Angry Orchard, a brand of The Boston Beer Co., announced the addition of a new year-round specialty hard cider: Walden Hollow. The first Angry Orchard cider exclusively made from New York State-sourced apples, Walden Hollow includes Golden Russet, Newton Pippen and Northern Spy heirloom apples. The 8 percent alcohol-by-volume hard cider is fermented for many months, resulting in a full flavor and an intense apple aroma from the high acidity and milk tannins of the heirloom apples, the company says. Walden Hollow will be re-released annually in the spring and will be made using a blend of New York apple varieties selected by the company’s cider makers based on the previous year’s harvest, it adds. Packaged in 750-ml bottles, Walden Hollow has a suggested retail price between $14.99 and $17.99.
