Pacific Northwest Cider Awards – 2014 Cider Festival

Pacific Northwest Cider Awards (PNWCA) held their first annual cider competition and three day festival this last weekend at The Woods, Seattle Cider Company’s tasting room. Ray and I attended the event and volunteered on Saturday and Sunday. We ended up volunteering at a pouring station, and had a blast!

The cider competition judging was held on Thursday, and the results of the judging were posted at the festival. Best in Show was awarded to the Schilling Cider “Ginger”. This is a crisp cider with a burst of ginger flavor. Really nice!
