The third annual event expands to two days – Friday, June 21 from 3p-8p and Saturday, June 22 from 12n-6p. Cider Summit will once again be at Elizabeth Caruthers Park in the emerging South Waterfront neighborhood near the Portland Aerial Tram. The event is presented by Barbur World Foods & Bushwhacker Cider.
This will be the seventh Cider Summit produced by SBS & Seattle Beer Collective, having launched the concept in Seattle in September 2010 and expanding to Portland and Chicago over the last two years. Each event features 60+ elegantly crafted ciders from producers in Washington, Oregon, British Columbia, California, Michigan, England, France and Spain..
New for 2013 is the addition of a “dog lounge” hosted by DoveLewis, bicycle valet from Go by Bike, a Cider Summit weekend hotel package from The Westin Portland,
and expanded food selections. Cider Summit will also feature a
collectible tasting glass this year, replacing the plastic stemware used
in previous events. The event will continue to feature live music
and a “bottles to go” store onsite.
