PRESS RELEASE: Passage of CIDER Act in Senate Finance Committee

The United States Association of Cider Makers Announces Passage of CIDER Act in Senate Finance Committee

The federal legislation aimed at assisting the growth of the industry now awaits action on Senate floor.

Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 26, 2015

The United States Association of Cider Makers (USACM), the national trade association of the cider industry, is pleased to announce that the CIDER Act, federal legislation aimed at assisting the growth of hard cider in the United States, has passed the Senate Finance Committee and is now awaiting action on the Senate floor. This is the first step in bringing reform to the existing laws governing the making of hard cider, which are outdated and hindering American competition in this industry.

"On behalf of entire United States cider industry, I want to thank Senator Schumer (D-NY) for his persistence in bringing the CIDER Act for an initial vote in the Senate Finance Committee. With the support of Finance Chairman Hatch (R-UT) and Ranking Member Wyden (D-OR), the CIDER Act was reported from committee with unanimous support, and I am hopeful that we will see continued movement on the legislation in the near future," said USACM President Mike Beck. "The changes in the federal tax code that would be made by the CIDER Act really are a response to the market, and would help this industry grow and create jobs and economic development," he stated.

With the bill having passed the Finance Committee, "The CIDER Act has now cleared a major hurdle, and I will not stop pushing until this legislation has come to a full floor vote and received the President's signature," said Senator Schumer. "Right now, federal tax laws make it extremely costly to produce, market and sell hard cider products, thereby preventing apple growers and cider producers in New York and across the country from fully benefiting from the stable income that comes with this product. There is incredible economic potential here that we must tap into. That is why I have not stopped fighting to pass the CIDER Act, which would finally update the definition of hard cider in the tax code by ensuring all products can be labeled and taxed for what they actually are, all while increasing growers' and producers' ability to compete both at home and overseas."

The CIDER Act would amend the section of the Internal Revenue Code (26 USC Section 5041) to allow hard cider makers increased flexibility in their final product without the possibility of facing increased tax liability. Specifically, the legislation would (1) increase the carbonation level for cider, thereby meeting consumer expectations, (2) include pears in the definition of "hard cider," and (3) align the alcohol-content standard for cider with the natural sugar content of applies. The legislative changes made by the CIDER Act would ensure that cider is taxed consistently.

"Our industry is growing, and it is imperative that Congress recognize the need for these changes to ensure continued expansion. I look forward to working with the Senate and the House to send the CIDER Act to the President for signature sometime this year," concluded Beck.

It gathers and shares information about cider production, cider regulations, and cider apple growing, to help members improve their operations, raise awareness, and advance cider in the market. The organization was founded in February, 2013 at "CiderCon," the third annual gathering of Cider Makers from across the US.

PRESS RELEASE: Cider Riot! Celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with Plastic Paddy Irish Style Dry Cider

PORTLAND, OREGON - March 18th, 2015 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Cider Riot! makes some serious ciders from rare cider apples. We also like to have fun. Plastic Paddy is a fun-loving easy drinking cider released in honor of the 2-litres of Irish cider that Cider Riot! founder and cidermaker Abram Goldman-Armstrong enjoyed so much as a student at University College Cork.

American dessert apples lack the characteristic tannins of European cider apples. In order to replicate the flavor profile of a dry Irish cider, we use Barry’s Gold Blend tea from County Cork to infuse the cider with just enough tannins to balance the natural acids of the Hood River and Yakima grown dessert apples used to make it.

Plastic Paddy is packaged in the traditional 2-liter Irish flagon, making it the perfect package for picnics and the old Cork tradition of gatting (drinking in parks)*. A flagon is the perfect size to share with friends and family, translating to 67 ounces, or just larger than a growler, a two-liter holds 4.2 US pints. Plastic Paddy is released in February for Paddy’s Day, and is available through the end of May in flagons. Limited draught will be available at select Portland pubs in March.

Cider Riot! is an urban cidery located in Portland’s North Tabor neighborhood just off East Burnside Street, dedicated to the production of refreshing dry ciders. Cider Riot! was founded in 2013 by Abram Goldman-Armstrong, after 18 years as a home cidermaker and home brewer. Cider Riot!’s dry ciders are currently available on draft, and 500ml glass bottles in Oregon and British Columbia.

