Smashed apples make an intoxicating elixir. Ciders are fast becoming one of the preferred beverages of the discriminating fruit-based drink aficionado.

The NW Ciderfest will celebrate cider, and those who create cider, at a family-friendly event on October 11, 2014.

One featured cidery, Swift Cider, was named for the Vaux’s swifts that inhabit the chimney at Chapman Elementary school in Portland. Tasty Tuesday guest, Aidan Currie, and his business partner, Jeremy Kwit, started Swift Cider in 2011.
