Blending Workshop: Trifecta

Event Date

Sunday, May 17, 2020
12:00pm - 4:00pm

 Introducing TRIFECTA... a new cider created by YOU!

Join us for the inaugural Trifecta Blending Party on Sunday, May 17 from 12-4 p.m. Teams will compete to fashion the winning blend for this new annual release. While the main ingredients will be three rare cider apples, the name Trifecta is also as a salute to the collaborative forces of the orchard, Blue Bee Cider, and the Cider Club seminar participants. Lunch and lots of cider tasting included.
Preliminary agenda:
 - 12 p.m. Gather and form teams
 - 12:15 Introduction to blending by Courtney, Taylor & Brian
 - 12:30 Hands-on blending
 - 1:30 Lunch provided by Truckle Cheesemongers
- 2:30 Sensory analysis, tastings and ranking of team blends
- 3:30 Scoring and review of notes
- 4:00 Winners and next steps

Trifecta will ultimately be kegged, bottled and released for the first time later in 2020. We'll do it again in 2021 and every year thereafter as a special Cider Club celebration.

$50/ticket; Cider Club punch card may be applied for $45 preferred pricing.
