There’s nothing but sunshine on our minds. We’re pretty stoked about sun-drenched adventures in the days ahead, and all the spritzy, delicious cider we’ll drink while doing so.
While there’s nothing quite like cracking open a chilled cider in the backyard – we’re not too keen on the decision fatigue that ensues while pounding the aisles of a grocery store. Thankfully, the NW Cider Association has a delicious solution to this conundrum. Enter the NW Cider Club. Here, you can leave the heavy lifting to the experts and savor a true craft cider experience. Launched in Fall 2020, the club curates themed quarterly selections of Northwest ciders that are shipped to cider lovers not just in the Northwest, but across the country.
You could call it an unexpected perk of quarantine life. Necessitated by need, the craft beverage world saw the ease of online shopping and direct deliveries. “The club was a longtime dream that came to fruition because of the need to help our member cideries sell directly to consumers when many of their regular sales channels were limited or closed because of the pandemic. Northwest Cider Association works to connect cider and cider drinkers, so the club is a natural extension of that,” said Jana Daisy-Ensign, Certified Pommelier at the Northwest Cider Association.
