OK, so you’re a cider, I’m a cider, that’s terrific.

But this is not just any cider. This is The Dude’s Rug. For a spiced chai cider, it really chai’d the room together.

Amateurs could not pull off the perfect blend of black tea with cardamom, clove, cinnamon and ginger. They’d be out of their element.

So, if you want to be an achiever, drink this cider and abide.

Nobody messes with the B.

Phone’s ringin’ Dude.

The Dude’s Rug is 100% Gluten Free.

The Dude's Rug

Hard cider with tea and Chai spices

Appearance - Dark amber and clear with a foamy white head that dissipates into a thin white rim.

Experience - Sweet, baked apples followed by a vivid blend of clove and cardamom. Black tea rounds out the flavor and leaves little to no tannin. Medium-bodied with a crisp, red apple skin aftertaste.

The Dude's Rug really Chai'd the room together.
