Formed in 2010, the Northwest Cider Association brings cideries and cider lovers together to share knowledge, experience and live the Northwest cider culture.

You’ll find member cideries and orchards in Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho and Canada. Memberships and sponsorships are also available to individual cider fans, as well as retail shops, restaurants, beverage distributors, supporting industries, apple growers, and aspiring makers of cider and perry.
