Dedicated to the freaks and the geeks!

What started as a top-secret experiment with Michigan honey, cherries and apple cider became a viral epidemic.

It won’t be easy to survive, so grab your weapons and don’t forget this bottle for backup! Serve cold… zombies hate the cold….

Zombie Killer

Hard cider with honey and cherry added

Essential elements- Apple, cherry

Appearance - Deep pink and clear with a light, lacy head that quickly dissipates.

Aroma - Crisp, clean apple cider, round, ripe tart cherry.

Experience - Tart cherry sweetness up front with full, yet crisp fermented cider. Heavy apple skin compliments the cherry. Sweet, creamy honey rounds the flavor and balances the tartness of the cherry. Light carbonation lifts the flavor while the honey smooths the overall mouthfeel. Finishes crisp and clean.


Type: Cider

Alcohol: 5.5%

Package: 500ml bottles and 1/6 barrel kegs.

Food Pairings:

Compliments many rich, fatty foods like bacon, barbecue, burgers, avocado and high-fat blue cheeses. Also pairs well with sweet foods like ice cream and cake/cupcakes.
