The 4th annual Cider Summit Seattle takes place this Friday and Saturday at The South Lake Union Discovery Park. Rumor on the street is that this will be the single largest gathering of artisan ciders in recorded history. That sounds rather dramatic, but until someone can disprove the assertion, I’m sticking with it.
We are giving away a pair of tickets to the event. All you need to do to qualify for the random drawing is leave a comment here on the blog or on the Washington Beer Blog Facebook page telling us which cider producer is your favorite. Or just tell us why you love cider in general. We’ll pick a winner at random on Thursday morning.
At the event, over 100 different ciders will be poured. Producers will be on hand to answer your questions. Here are more details about the event:
Friday, September 6 from 3:00 to 8:00
Saturday, September 7 from noon to 6:00.
