PORTLAND, OR -- Oregon is developing a thirst for cider, the fastest growing segment in the beverage industry. Cider will take center stage during Oregon Cider Week, a celebration of all things cider, June 20-29. This week posters, buttons and coasters showcasing Oregon Cider
Week are turning up throughout the state. The first weekend kicks off with the Cider Summit, followed by the International Cider Cup, both in Portland.

Some of the daily highlights in Portland are cider tastings and flights at Hotel deLuxe, cider ice creams at Fifty Licks, and unique cider desserts and cider flights at St. Honoré Boulangerie. A special cider tasting is planned during the week at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry as is part of the popular “OMSI After Dark” series.
