Mark your calendar and save the date – Friday, June 5th and Saturday, June 6th. Time for the PNWCA Cider Festival in Seattle. Sure, this blog focuses on beer, but these days craft cider is so akin to craft beer that we cannot help ourselves.
The 2nd Annual Pacific Northwest Cider Awards (PNWCA) will once again include a corresponding consumer-facing event: the PNWCA Cider Festival. Expect more than 45 ciders from more than 30 Northwest cider producers.
The event takes place at Seattle Cider Company, in the brand new taproom which it shares with its sister company, Two Beer Brewing Company. See, it’s a family thing. Although, this is a 21+ event. The new Woods taproom promises to be bigger and better than the current space and they are busily readying the new spot for this event.
With 25+ ciders on tap at any given moment, this event affords local cider geeks the opportunity to savor specialty and limited edition ciders from the region’s best producers. One of popular food trucks—Bread and Circuses—will be on site for your dining pleasure.
The cost of admission includes a 13-ounce PNWCA tulip glass and eight tasting tokens, each good for a 5-ounce pour. A 10-ounce pour will cost you two tokens. Festivalgoers will also be allowed to vote for a Peoples Choice winner, which will be announce following the event.
Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.