For more information Call Abram Goldman-Armstrong at 503-662-8275, or email ciderriot@gmail.com

*Cider Riot! reminds cider lovers that Portland Parks require a picnic permit in order to consume alcohol in a park. Permit applications are available from: http://www.portlandoregon.gov/parks/49142

REV. NAT'S HARD CIDER PRESENTS THE RED FLESHTIVAL - FEBRUARY 14th, 2015, 3-10PM.

Portland, OR - February 9, 2015 - Reverend Nat's Hard Cider will host a special event as a cider-themed supplement to both Zwickelmania and Valentine's Day this Saturday, February 14th from 3-10pm at the Rev. Nat's Cidery & Public Taproom.

The Red Fleshtival, brainchild of Nat West, is a unique cider event that assembles some of the rarest hard ciders available in the United States. Red- and pink-fleshed apples are coveted, expensive, and often hard-to-find. Ciders made from such apples are even more obscure, but they've managed to assemble six different varieties in one place for this special event. Featured will be limited edition red-flesh ciders from Reverend Nat's Hard Cider, Snowdrift, Alpenfire, Uncle John's, West County Cider, and more. The ciders will be available in a special, one-day-only taster flight.

"Red flesh ciders are unique because they are rich in anthocyanins.", said West. "This compound, usually found in red and purple fruits, adds an extra dimension of flavor and level of complexity in a straight apple cider that is almost impossible to achieve using conventional apples." West created two single varietal ciders using Mountain Rose apples and Siberian Red Crabapples specially for the event. "[The Siberian Red cider] tastes and smells like the inside of a raspberry jelly donut. It's mind-blowing."

The Red Fleshtival takes place at Reverend Nat's Cidery & Public Taproom, 1813 NE 2nd Ave, Portland, Oregon, on Saturday, February 14th from 3:00PM - 10:00PM. The ciders will be available while supplies last.

About Reverend Nat's Hard Cider
At Reverend Nat's Hard Cider, we search the world for superior ingredients to handcraft the most unusual ciders that no one else will make. Founder Nat West has been making cider at home since 2004 and opened Reverend Nat's Hard Cider in September of 2011. With unique flagship products like the deeply complex yet subtly familiar Revival, dry-hopped Hallelujah Hopricot, and quinine-bittered Deliverance Ginger Tonic, we are making cider in the creative spirit of beer geeks.

PRESS RELEASE: Finnriver Wins Good Food Award

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  FINNRIVER FARM & CIDERY WINS 2015 GOOD FOOD AWARD

 

Friday, January 9, 2015

Finnriver Farm & Cidery in Chimacum Washington, was one of three recipients of the 2015 GOOD FOOD AWARDS in their inaugural cider category at last night’s gala award ceremony at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco.  Finnriver’s Black Currant Cider, fermented from Washington organic apples, was their winning entry.  The other two winners were Eden Ice Cider’s Heirloom Blend from Vermont and Shacksbury’s The 1840, also from Vermont.  Finalists included ciders from Blue Mountain and Wandering Aengus in Oregon. 

According the Good Food Awards, ‘The Good Food Awards celebrate the kind of food we all want to eat: tasty, authentic and responsibly produced. We grant awards to outstanding American food producers and the farmers who provide their ingredients.’

Finnriver co-founder Crystie Kisler and Finnriver cider ambassador Jana Daisy-Ensign were at the ceremony to receive the award and Kisler was invited on stage to offer remarks on the growing cider revival across the country: 

“In a remarkable resurgence, hard cider is the fastest growing category in the US beverage market and a revived cider culture is taking root across the country.  This renaissance includes a great range of producers making cider in all manner of ways from the ancient to the innovative. A fermented apple, it turns out, can become many things depending on the variety and the method-- from the sweet and sumptuous to the tart and tannic.  Today's cider finalists at the Good Food awards represent this range of approaches and tastes, and their submissions celebrate the versatility of this fantastic fruit as well as the wide geographic reach of the blossoming American cider community-- from my colleagues at Blue Mountain and Wandering Aengus in Oregon to Eden and Shacksbury in Vermont.  Some cideries are reinvigorating old traditions, re-planting historic cider apples, and rediscovering age old pleasures, while some are fermenting with a fresh twist and blending with bold new ideas. At Finnriver, we are very grateful to the cidermasters who've come before and helped mentor a new generation of cidermakers and lovers.  At its best, we hope our cider offers an honorable and joyful taste of earth's good fruits and that it connects folks back to life on the land—reminding us to be grateful and to take care.”

