•New York state’s Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards has entered the cider category with the launch of Hazlitt’s Cider Tree. A semi-dry, 6.6%-abv offering made with locally-sourced apples, Cider Tree is available in 12-ounce bottled four-packs retailing at $7.99 and single 750-ml. bottles retailing at $9.99. Hazlitt’s Cider Tree is slated to begin rolling out across select liquor, grocery and convenience stores, with nationwide availability expected to follow. The new cider joins Hazlitt 1852’s existing portfolio, which includes the Red Cat, White Cat, Bramble Berry and Cabin Fever wine labels, among others.

•St. Paul, Minnesota-based Summit Brewing Co. has debuted Southern Cape, the latest entry in its limited edition Union Series. Inspired by traditional sparkling ales from South Australia, Southern Cape is made using an Australian yeast strain, as well New Zealand and South African hops and Chilean and Australian malts. The result is a lower-alcohol, 4.4%-abv offering, characterized by pineapple and mango aromas. Southern Cape marks the third expression in the Union Series, which features brews produced with relatively obscure ingredients and traditional techniques. Summit Brewing, which also produces seven year-round and five seasonal beers, has a current footprint of 18 states.
