If you're a beer fan, you already know about the explosive growth of the craft industry. But often overlooked amidst the bevy of beverage options available is the craft cider, beer's apple-centric distant cousin. A long-time favorite of drinkers in northern Europe, cider is making quite the comeback in the United States, growing by leaps and bounds in recent years. And first on the Chicago scene is Broken Nose Cider Company, currently being made at Begyle Brewing. Founder Paul Cade has brought dry, European-style cider to the Windy City. One thing's for sure — this is unlike any cider we've had before–and that's a great thing.
