It's been too long and I am way over due on the blog posts.
Cider School was great, everything I expected and more but I learned and experienced so much that I'm finding it difficult to decide exactly what to write about. That post will come soon.
In the meantime if any of you folks out there in and around Olympia are curious about ciders I will be helping Gravity Beer Market will be holding an informal cider tasting at their "Last Friday Tasting" which is this Friday.
Here are the details:
When: Friday, July 25th
Where: Gravity Beer Market
Cost: $5 per person with proper ID
Ciders: Strongbow (England), Aspall Dry (England), Sam Smith Organic (England), Wandering Aengus Semi Dry Organic (Oregon), Westcott Bay (Washington), Spire Pear (Washington)
Gravity co-owner Roma has chosen a wide variety of different ciders from the Northwest and England. We have a few craft ciders as well as a few production ciders. This would be a opportunity and introduction for folks wanting to learn a little bit about what the cider market has to offer these days.
Come with questions, I'll do my best to answer them.
PS: In the next day or so I'll posting tasting notes and reviews of a really impressive Cider and Perry from Blossomwood Cidery which is located in Cedaredge, Colorado.
