Cidermakers Announce the Fourth Annual Oregon Cider Week. Celebrate the Northwest’s most exciting beverage with tastings, tap take-overs, cider dinners, and more.
The Northwest Cider Association (NWCA) has announced the third annual Oregon Cider Week, a 10-day celebration of craft cider.
Cidermakers in the Northwest have a lot to celebrate. Several of regional cideries have won national and international awards for their traditional dry ciders and perrys, while new blends featuring black currants, hops, lavender and quince are giving cider fans plenty of unusual flavors to enjoy. Nationally, cider continues to be the fastest-growing segment of the beverage market. Hard cider, crafted from apples with the same careful attention that wine is developed from grapes, is naturally gluten-free, and makes use of fruit varieties that date back hundreds of years.
Dozens of separate activities and special menu items are planned throughout the state of Oregon. Reservations are strongly encouraged for some events, such as the Northwest Cider Summit and cidermaker dinners.
