Minneapolis is no stranger to microbreweries but this past November a new taproom added a twist to the craft brew trend sweeping the city. Sociable Cider Werks recently opened in Nordeast Minneapolis; a neighborhood with an already established reputation for taprooms and craft beer. Sociable is a cider house offering deliciously crafted beers as well as apple graffs (a mixture of beer wort and cider). My sister is new to the area and loves cider so we thought we would try er’ out. I usually steer clear of ciders, not being a fan of sweeter drinks, but I was surprisingly pleased with both of the graffs they had available. After a few pints of cider, we decided to swing by Indeed Brewing Company and 612 Brew, two other breweries in the Minneapolis Brew District. I had the seasonal Stir Crazy Winter Ale at Indeed and Rated R IPA at 612 Brew. Both hit the spot!
