We love beer. That's why we're devoting an entire year to discovering (and drinking) cold ones from near and far. Know of a beer worth shouting out? Send us a note at tips@philadelphiaweekly.com.

One of the adult beverage categories showing the most impressive growth the last couple of years have been ciders. Made from fermented apples and often incorporating other fruits, they’ve become hugely popular among those who want something crisp and refreshing. You don’t need to move away from beer to get that, though. In Ephemere, Canada’s Unibroue, long one of the best brewers in the world, have a fantastic beer brewed with apples that both beer lovers and cider lovers are likely to enjoy. The aroma fills your nose with green apples and sour wheat. Briskly carbonated, this brew explodes in your mouth with touches of spice, yeast, wild grasses, and of course, more sour green apples. The finish is crisp, a touch bitter, and ever so slightly tart. And most of all, it’s utterly refreshing. Don’t believe beer can compete with cider? See for yourself at The Pour House Westmont and The Pour House Exton.
