If you’re not familiar with ciders you may be thinking, Paula that looks like a beer and wondering How is cider different from beer? Well I’m glad you asked … “The brewing process for cider follows that of beer, with the main difference being the ingredients used: cider uses apples, while barley and hops are generally the main ingredients for beer. Michelob ULTRA Light Cider is made with all-natural ingredients, including apples, and is naturally sweetened with stevia.”

“As more people continue to discover cider, we’ve found that many view traditional ciders as either too heavy, too sweet or both,”” said Ryan Moore, vice president of premium lights, Anheuser-Busch. “”This perception has often times limited ciders to a seasonal beverage during fall and winter, but we saw an untapped potential to expand the category as a year-round option. Michelob ULTRA Light Cider fills this void with a lower calorie cider with a milder, but distinct, sweetness that can be enjoyed straight or over ice.””
