(PRESS RELEASE) – Hosted by Cider Corps in Downtown Mesa, the Southwest Cider Festival showcases the growing popularity of craft cider in the region. The festival will include samples of local and regional ciders, food trucks, music and other activities. The event is outside Cider Corps at 31 S. Robson St.
People will be able to enjoy ciders from Arizona’s four cideries – Stoic Cider, Desert Cider House, Crush Craft Cider Co. and Cider Corps – as well as sample ciders from California, Texas, Washington, Colorado and New York.
Cider Corps co-owner Josh Duren says, the festival is about letting people discover this new and unique beverage.
“Craft cider is so different from mass produced drinks and even from traditional European ciders,” Duren explained. “We’re experimenting with flavor profiles and techniques that make this a really unique beverage without artificial flavoring or added sugars. The festival is a chance to sample the variety out there and really support the craft cider community.”
General Admission tickets include a commemorative glass and 15 drink tickets. The Southwest Cider Festival is a 21 and older event. For more details, follow the festival on Instagram @swciderfest.
