This party will celebrate not only the industry and NW cidermakers, but also the unveiling of the winners of the the 5th annual Portland International Cider Cup, which was held on Sunday, April 9. Over 160 ciders were judged by 45 judges, and gold medals were awarded in 8 of the 14 categories. Come dressed to impress, as the trophy for best dressed will switch hands, along with the Cup which spent the last year in Darby, MT with 2016 winner, Montana Ciderworks. This is one of the only cider awards ceremonies in the nation, exclusive to only 200 invites, including industry, media and civic leaders.
The party will be held at Portland Cider Company's Clackamas location; tickets will be available to purchase in early May.
