Really looking forward to visiting Portland, Oregon at the beginning of February to attend CiderCon2016. Bill Bradshaw has invited Neil Worley, Barny Butterfield and myself to celebrate English Cider Traditions at the event finale.
The line up of events and speakers for the week is formidable and with all the Portland cider makers and cider houses all putting on special events it should be a great week.

Friday, February 5th, 7:30pm – The Skimmity Hitchers Live at Cider Riot!
All the way from the cider sheds of England’s West Country, the Skimmity Hitchers play Scrumpy & Western at it’s finest. Their sound is a cider-fuelled mix of folk punk, rockabilly and ska. Get an exculsive sneak peek at Cider Riot’s new home for this grand finale to Cidercon. We’ll be pouring our own ciders including some reserve 1763 scrumpy from our first harvest in 2013, as well as selected ciders from some of the best cidermakers in Cascadia. Including EZ Orchards, Reverend Nat’s, Wandering Aengus, Portland Cider, and more. Enjoy tamles and tacos from Montiel’s Cocina. The PDX Punk Rock Collective and Gypsy Trident Blues Band have just been confirmed as the opening acts. 21+, $5 at the door, free with Cidercon badge.
Presented by Cider Riot! Fuelled by Cider, Oliver’s Cider and Perry, New Forest Cider, Cranbourne Chase Cider, and Talbot Harris Cider Shed.
