So it’s not a beer, but a cider feels appropriate for fall. Back in January, owner Rob Miller put a base cider made with Roxbury Russet and Redfield apples in rum barrels from Washington’s Cotton & Reed Distillery. The aged result is a tart, fruit-with-a-kick drink highlighted by spice notes from the rum barrels. “It’s got a nice bite to it,” Miller said. “It’s meant to be easy drinking.” Try it at the Jefferson cider house on weekends, or on draft at Baltimore bars such as the Sandlot and the Brass Tap in a few weeks, Miller said. 7 percent ABV. distillerylaneciderworks.com.
