FAQs About Hard Pear Cider

Perry and hard pear cider both use pears, but they aren't the same drink. Hard pear cider often uses apple cider and may include pear juice or varieties of pears that people might eat raw. Perry, however, does not use apple or pear juice, and it only includes Perry pears. These pears are hard and acidic before brewing, but they produce a nuanced flavor profile after they're fermented.

Hard pear cider is sweeter than Perry because of the apple cider base and the sweetness of the added pears. Perry, however, tastes a bit lighter and has a more refreshing taste.

Hard pear cider tends to be a bit sweeter unless you opt for a dry cider, so look for foods that pair well with a sweeter drink, such as:
  • Chicken dishes, including chicken Caesar salad or roasted chicken
  • Pork-based dishes, such as pork chops, bacon, or ham
  • Fruit salads or fruit tarts, particularly those that incorporate any added flavors in your hard pear cider
  • Panna cotta
  • Seafood, including salmon or oysters
  • Mildly spicy foods, such as mild Indian dishes
  • Camembert or cheddar cheese

Some beer lists do include hard ciders, but they are not the same type of drink. Both of them are fermented, but the methods used to create them are vastly different. Beer is brewed with hops and malt, while hard ciders use fermented fruit juices as their base. Some beers may use fruit to add a different type of flavor, but they don't use fruit to produce the alcohol in beer, and hard ciders don't include hops or malt in the fermentation process.

Some brewers are experimenting with adding hop scents or flavors to hard ciders, but they don't add malt to these beverages and don't use hops during the brewing process of this new style of hard ciders.
