Hi, Anyone know where I can get pear cider in Los Angeles? I tried one in NYC and now I am completely hooked.

  1. i had a great pear cider at Sonny McLean's in santa monica. warning: (or not) it is a sports bar for boston fans - which i am not.

    1. I had a bottled one that was quite nice at the Village Idiot a couple of months ago.

      1. You should be able to find it at Bevmo and Whole Foods.

        1. While you're at it, be sure to throw in a dash of Poire William.

          1. Do you men hard cider, also known as Perry? Or just pear juice?

            For hard cider, look for Wyders, on tap at places lie Naja's, BJ's, Lucky Baldwin's, McG's, Village Idiot, Robin Hood, maybe Ye Olde King's Head.

            Wyders is from Canada. Brother's is another brand from Britain. Doc's makes a sparkling pear cider. Woodchusk also makes pear cider.

            The California Cider COmpany makes a nice one you can sometimes find-it's known as Ace apple, or pear cider. Look in the places mentioned above, or the liquor stores listed below.

            If you want bottles to take home, try Beverages and More or Vendome.

            Remember to also look for "perry"
