The massive collection of hopped ciders requires street closure this year and adds more offerings including international ciders.
Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider is pleased to announce the return of the Hopped Cider Festival to their Cidery & Public Taproom in northeast Portland. The second annual event will take place Saturday, April 18 2015 from 12 PM to 10 PM, the day immediately following the Craft Brewer’s Conference in Portland. New this year is an expansion of the festival into the street adjoining the public taproom.
This is the second Hopped Cider Fest put on by Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider, having launched the concept last year very nearly on a whim. Public response was overwhelming last year with nearly 800 attendees crammed into the cidery for eight solid hours. This year’s event will include a street closure and even more ciders including hopped ciders produced around the world.
Many cidermakers will be on hand to inform attendees through the samplings which will be available in 4-ounce tasting portions in a souvenir festival glass. In addition to the superb range of ciders, the event will feature food from El Taco Yucateca and the returning favorites Bro-Dogs + Burgers. And in a repeat of last year’s festivities, every hour on the hour attendees will be treated to free tastes of ciders unavailable for purchase in Oregon including ciders from all over the USA and overseas.
“This is surely the largest collection of hopped ciders in the history of the universe,” says Reverend Nat West. “Last year we organized the event in a couple weeks and were blown away by the public response. We learned our lessons and decided to expand into the street but we are doubling-down by adding even more hopped ciders and upping the tasting pour size.”
Tickets are available for $20 at the door (cash or credit). Admission includes a tasting glass and 6 tasting tokens. Additional tasting tokens will be available for sale onsite for $2 each. Re-admission will be allowed at any time with event wristband and tasting glass. THE EVENT IS 21 & OVER ONLY. No dogs or other pets.
