We’ve been loving learning all about cider over this past month — from judging at the Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition (GLINTCAP), to getting sensory training from some cider icons, to scoping out the hard apple bubbly scene down-under (more to come next month) — it’s been a steep, rewarding and buzz-filled learning curve.

It’s an amazing time to be an Ontario cider drinker — just check out all the award-winning homegrown ciders from GLINTCAP below. So there’s no better way to cap off our apple-soaked month then to celebrate the best of province during Ontario Craft Cider Week from May 27th to June 4th. We’ll also be hitting the country’s first dedicated cider bar for their grand opening that week. Her Father’s Cider Bar will be serving 39 of the medal-winning ciders from GLINTCAP 2016 (we’ve listed them all below). HF’s finally opens on May 27th, 2016 and it has a sparkling week of of apple bevvy-related events planned, check out their f-book page for the deets.
