If you want something different to drink, Point Brewery has a new product line out this week. It's Cider Boy's Cider Company.

Gabe Hopkins from Point Brewery says the new line of beverages are flavored hard ciders with a 5 percent alcohol content.  He says, "We took a traditional hard cider and we tried to take the approach where it was a fruitful pairing that along with the sharp and tart flavor profile of the apple, it's also a complimentary fruit or spicing that goes with it."There are four flavors. Traditional, Cranberry Road, Mad Bark Apple Cinnamon, and Magic Apple which is a blend of apple and strawberries.

Hopkins says the first batch of the new products has been shipped, and you should be able to find them on the shelf now.  "It was just released last week from the brewery here.  It is currently in distribution, and should be at most of your local retail and chain stores.”Hopkins says all of their products are produced and packaged at the Stevens Point Brewery. When asked how they produce so many products in a limited amount of space, Hopkins said, “Sometimes, we have to get very creative.”
