My new pub favourite!
I went off beer a couple of years ago and cider has neatly replaced it as my refreshing drink of choice. There are some pretty average ciders out there, but there's just as many really interesting ciders, you just need to hunt them down (and pay a bit of a premium).
Pear cider can be hard to find here in Hobart. I love St Helier's, and now Magners have recently released their pear cider in Australia. It's great - not quite as smooth as St Helier's, but still completely drinkable!
