Cider is a fermented alcoholic beverage made from the unfiltered juice of apples. Cider alcohol content varies, generally, between 3% and 8.5%, but some continental cider goes to 12% alcohol .

As cider doesn’t contain malt or hops, it’s clear that the only thing that beer and hard cider (fermented apple juice) have in common is fermentation, thanks to our yeasty friends.
