Cider

Sweet or dry, sparking or still, cider is a broad style that’s closely related to beer in technique and often in one main ingredient: yeast. Generally, ciders are fruit-based fermentables (usually apple or pear), and often use American or English ale yeasts, but sometimes champagne or other yeasts instead or in addition. Perhaps there are more cultural ties than technical ones between beer and cider production/enjoyment, but the line is blurring as brewers continue to bridge the gap with hopped ciders, partial malt ciders, and the like.
