Featuring 50+ elegantly crafted ciders from producers in Washington, Oregon, British Columbia, California, England, and
France, this year’s event will also feature Spain’s Basque Region. Other new features for 2012 include live music and a “bottles to go” store onsite. The owners and cidermakers will be on hand to inform and guide guests through the samplings, which will be available in 3-ounce and 6-ounce pours.
In addition to the superb range of ciders, the event will feature food from SE Portland’s Ya Hala restuarant, ongoing demonstrations of apple pressing courtesy of Bushwhacker, and non-alcoholic beverages from Maletis Beverage.
