CiderCon 2018: A Recap in Photos


It’s hard to believe one week has gone by since craft cider industry folks from across the world were assembling at the Marriott in Baltimore for CiderCon 2018. Each day was jam-packed with educational opportunities, networking/socializing, eating and drinking delicious things and, overall, just tons of fun. It was heartening to see such unity, cooperation and camaraderie among our community, and we’re already dreaming of next year (February 4–8, 2019, in Chicago, y’all!).

For in-depth recaps of our first three days at CiderCon, see here:

Thanks again to USACM and everyone else involved in the planning of such an incredible conference. And thank you to all of the folks that make cider, drink cider, research cider, package cider, distribute cider, grow apples, write about cider and love cider… We are inspired by all of you!

    The photo of the USACM Board communicates a lot — love our board — they’re great folks — but can we talk about the fact that our board is made up of 10 white men and only one woman? In an industry with pretty reasonable gender equity? There are so many women who are cidermakers, and cidery and orchard owners. And cider serves a customer base that’s 50/50 Male/Female. Never mind racial diversity: We haven’t even collected the data to understand who’s drinking our cider, but I know from my own marketing efforts that African Americans are well represented as cider fans, as are Latinos. So, yes: Great board, populated with keen professionals, but we need to do a better job of representing the diversity of the cider industry with next year’s elections.

      Hi Danya,

      We are appreciative of your comments and we’ve shared the feedback with Executive Director of USACM. Diversity is definitely in the industry’s best interest!
