First Annual Cider Summit NW
Comes to South Lake Union Discovery Center Park
Largest-Ever Tasting of Artisanal Ciders

The Northwest Cider Association, SBS Imports and the Seattle Beer Collective are pleased to announce the First Annual Cider Summit NW Saturday, September 11, 2010 at South Lake Union Discovery Center Park from 11a-7p presented by Whole Foods Market. The event will feature the area’s largest ever gathering of artisanal ciders and cider producers.

Perhaps a hybrid of beer festival and wine tasting, Cider Summit NW offers guests an opportunity to sample some 40 elegantly crafted ciders from producers in Washington, Oregon, British Columbia, England, and France. The owners and cidermakers will be on hand to inform and guide guests through the samplings which will be available in 3-ounce and 6-ounce portions. Each featured cider is made from 100% pressed apples (or pears) and is made without concentrates or other additives.

Cider Summit NW benefits The Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research (www.imbcr.org). IMBCR is one of the world’s leading independent research organizations developing effective therapies to increase the quality of life and longevity of myeloma patients. Cider Summit NW is presented by Whole Foods Markets with supporting sponsors Northwest Cider Association, Vulcan Properties, and Seattle Weekly.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door and are available online via Brown Paper tickets and at the area’s leading bottle shops including the Beer Junction, Bottleworks, Full Throttle Bottles, Malt & Vine, and 99 Bottles.
