Love apples? Then, drink apples! Gather with fellow apple enthusiasts, hard cider aficionados, fermentation zealots, and craft beverage fanatics at The Navy Yard in Philadelphia for the fifth annual Pour The Core: Philly.
At Pour The Core: Philly, you and your friends will be surrounded by the picturesque fall backdrop of the Marine Parade Grounds and be showcased to the finest locally-produced and internationally-sourced ciders – more than 100 to sample! The event will feature local favorites like the artfully crafted, Wyndridge Hard Cider, Hardball Cider, Kurant Cider, and so many other PA favorites! Best-selling US brands like Woodchuck Hard Cider and Ace Cider will also be featured. And, a variety of imported ciders and perries from Spain, England and elsewhere will round out the varieties offered, such as Strongbow.
So get your blanket or lawn chair ready to stake your spot in the field. Carry your sunglasses and hat for protection from the sun… check the weather for what to wear and get your tickets. The event will take place rain or shine (no refunds). Don’t forget to bring a belly ready for delicious foods available to purchase from local Philly food trucks.
Don’t forget to sign-up for the Cider Donut Eating Contest! Open to all ticketholders.
There will be special seminars about cider, the making of cider, and the enjoyment of cider. The event will also help raise funds for the Committee to Benefit the Children (CBC). Visit the charity page to find out more about this great organization.
