuff being sold is in Medford (Kappy’s liquors?) If anyone has heard tell of Strongbow on the shelves south of Boston and east of Newport, I’d really like to hear about it. And I’d rather not have to cross an ocean, either.
