Not sure if you like hard cider? Does it make you think of a sweet tooth and a pounding headache the morning after? Let us guide you down a path to real cider, leave the sugar bombs behind and discover what the hottest beverage category in the world is all about. Our industry experts will be on hand to educate, explore, and share their passion for their craft. You won’t find the big brands at this festival, only the small batch producers who give the love and attention to every drop of divine liquid that they create. These are not the ciders you see on TV commercials, nor will you see their ads on the wall in the restroom at a Las Vegas night club. No, these are real ciders made with 100% fresh pressed juice. No water added. No artificial ingredients. Just the raw goods. These are orchard sourced ciders that sell out every year, relying on next year’s harvest to bring another bounty of juice. We have assembled a collection of rare products, never seen before in Southern California.
Fancy yourself a craft beer? A craft beer drinker is a cider drinkers best friend! The two go hand in hand, or rather, pint for pint. We have reached out to our friends in the craft beer community and organized an army of the leading producers here in CA, only the best will be on hand to quench your thirst for local brew. Funny fact, did you know that hard cider would be the second highest selling craft beer style in the US if it were actually a craft beer?
To connect with everyone in our audience, we have designed an all in one experience that will range by degrees of familiarity and challenge. We will meet you where you are at in your cider drinking experience, and take you to a whole new level of enjoyment! We will show you how to pour your cider, taste your cider, compare your cider to popular beer styles, pair your cider with food, and also how to make delicious cocktails using cider and beer!
