Our featured brewery this month is Bivouac Cider Works, located in San Diego County. They like to say their cider was “Born in San Diego”. The name Bivouac pronounced (biv-oo-ak) means a temporary camp without tents or cover, used especially by mountaineers.
ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
The founders of Bivouac definitely consider themselves outdoor adventurists first and foremost. Whether that be climbing, surfing, hiking, camping, mountain biking or fly fishing….collectively they share a love for nature and the outdoors. They also are advocates of a clean and healthy environment, social justice reform and supporting their favorite charitable organizations. They, like their ciders, go “off trail”. They definitely would rather explore the unknown in life and in their ciders, rather than follow the well-worn path.
ABOUT THE CIDER
Bivouac’s ciders take inspiration from “cider culture” around the world. These unique ciders are hand-crafted in-house and blended with what they call the “adventure and the spirit of the West Coast.” Taps are constantly rotating, and there is always an R&D line in-the-works. Their ciders are considered to be less sweet than traditional ciders, and they feature both classic ciders and their exciting twists to the norm. Always naturally gluten-free and always delicious…the goal is that for each sip you take, your taste buds will be ignited, escape the ordinary and embrace your own adventure!
At El Toro Gourmet Meats, we are proud to feature
four-of these exciting and unique ciders. Come on in
for one or all four and let us know what you think.
Floral, tannic, vanilla. Like strolling
through the orchard as Summer turns to
Fall, and crisp pears ripen in the warm sun.
Aeromatic, hint of spice dry finish.
Late summer strawberries, blend with
sweet & spicy ginger in this flavorful tonic.
Sweet, juicy, tropical Summer cider!
Reminds you of that feeling when the sun
sets on a perfect Summer day and the
ocean breeze cools your sunkissed skin!
TRUE LOVER’S ROSE
This cider is for wine lovers! It is the perfect
blend of dry Rosé, Riesling and Cab with our
pear apple cider to add a hint of flavor and fizz.
A little higher abv than our usual ciders.
