Dutch cider.

There is no cider tradition in the Netherlands, so we thought we start one. We want the Dutch, and for that matter anyone, to be able to enjoy real tasty cider. In our view cider is made from 100% freshly pressed juice, not from concentrate and water. We believe that anyone should be able to enjoy real cider, our cider, made in The Netherlands. That is the simple missions of Bear Cider. We start the tradition!

Bear Cider was born on the estate of Beerze in Beerze (Ov.), a small town in the east of The Netherlands, hence the name: beer is the Dutch word for bear, not for beer! Bear Cider is made from apple juice from carefully selected apples and yeasts. It has a well balanced taste, because we use various apples in our own secret recipe: sharps, sweets and bitters.  Production follows the seasons: after harvest in fall the apples are pressed and fermentation and maturation takes place in the cold winter. In spring the cider is blended and then bottled and ready for you. 

Bear Cider not only tastes great (we think, but we have won prestigious awards too, so others must like it too! ), it also is a natural product that contains relatively few calories and is gluten free. We love apples and cider. And we love to have you taste our product!
