We recently revisited Great Society Cider & Mead, Southern California’s first all-cider pub located on Broadway at the edge of Downtown Long Beach. We initially discovered them as part of DINE LBC – Long Beach Restaurant Week in 2017.
They are now an integral part of the new Beach City Food Tours’ East Village Cocktail Tour. Great Society serves an unusual selection of rotating draft ciders and meads in addition to the expected craft beers.
“A social house where fine food, craft cider and mead set the stage for conversations between old and new friends alike, Great Society has the largest selection of craft cider and meads in all of Southern California. Featuring 28 draughts and more in bottles, our extensive cider and mead list showcases craft producers from nearly every corner of the world. You’ll find flavors and profiles ranging from sweet to sour, still to sparkling, barrel-aged to hopped, rare to near-impossible to find.”
We’ll revisit the proprietor, Otto Radtke.
