Lost Giants Cider Company has been on my radar to try for the last few months. Finally made it out to their cidery when we were in Bellingham for a day trip.
Hours. Note: closed on Monday and Tuesday.
We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (around 3:15pm) and there were some customers inside hanging out. The place is spacious with a few tables and stools along both the bar and walls. Music is chill (heard some Dope Lemon being played) which goes perfectly with the relaxed vibes here.
Six packs ($11.00 US) were reasonably priced.
There’s 10 cider flavours available on tap (a couple staples and seasonals).
Menu with cider descriptions and a few snack options. They also offered two beers (from Kulshan Brewing Co.).
Closeup of their cider taps and coaster.
There’s some merchandise (growlers, glassware, shirts, caps, beanies and stickers).
A few games that you can play (cribbage, puzzle and trivia).
A couple small signs displayed on their tables.
Water is self serve by the entrance.
Flight ($8.00 US for 4)
We went with the pineapple, aronia berry, rose and jalapeno-cucumber cider.
Our favourite of the five that we sampled was the rose; refreshing, smooth and tasty.
Pineapple was dry; you get the pineapple flavour but it’s not juicy (if that makes sense).
Never seen aronia berry used in a cider before (we were told it’s similar to black currant). This one was okay but we didn’t find it to be very tart.
The jalapeno-cucumber was interesting; you get a sprinkling of heat with a touch of cucumber.
Wouldn’t say the chili/heat is the best we’ve had in a cider (Finnriver’s habanero cider comes to mind).
Red grapefruit infused dry cider ($2.00 US)
This is a good one for summer. Grapefruit, while subtle, come through.
I liked the friendly and chill vibes at LG. Their ciders won’t blow you away but they’re easy to drink.
