Boston Beer Co has released details of a new year-round variant for its Angry Orchard cider range. 

Angry Orchard Green Apple is initially being launched as a limited edition in the US, before a national roll-out early next year, the company said today (24 September). It coincides with the launch of another seasonal variant, Cinnful Apple, revealed last month

"We searched for apples from specific regions in the US that share characteristics with European apple blends we've traditionally used, paying homage to our original cider-making techniques while introducing new and exciting hard ciders," said David Sipes, Angry Orchard's cider maker.

The US cider market is showing strong growth. Latest IRI data reveals that category sales were up 223% in the 13 weeks to mid-August, the company flagged.
