Ciderfest 2013 brought in a crowd of over 800, and we anticipate another great turnout this year! There will be a wide range of ciders, from dry to sweet, with fruit ciders, grapefruit and honeywine, and even some herb infused versions of the hard apple staple. Additionally, numerous cideries utilize organic growing practices and other sustainable and heath-oriented ingredients, so there will be many options for the conscious drinker!

Also, April will be Cider Month at Hophouse, featuring 8 taps of cider all month long at both hophouse locations, with flights of 8 tasters for $10 all month. Look for tastings with cidermakers on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the entire month, and get your cider fix!
