The event also serves as the official kick-off to Oregon Cider Week.

    Put the cider inside her and drink till you stink!
    down those squashed apples and don’t care if it’s pink
    explore some new flavors, try something new
    Cider Summit is just something you must do
    and although it can get busy and can cost a small fee
    I don’t have to worry, PDX Pipeline’s got me :)

    Thanks!

This would really put a good end to her school year and make her birthday sweet like cider! Thank you!

    I am traveling back home from grad school in Florida for my birthday and Father’s Day. It’d be a big treat to take my Dad to this and enjoy some new ciders we haven’t tried yet!

    I would love to be an “incider”to this event! Cider is tart, smart and sets the cool kids apart – Please get me out of my little town and mingling with cool kids!
