The cider story has been unfolding over the past decade in Central Washington.  Early adaptors include Kevin Van Reenan, owner of Pear Up, located in East  Wenatchee. Van Reenan’s “perrys” helped establish the category in America and are  now in Asia and Europe. Rootwood Cider in Manson started grafting cider apples  into their fourth generation family orchard around eight years ago. Today, they’re  pouring at two visitor locations. All through the region portions of family orchards are  being repurposed to help the cider flow. Some labels like Manchester Road, a  consistent crowd favorite, are inspired by classic British beverages, others like Union  Hill are innovating new territory. The awards and results speak for themselves.  

On October 9, 2021, virtually all of the region’s hard cider makers will be pouring at  the third annual Big Chill Cider and HarvestFest, staged this year for the first time at  Pybus Public Market. Celebrate the season with over 40 choices of cider from 14  labels along with displays, games, music, food, cider making and a free kid’s harvest  play area. Discover the intricacies of cider and what to serve with it while visiting  with the makers behind the flavors. The Big Chill also hosts the biggest, annual  cider pop-up store in Eastern Washington, offering virtually every Central WA hard  cider including Pear Up, Rootwood, Manchester Road, ChelanCraft, Archibald  James, Union Hill, Bad Granny, Phillippi, Ole Swede, Snowdrift, Steelhead, Barns  Etc, Centre Ring, and introducing Watercore.  

From dry to sweet, from pear to apple, explore the newest and finest entries onto the  local beverage scene at The Big Chill Cider and Harvestfest. Tickets start at $25 for  this outdoor event and can be purchased:
