Florida – Ciders and Mead at The Spillover

7News – WSVN-TV

Mom was right: don’t cry over spilled milk. And at The Spillover in Coconut Grove, you aren’t going to cry over anything.

The Spillover in Coconut Grove is spilling over with yummy goodness.

Matthew Kuscher, The Spillover: “We are the first cider and mead bar in Miami.”

Here is alcohol 101.

Matthew Kuscher: “Spanish-style ciders or American ciders are made with apples different ways, different processes, and we have them all. Meads are more like honey wines.”

You drink cider before your meal, and it goes great with seafood.

Matthew Kuscher: “There are all different kinds of ciders. We serve European ciders; they are funky, stinky, smelly. They open your palate.”

Funky and stinky aren’t usually selling points … until now.

Matthew Kuscher: “Just like caviar or blue cheese, once you give it a chance, you get it once, twice, a third or fourth time. You are going to start craving it.”

As for meads…

Matthew Kuscher: “Our meads, on the other hand, are more a digestive, and more of a finisher.”

Meads also have more alcohol.

Matthew Kuscher: “It’s something you don’t want to drink too much of, which is why we do smaller pours of them.”
