The single best method for drinkers to experience the thrill of real, craft cider is finding themselves in a situation where they are confronted with a plethora of such drinks. And the single best way for craft cider producers to migrate the casual consumer of commercial apple-based alcohol to consumers of craft cider is to participate in opportunities where the consumer is given access to many such gems.
The Cider Summits are the best example in the country of just such an event.

The fifth annual Portland Cider Summit event will take place Friday, June 19 from 2pm-8pm and Saturday, June 20 from 12 Noon-6pm. CLICK TO RESERVE TICKETS.
