    OMG....I had a "Woodpecker" draft cidar in the United Kingdom in Epcot.....so good! I only drink cidar now (not much of a drinker anyhow). Has anyone else feel in love with something as result of thier trip to Disney World?

    I went so far as having my local (Maryland - USA) liquor store order Woodpecker cidar.

    Every time I drink a Woodpecker - it takes me back.....Illuminations, vacation, no worries....ahhhh! -Steve

    I love Woodpecker - it's a nice sweet cider and I have a sweet tooth! Fortunately though I only have to go to my local grocer store to get my supply - a 2 minute drive ;)

    Things I like which I only get in the States so always associate with my trips is Hershey Honey & Almond Nuggets, Bacardi Silver & Krispy Kremes :)

    Bass Ale. Not that I can only get it at the Rose and Crown, but that is the only place I'll drink it. It was what I drank at my very first visit and just says celebration to me! :D

    Pints darlin', cider comes in pints - or halves. It is not like the apple cider you can pickup at the farmers market. It comes in sweet (like Woodpecker) or drier (Strongbow or Scrumpy Jack) -yum Scrumpy is my favorite! - You get get cider in practically any pub in the UK... the pub usually has at least one cider on tap.

    Enjoy :tongue:

    Yes hard cider is alcoholic. It is so yummy!! I fell in love with this drink about 5 years ago after watching a show on the food channel. There is one sweeter then Woodpecker but I can't remember the name. Thanks for letting us know the UK has it. I am not much of a drinker but I will get one when I am in Epcot.

    However, a pint of cidar with all the Epcot/UK atmosphere...aaahhhh....I can't wait! 4 weeks from right now!

    It tastes like sweet apple juice. And yes, this type of cidar is HARD. It will hit you harder than a beer or even ale.

    Ahhhh....the Cidar of Epcot.

    As I recall - it was $5 a pint and I got mine at the fish and chips take out which is on the water side of UK near the bridge that takes you to BCV, YC, and Boardwalk. Enjoy! - Steve
