OSU Craft Cidery Startup Workshop


  • Widmer Brothers 929 North Russell Street Portland, OR, 97227 United States

Along with the rise of micro breweries and distilleries, cider is experiencing growing popularity and the cider industry is seeing increased demand for more flavors and styles of cider. Changing laws and regulations around the United States have made small cideries a feasible option and the cider market is ready for fresh and innovative home recipes.

If you are dreaming of opening your own cidery, join the Craft Cidery Startup Workshop to learn the logistics of starting your own craft cider business!

Taught by seasoned cider industry practitioners, the workshop will walk you through the basics of: business planning, understanding market feasibility, ingredient sourcing and equipment, local and national regulations, raising capital, distribution and marketing.

You’ll gain entrepreneurial insight from exclusive access to local cidery founders through presentations and field trips that would be possible nowhere other than Portland.
