Ommegang yeast in Nine Pin's latest cider

Co-op beverage creations seem to be popping up everywhere.

I recently wrote about several collaborations between breweries in New York State and counterparts in two southern states. But, closer to home the latest product is a new hard cider that’s a three-county local effort.

The product, called The Lion’s Share, is manufactured under the label of Nine Pin Cider Works of Albany from a blend of apples from Samascott Orchards of Kinderhook, Columbia County, that is fermented with a proprietary Belgian yeast from Brewery Ommegang of Oneonta, Otsego County.

The Lion’s Share debuted this week at Nine Pin’s tasting room, 929 Broadway, at a suggested retail price of $12.99 for a four-pack of 12-ounce cans.
