In this beer obsessed world, I’m so happy that cider has found a place to grow and get bigger and bigger. I’m not knocking beer, but cider is my brew of choice. (What’s yours?)
My favourite drinks festival is back for 4th year of spreading the cider love! The Toronto Cider Festival will happen on August 24th & 25th at the Sherbourne Common, right by the waterfront.
This festival is tons of fun and a great way to get exposure to new ciders that you may not have tried before. There’s nothing better than spending a summer evening sipping cider next to Lake Ontario. This year the theme is wild Western and each session will have over 100 taps of cider available.
In a couple of weeks, the second annual Toronto Cider Festival rolls into Dundas Square on Saturday August 27, 2016. If you’re a cider lover, you’re not going to want to miss this chance to try over 40 different ciders from 20 different cideries from across Canada and abroad. Last year the festival sold out, so you’re definitely going to want to get your hands on some tickets early.
In the evening, A VIP session takes place; providing exclusive early admission to the evening session, 10 sample tokens and access to a “Food and Cider Pairing” discussion led by Doris Miculan Bradley – a 20-year industry professional and the Canadian Brand Ambassador for The Wines of Vinho Verde.
As a bonus for attendees, this year there will be some pretty awesome contests at the festival. (more…)
It’s almost Ontario Cider Week! From May 27th to June 4th, this week is devoted to celebrating local cider. This is my favourite week, because cider is my preferred drink of choice. Cider is rapidly becoming more popular in Toronto, which is awesome to see.
I’m really excited to share this event with you! The Craft Cider Cruise brings together 12 cider companies and 1 brewery for an evening cruise along Lake Ontario on June 5th, at 7pm. This 3 hour boat ride is $40 and includes a commemorative mug along with four sample tokens that can be used at one of the participating cider companies for a 4oz sample of your choice. There will also be some tasty bites to buy on board.
Participating cider companies include: Pommies, Forbidden, Spirit Tree, Thornbury, Revel Cider, Shiny Apple Cider and more.
Sounds like fun? Grab your ticket here before it sells out!
