Did you know that women and men both like hard cider equally, whereas beer is preferred overwhelmingly by men? Or that hard cider is carbonated, and best consumed in fall? Well this infographic is here to teach you all that and more, but did you also know that you have to click through to see it? Now you do! 

I spent last week in Paris, and while that required me to drink a lot of French wine, I made one important exception. If you’re into food and have a pulse, one of the most important stops in Paris is Breizh Café in the Marais, where one of the best food/drink pairings I’ve ever come across is served. It’s simple, really: you order a galette — a savory, buckwheat crêpe that I like to order “complète,” or with ham, emmental cheese and a sunnyside up egg — and a hard cider from Normandy or Brittany. 

While I was away, lo and behold, a US-based hard cider company called Angry Orchard dropped us a line and offered to share a new infographic they created to help publicize their line of ciders. They also came up with recipes for using hard ciders in dishes like a slow cooked pork shank, and in cocktails. You can read up on all this on AngryOrchard.com. Me, I’ll stick to my hard cider with a galette. Sounds like dinner tonight!
