Cider Summit Portland

Portland offers all manner of amazing things and today we got out in the sun to experience Cider Summit. The event brings together artisanal cider makers from around the US. As part of our ticket we were given an 8 ounce souvenir glass and 8 sample coupons.

Here's Kyle enjoying his cider IMG_0939Some of the selections included Cherry, Boysenberry, Ginger, 3 Pepper (that one was super weird!), CHOCOLATE and the favourite of the day Baked Apple Pie.

Then we had ice cream because we needed more dessert. Toasted Milk flavour was surprisingly delicious!

Time for a nap now I think.
