The 6%-abv cider is medium dry with flavors of caramel and dark fruit and a bright tart acidity, according to the cidermaker.

•Detroit, Michigan-based Atwater Brewery has debuted First Brown, a new beer that celebrates the beginning of the fall fishing season. The 6%-abv ale is brewed with traditional English hops and malts, for a low-bitterness beer that, according to the brewery, finishes dry and malty. The label was designed by artist Derek DeYoung and depicts a swimming brown trout. The beer is now available in Michigan in 12-ounce bottles with cans following next spring. A portion of all sales will benefit Trout Unlimited, a coldwater fishing preservation society.Subscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
