Join us for the 2nd Annual
Pour the Core:  A Hard Cider Festival
Saturday, September 27, 2014
40+ Local and International Ciders

With the renewed interest in eating and drinking local, it is no wonder that ciders are following in the wildly popular footprints of craft beer, and often compared to wine.  Today we see that hard ciders and perries (cider made from pears) are enjoying quite a renaissance here in the United States.
 
This event will showcase the finest locally-produced and internationally-sourced ciders – more than 40 in all – being sampled on the picturesque grounds of the Parade Grounds of the Philadelphia Navy Yard. 

The event will feature local favorites, best-selling U.S. produced ciders (including Angry Orchard and Woodchuck), and a variety of imported ciders and perries from England, Ireland, and Sweden.

The event will take place outdoors, under tents, nestled into the beautiful fall foliage on the parade grounds.   The event will take place rain or shine (no refunds).  Food (not included in ticket price) will be available for purchase from local Philly Food Trucks.  Parking is limited. Complimentary shuttle bus service will be provided for festival attendees from the Broad & Pattison SEPTA station to the event. The Navy Yard is located about 100 yards off exits from 95 or 76.

There will also be special seminars about cider, the making of cider, and the enjoyment of cider.  The event will help raise funds for the Committee to Benefit the Children. Visit the charity page to find out more about these great foundations. A sell-out is expected so buy your tickets early.  Once the event sells out, no additional tickets will be available.
