CIDERCRAFT, NORTH AMERICA’S FIRST CIDER PRINT PUBLICATION, LAUNCHES SPRING 2014

Seattle, WA (April 8, 2014) – From Sip Ventures, the privately owned and operated publisher behind the award-winning regional beverage publication Sip Northwest, comes CIDERCRAFT—the first North American magazine dedicated to cider. CIDERCRAFT devotes itself to shining a light on the evolution and resurgence of one of the oldest beverages on the continent, bringing both education and appreciation of the drink to the thirsty people.

With circulation for the inaugural issue commencing at 25,000, the bi-annual CIDERCRAFT magazine will profile the artisans behind the craft, while exploring the regions andorchards, meeting the movers and shakers of the industry, listing original cocktail recipes from nationally renowned bar-chefs, recommend pairings with cider-friendly cuisine and aid as a connection between the consumer and cider producers.

“I am immensely grateful for the editorial team of international cider writers and experts we have enlisted for this first issue,” said Erin James, CIDERCRAFT editor-in-chief. Contributors include “World’s Best Ciders” authors Bill Bradshaw and Pete Brown, along with international cider aficionado Rowan Jacobsen and many more talented cider wordsmiths. “The response we’ve had from food and beverage writers has been very inspiring,” James said. “We knew we could acquire a stellar set of professionals.”

The favorable reaction wasn’t just from passionate drink writers, but from North American cider producers as well. “Cider is in a state of incredible growth right now, however, few people really know what cider is all about or the diversity the craft of cider represents,” James Kohn, co-owner of Wandering Aengus Ciderworks in Salem, Ore., said. “CIDERCRAFT will be huge for the burgeoning cider industry because it will show cider for what it really is—a diverse and legitimate drink.”

Vermont Hard Cider COO/CFO Dan Rowell, who sits on the United States Association of Cider Makers board of directors with Kohn, echoed the same sentiment. “The cider category is growing quick and pulling drinkers from beer, wine and spirits alike,” Rowell said. “Interest in cider is rising, which leads to the desire for knowledge and a thirst for trying new cider styles. Having a publication focused on delivering the story of cider and of the many great cider makers across the country will drive greater interest and growth in the cider category.”
