Saints Row to Release Cider Barrel Inspired Beer This Friday

Beginning this Friday, Saints Row Brewing’s latest offering Sidraxata, a Cider Barrel inspired brew, will be available exclusively at their brewery in Rockville.

This is the 3rd Montgomery County themed beer they have released, the other two being Montgomery Brewnuts and Jimmi’d (Jimmie Cone).

From Saints Row:
“As we continue down memory lane, we pay homage to the historic cider barrel.

We took our horchata oat ale and added a dash of caramel malts for enhanced warmth and toffee.

Conditioned with toasted almond, vanilla, and cinnamon.

Aged in apple brandy oak.

A comforting apple-cinnamon spice and Oak leap from the glass. Soft caramel and vanilla, with a lingering Oak finish.”

The Cider Barrel is still expected to reopen this year, but has been delayed due to the pandemic.

Below is information regarding the restoration and reopening of the Cider Barrel, courtesy of Kareb Adjei:

The Cider Barrel sits on Frederick Road, or Route 355, in front of The Elms, a large apartment complex that houses 316 garden-style apartments (data from CBG Building Company). Currently, the historic structure is boarded up; its only noticeable activity is elementary-school-aged children waiting for the school bus on weekday mornings, pre-COVID-19. However, the abandoned attraction often picks the interest of people passing by. It was noticeable enough to get Laura Richman, a local entrepreneur, to spearhead a new restoration project for the site. “It’s been sitting vacant for a long time. I wanted to see it open, and one day it dawned on me that I had the ability to do it. I wanted to do it, so why don’t I go ahead?”. Richman has been working with Elm Street Development, which currently maintains the Cider Barrel and apartment complex, for months to restore the property to its original condition. In late March of 2020, theyreached an agreement to kick-start the restoration processand preserve an important landmark of Germantown history.
