Ingleside has its own hard cider starting this week.

Cans of Inglecider will be available for purchase at local beer bar and restaurant Ocean Ale House starting today.

Inglecider is a hard pear cider, known as perry,” co-blended with apples.

“This is a dry, smooth and crushable beverage that accentuates the fruity profiles of a lush ripe pear and tart ripe apple,” said Miles Escobedo, co-owner of Ocean Ale House.

Inglecider is made exclusively for Ocean Ale House by Mission Trail Ranches in Bradley, California. Mission Trail makes ciders, fruit wines and jerkums, which are fruit wines made from stone fruit such as peaches or nectarines.

Ocean Ale House regularly carries Mission Trail products, which are a favorite of Ingleside artist and Ocean Ale House server Neil Ballard, who drew the unique label art for the Inglecider cans.

“I’m a cider aficionado, and I love how Mission Trail uses a wide variety of high-quality fruit to expand the notion of what a cider or fruit wine can be,” Ballard said.

“I’ve always said there’s nothing like getting a little fruit-drunk in the sun, and now with Inglecider, you can get fruit-drunk in the fog!” Ballard added.
