Sorry, no festivals here.
It’s always a relief when you discover that new brewery you were going to check out after work also has cider on tap. There’s always that one person who “can’t stand beer.” Well, that person will be excited to know there are cider festivals. In fact, there’s probably a cider festival in a city near you. As for the beer lovers, there are plenty of craft beer festivals. Some festivals have both beverages. But no matter how stuck beer lovers are on 100-plus IBU IPAs, you know they secretly think ciders are tasty. And festivals such as the Cider Summit NW in Portland, Oregon, might have the beer snob trading in his hops for apples.
