Back for its third year, Montana Cider Week will celebrate the craft of hard cider with events across Montana from September 29th through October 7th. Take part in over 30 events across Montana. The week will include cider tastings, parties, cider dinners, orchard tours, tap takeovers, a Cider Professional Certification class at Western Cider, and more. This follows last year’s Montana Cider Week where over 4,000 Montanans participated in celebrating the state’s growing craft cider industry.
The week kicks off with the Bigfork Cider Festival on Saturday the 29th. Throughout the week, participants will have the opportunity to taste award-winning ciders from Montana makers including Western Cider, Montana CiderWorks, Lockhorn Hard Cider, BetterRoot Cider, and Backroad Cider at participating tasting rooms, bars, and restaurants across the state.
The final weekend will include Liquid Apple Night in the Bitterroot Valley where Montana cideries will pour in support of the Ravalli County Museum, as well as the chance to visit some of the orchards where the apples are grown.
