2014 Washington Cider Week!
Cidermakers Announce the Third Annual Washington Cider Week. Celebrate the state’s most exciting beverage with more than 75 activities, September 4-14
SEATTLE, WA—The Northwest Cider Association (NWCA) has announced the third annual Washington Cider Week, a 10-day craft cider celebration. Cider Week Washington kicks off on September 4th, and on the 5th the Northwest Cider Summit kicks the party into gear at South Lake Union in Seattle. Followed by a week long of tasting events. Washington is one of six states in the U.S. celebrating a Cider Week this year, joining California, Michigan, New York, Oregon and Virginia. Fourteen cideries from Washington are participating in this year’s events.
Cidermakers in Washington have plenty to celebrate and be proud of. Many of our region's cidermakers are gaining national recognition, not to mention receiving numerous national and international awards for their Northwest cider and perry.
Year after year cider continues to be the fastest-growing segment of the beverage market. Hard cider, crafted from apples with the same careful attention that wine is developed from grapes, is naturally gluten-free, and makes use of fruit varieties that date back hundreds of years.
We expect over 100 separate activities and special menu items are planned throughout Washington state. Reservations are strongly encouraged for some events, such as the Northwest Cider Summit and cidermaker dinners.
