Blake’s Hard Cider to Release ‘Black Phillip’ on August 1


Armada, MI – Live life deliciously. That’s what Blake’s Hard Cider is asking us all to do with their newest seasonal release, Black Phillip. The newest creation from Blake’s has infused blood orange and cranberry with Blake Farms apples into what might be their best cider to date.

“This is the best God da*m cider America has ever seen,” said Andrew Blake, founder of Blake’s Hard Cider. “Just kidding, but this is my personal favorite cider we’ve made to date and the 12oz can our marketing team put together is unreal. I think it’s going to kick ass.”

This is Blake’s third new seasonal cider they’ve created this year alone. If the success of their spring seasonal, Tonic, and summer seasonal, Aurora, give any indication of how it will taste and be received, Black Phillip is sure to impress.

“So I don’t remember much from that fateful night,” mumbled Robert Lauer, Cidermaster at Blake’s Hard Cider. “Other than the full moon, a silvery voice and the sound of a jingling spur. It wasn’t so much a conversation, but I recall the words ‘cranberry and blood orange’ and ‘seeing the world.’ I think something was taken from me that night that I fear shan’t return cause of something about his book, and it’s been stranger ever since Black Phillip came into our lives.”

Black Phillip will be available August 1 to Blake’s Hard Cider distributor partners in Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Kansas in 12oz six-pack cans, 22oz bottles, 1/6 bbl & ½ bbl kegs. Select bottle shops and grocery chains will carry Black Phillip in cans and bottles.
