SBS Imports and the Seattle Beer Collective are pleased to announce the expansion of their successful Cider Summit festival to Berkeley.

The inaugural event will take place on Saturday, April 26 from 12 p.m. – 6 p.m. at Civic Center Park on Martin Luther King Way in Downtown Berkeley.

Cider Summit Berkeley is presented by Whole Foods Market and will benefit Berkeley Ecology Center and the Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research. The owners and cidermakers will be on hand to inform and guide guests through the samplings which will be available in 4‐ounce portions.

Cider Summit will feature approximately 90 ciders from throughout the U.S., England, Scotland, France, Spain, and perhaps others. The event will also feature specially selected food pairings from Whole Foods Market, a “Dog Lounge” hosted by the Berkeley Humane and an event store featuring Cider Summit t‐shirts and other merchandise.

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 (cash only, if tickets remain) at the door and are available online at cidersummit.com. Tickets include a souvenir tasting glass and 8 tasting tickets. Additional tasting tickets will be available for sale onsite at $2 per ticket. Designated driver tickets are available for $5, and include a bottle of water. The event is 21 and over only.

“Consumer interest in artisanal cider is growing at a phenomenal rate” noted event co‐founder Alan Shapiro of SBS Imports. “We look forward to creating the region’s largest‐ever sampling opportunity for both cider lovers and the cider curious.”

For those seeking to utilize public transportation, Civic Center Park is located only two blocks from the BART Downtown Berkeley stop. There are also several parking garages within a few blocks of the park as well as a bike valet service from East Bay Bicycle Coalition.

Cider Summit is presented by Whole Foods Market, along with supporting sponsors Upcider Gastropub, Hotel Shattuck Plaza, and Bay Area Beverage. Media support is provided by 96.5 koit Radio and East Bay Express.
