Plum Cider Fest at Alter Ego Cider

Alter Ego Cider is making good use of their new Southeast Portland taproom by hosting yet another creative event, the first-ever Plum Cider Fest. Join Alter Ego and friends this Saturday, September 14th from 2-5pm to taste limited release, small-batch ciders with plums from nine Northwest cideries.

Alter Ego asked each participating cidery to make a cider with any kind of plum they wanted and to be as creative or straightforward as they wished.

Guests at the walk-around tasting will vote for their favorite cider and will award Gold, Silver and Bronze medals accordingly.

Participating cideries include 12 Bridges, Alter Ego, Bauman’s, Cider Riot, Finnriver, Portland Cider, Rev Nats, Wildcraft and Xylem.

Tickets are $12 and include 5 drink tickets (for 2.5 oz pours), plus a keepsake Alter Ego glass. Advanced tickets are available here.
