Professor Plum Cider

Professor Plum

When 16 Tons Taphouse asked us if we wanted to make a collaborative cider, we knew we were going to have fun. The Eugene crew drove up north and helped us make an exciting cider. We sat at the brewery bar and removed pits from wild and Italian plums for the better part of a day and added them to brandy barrels. We also added cardamom, vanilla beans, and we filled the barrels with our cider. Finally we inoculated the barrels with two Brettanomyces strains to give some funky and extra citrus flavors. The cider is highly complex yet easily quaffable.


We’ll have Professor Plum on tap at 16 Tons this Thursday. In fact, we’re taking over all 18 taps, so it’s basically a pop up pub, and our brew team will be at the taphouse all night. Here’s the full list:
