Missing festivals? Cider Summit has you covered with their CiderCon Festival To Go Tasting Kits.
Cider Summit is an annual celebration of artisanal hard cider, and it has pivoted from a physical festival held in four different cities to a curated tasting experience that can be enjoyed in the safety of your own home.
“Although the pandemic has changed the way events are operating, it’s still important to us to continue this tradition in some way and celebrate our amazing cider community,” said Alan Shapiro, Cider Summit founder and producer, in a press release.
