NOMAD Cidery

Our third stop of the day was at NOMAD Cidery. We’ve tried a few of their ciders before so checking out their tasting room was a no brainer.

We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (around 3:15pm). There’s a cute spacious backyard area with 5 picnic tables.

There’s a trampoline on the opposite side. Not sure if you can use it haha.

Awesome that you can bring out your flight to enjoy outside. The inside tasting room is small but quaint. Our server was friendly and extremely knowledgeable on all their products.

Closeup of a few of their cider bottles and cans. Their bottles range from $6.00 to $25.00. You can also get grunts and growlers.

9 ciders available to sample. You can get a flight of four or individually; it doesn’t matter because each pour is $2.00. Very reasonable as each is about a 2oz pour.

We went with a flight and added an extra sample to it.

Maple bourbon and white barrel
DSC03450More on the semi-dry side. Quite light and the maple is subtle. You get a hint of the mix of wines that are from the barrel (pinot gris, chardonnay and another I can’t recall).

Sparkling sagardo and Keeved
DSC03451This is a white barrel aged, Spanish style sour cider. She said it was similar to a sour beer but we didn’t find it too soury. The keeved was our favourite of the bunch. They use a French technique where they stop the fermentation process so that there are residual sugars left. A slightly sweet, smooth and well balanced cider.

Ice cider
DSC03459Similar to an ice wine. Sweet but not as sweet compared to an ice wine.

Definitely worth a stop if you’re a cider fan, especially if you’re into drier ciders.
