About Cellar Selections

Cellar Selection is a designation for wines or beers that our tasting panels feel will improve with proper aging in climate-controlled conditions, like a wine cellar or basement. 

For beers, the Cellar Selection is given for bottle-conditioned beers whose high complexity and maltiness will integrate and mellow with six-months-to-two-years of cellaring in a refrigerator or cool basement. In particular, many imperial or “extreme beers” with highly elevated hop and malt levels can round out nicely with exaggerated hoppiness receding into a more balanced, savorable flavor profile.

Best Cellar Selections For Ciders

Angry Orchard Ice Man Hard Cider
92 points
Old gold color. Sweet aromas of dark honey and pickled mango with a round, vibrant, effervescent, sweet medium-to-full body and a complex, medium-long peaches and apricots in honey, lychee, ripe melons with lime, tamarind, mandarins in syrup, and black tea finish. A concentrated and vibrant Ice Cider-like treat that will be a great after-dinner conversation starter.
