Pacific Northwest Cider Awards (PNWCA) is pleased to announce its third annual cider competition and all-day cider festival taking place June 25, 2016 in Seattle!

PNWCA is comprised of a one-day private judging, followed by an all-day festival to be held at The Woods tasting room in Seattle’s SoDo neighborhood. With more 145 ciders from 38 cideries submitted for the competition in 2015, the number is expected to rise this year thanks to the remarkable growth of cideries seen throughout Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho and Canada. Making up the Pacific Northwest, these states have quickly combined their efforts to create one of the fastest growing cider areas in the world and have brought this lost craft back to life. Through the PNWCA, we hope to continue to raise awareness for the unique and spectacular ciders being produced in this region while making them accessible to cider lovers.
