Washington Cider Week Finale!
Sample a wide variety of ciders from around the Northwest while chatting with the cidermakers, including: Dragon's Head, Wandering Aengus, Seattle Cider, Elemental, Finnriver, Schilling, 2 Towns, Whitewood, Tieton, and more!
Saturday, September 19th in celebration of “Washington Cider Week,” we will be wrapping up the end of Summer with a night of Music, Food and oh yes, Cider! The Moonlight Gypsies will be entertaining us with their Folk/American or as they like to call it “Folkana”. Adding to the party we will be enjoying the Flying Pig BBQ and their delightful entrées. Just for this occasion our Cider Maker has hand crafted a very special batch- Unfiltered Fall Honey Cider. This one time only mix will take you back with a more traditional blend and locally purchased honey. Want to see how we make our delicious ciders? We will be touring the Cidery as well. Children are welcome to attend with parents. There is No Cover fee.
Not only will The Oh'Reallys be returning to ROCK the taproom, but Finnriver will be featured as our FIRST EVER guest taps! They will be bringing the Farmstead and an extra special Barrel Berry Sour! Food and drink specials, plus raffles throughout the afternoon.
Saddle Rock Pub & Brewery will be featuring six ciders from four northwest cider producers as part of a sample flight in celebration of Washington Cider Week, as well as the local Wenatchee Taste of the Harvest festival that will be taking place within walking distance of the pub location. Wenatchee Valley's own Snowdrift Cider Company will be represented, as well as Whitewood Cider, Alpenfire, and E.Z. Orchards. In addition to the sample flights, offerings from Snowdrift Cider and Whitewood Cider will be on tap, including Whitewood Cider's special release single varietal Oaked Kingston Black.
