Harvest time! Thanks for everyone who helped us celebrate Washington Cider Week! It’s time to pick apples and press all over the PNW! Check out our map for an all-in-one guide to cideries and orchards you can visit or just order from!

Or go to @ciderswig and @cidersummit as they each have boxes of cider you can purchase to sample a number of PNW companies! Thanks for helping us keep the craft cideries going. So grateful for the support.

A picnic-ready pairing set is as close as your local farmer’s market!

#Repost PNW Cider Girl:
When was the last time you went to the farmer’s market? Last week? Last month? Last year? Never? Well, the farmer’s markets are open and now you’ve got an excuse to go!

For @waciderweek at select farmer’s markets you can get a special trio of ciders from Finnriver . The cider set comes with Farmstead, Plum Wine, and Sojourn. While you’re at the farmer’s market grab some local dinner ingredients and make a night of it. Check out Finnriver’s calendar on their website to see which farmer’s markets they’ll be at and pick up your own. Cheers 🍻

If you relish crisp apples & pears, sweet tropical fruits, zesty lemon and lime, lower abv (aka low sugar and carbs), or if you are like me, turning cartwheels in your mouth at the mere mention of acid, you are going to love Cider.
.
🍏According to the National Apple Museum, Apples were so bitter that for 1000s of yrs, they were pressed for juice and fermented into an alcoholic drink rather than eating it as table fruit.
.
🍏Archaeological evidence prove that the original Garden of Eden aka Apples originate from Kazakhstan.

🍏The 1st recorded reference dates back to Roman Times - 55BCE Julius Caesar found Celtic Britons fermenting Cider from native Crabapples.
.
🍏14th century children were baptised in Cider as it was cleaner than water. Farm workers earnings included 4 pints of cider a day.
.
🍏In America, English settlers brought cider apple seeds. During colonial period, cheap easy access to apple orchards resulted in Cider becoming America's most popular beverage, also in part apple farmer Johnny Appleseed.
.
🍏Did Isaac Newton discover the principle of gravity after watching an apple fall from a tree?
.
🍏It takes 36 apples to produce 1G of hard cider. Though today in the US apples, pears or other fruits can be harvested to make cider.
.
🍏Temperance movement might have obliterated Cider consumption but Today thanks to micro breweries, cider is experiencing a major resurgence.
.
🍏2018 retail sales boasted 500M+ in the US including 900+ cideries.
.
🍏Yes Cider is produced from Apples But just like Wine, cider emotes a diverse range of flavors from herbs to grapefruit to caramel. Smoky or sweet, crispy, earthy, floral bouquet to robust, fruity flavors.
.
🍏Today Cider's multi-facet personality includes - still, naturally sparkling, bottle fermented, methode champenoise, carbonated, dry/ medium/sweet to ice cider, cider brandy, acidic, tan

Did you know there are over 150 Cideries in the greater Pacific Northwest? All of our Cider Weeks are programs of the Northwest Cider Association, a nonprofit, member-driven group of cider makers who work together to connect cider fans with the cider they love. It is fun to visit and meet the cider makers and explore their styles and ethos. Plan your next visit using our map at nwcider.com/map. You can filter based on the region you want to visit and see who offers tours and when! It’s fun to get to know your own back yard and the people who make this community so special. Cheers
