Memberships for Cideries

TESTIMONIAL to join:

“As one of the founding members of the NWCA, Finnriver Cidery remains committed to supporting the organization with both membership dues as well as by participating on multiple levels including membership on the Board of Directors.  We feel strongly that the Association continues to work effectively to promote cider in the NW and to promote NW Cider more broadly, for the benefit of all of its members.  While obviously still in its formative stages, the NWCA is far ahead of any other regional cider association in the country in terms of organization, cohesiveness, and implementation of projects to benefit members in the industry.

The list of initiatives continues to grow:

  • Specific public events and state-wide cider weeks to promote cider
  • Marketing and media opportunities to showcase cider and NW Producers
  • Lobbying efforts to change legislation
  • Specific projects such as the Toolkit and State of the Industry Survey
  • Grants to support research and educational efforts for the public as well as cidermakers themselves
  • Member meetings and our google group to disseminate information and provide platforms for valuable peer to peer coaching and cooperation

As the industry continues to grow, the NWCA is poised to be in position to grow along with it and will continue to help promote quality internally among its members, putting substance behind the promotion of excellence to the public.  The continued growth of the NWCA will help ensure that the NW Region solidifies its growing reputation as a hub of cider consumption and more importantly as the epicenter of high-quality cider-production, collaboration, and cooperation amongst and between cider producers.  Join us today!”
