Last Wednesday at Oak Tavern in Wynwood, Stella Artois held the Miami launch party for its new Stella Artois Cidre, a European-style cider made with apples hand-picked from wine growing regions. The event was hosted by Master Sommelier Marc Stroobandt who was there to casually direct folks to pairing the Cidre and some Cidre-based Cocktails with a bunch of cured Meats, Cheeses and finger foods. I was not able to make it but I was able to get you a list of the foods, drinks and some pictures for good measure. You’re welcome.