Finnriver co-owners Keith & Crystie Kisler and Eric Jorgensen, along with the Finnriver crew, farm and ferment organically on 80 protected acres in Chimacum, along a restored salmon stream on the north Olympic Peninsula of Washington.  They are committed to handcrafting both traditional and innovative ciders with apples from organic and homestead Washington orchards. Finnriver ciders pay a tribute to old hard cider styles but also offer an approachable, fresh perspective on the possibilities of the fermented apple.  Finnriver Farm is certified salmon safe and pursues wise land stewardship through organic agriculture, land conservation, habitat restoration, community education and seasonal celebration. Finnriver ciders are farmcrafted in small batches and are available in the following regions: WA, OR, California, Northern Idaho, AZ, NV, Illinois, Texas, Alberta and BC.

According the Good Food Awards, ‘We host an annual Awards Ceremony and Marketplace in San Francisco to honor the Good Food Award recipients who push their industries towards craftsmanship and sustainability while enhancing our agricultural landscape and building strong communities. In its fifth year, Good Food Awards will be given to winners in 11 categories: beer, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, coffee, confections, pickles, preserve, spirits, oil and our newest category, honey. Awards will be given to producers and their food communities from each of five regions of the US. The Good Food Awards Seal, found on winning products, assures consumers they have found something exceptionally delicious that also supports sustainability and social good.’

REVEREND NAT'S HARD CIDER RELEASES 'REVIVAL', NEW YEAR-ROUND OFFERING

Portland, OR - December 1, 2014 - Reverend Nat's Hard Cider is about to unveil Revival, a new year-round cider available on draft and in 500ml bottles. Revival, available starting December 1, reimagines the concept of American hard cider with complexity and layers of tropical fruit alongside a crisp, solid apple base. Revival is made with a dessert blend of apples, is comprised of multiple blended fermentations, and uses Mexican Piloncillo Negro for depth of flavor.

"I don't like to drink sweet ciders, so I don't make them" said Nat West, Reverend Nat's Hard Cider's founder. Revival greets the cider drinker with exotic pineapple, guava, and peach flavors from the unique yeast blend. "It gives a perception of sweetness, while maintaining an semi-dry character and rich complexity," says West. Revival is made using only the highest quality apples from Washington state and fully fermented piloncillo from Michoacan, Mexico.

Revival is filtered brilliant, clocks in at 6% ABV, and is naturally gluten-free. Release events will be held in the near future at Portland, OR-area taprooms. Check our Facebook page for announcements. Revival will be available where better beers and ciders are sold throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Southern California, and Alaska.

Made with a touch of local honey, it’ll have you reminiscing about grandma’s pie, cooling on the kitchen table. 

At 10.5% with a balanced finish, Nice & Naughty is an adult answer to those seeking out the season’s signature flavors, without overwhelming sweetness.

This year’s release of Nice & Naughty comes earlier than years past. “We are excited to release the Nice & Naughty this year right as the fall weather moves in and nature’s colors start to change,” said Dave Takush, head cidermaker. “You may be too old to trick or treat, but you’re never too old for Nice & Naughty. “

As always, 2 Towns Ciderhouse uses fresh-pressed 100% Northwest Apples, no added sugars, and never uses artificial essences or flavorings.  Instead, the Ciderhouse allows the fruit to speak for itself. Nice & Naughty will be available in the 2 Towns Tap Room Starting October 2nd  and to distributors on October 6th in bottles, and 1/6 bbls and 1/2 bbl kegs.  This seasonal cider will be available throughout Oregon, Washington and California.

About 2 Towns Ciderhouse

2 Towns Ciderhouse produces craft hard apple cider in Corvallis, Oregon. Founded in 2010 by three friends living in the two towns of Eugene and Corvallis, OR, 2 Towns Ciderhouse strives to bring craft hard apple cider back to the people.  2 Towns Ciderhouse is proud to be a part of the resurgence of America’s first craft beverage of choice. In 2012 we began planting our own cider apple orchard, and since the beginning we've been committed to supporting local apple growers by insisting on using the finest fresh-pressed 100% NW apples. We never take shortcuts in the cider-making process—and never add sugar or essence flavorings—but instead let the fresh, naturally fermented ingredients speak for themselves.
