Happy New Year! One of the things we always look forward in the cold Chicago winters is the annual return of Cider Summit Chicago.
The 6th Anniversary Cider Summit Chicago is scheduled for Saturday, February 17, 2017, in two sessions – 11am-3pm & 4pm-8pm, at the at the Aon Grand Ballroom at Navy Pier. The strictly 21 & over event, co-founded by Alan Shapiro, celebrates local, regional and international artisanal ciders and cidermakers.
Cider Summit CHI will showcase nearly 200 ciders, meads, and cider cocktails including regional favorites and international classics.
