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
