8th Annual Cider Summit Chicago

Happy Holidays! One of the things we always look forward to in the cold Chicago winters is the annual return of Cider Summit Chicago.

The 8th Annual Cider Summit Chicago is scheduled for Saturday, February 22, 2019, in two sessions – Session 1 is 12 – 3 pm (VIP admission at 11 am) and Session 2 is 5 -8 pm (VIP admission at 4 pm), 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, apple spirits, and cider cocktails including regional favorites and international classics. This event is great for seasoned and novice cider drinkers as there is something to please every pallet and we always discover something new. This year the Heritage Cider Island returns, which features artisanal producers, as well as the J. Seeds Cider Cocktail & Apple Spirits Lounge.  

Once again, Cider Summit will debut its annual collaboration cider at the Chicago event. The cider, named Sault”, is created in collaboration with Virtue Cider.

All event tickets will be sold online in advance via the event website – CiderSummit.com.
