Oregon State University has played a central role in advancing the field of fermentation sciences, as well as helping entrepreneurs learn how to start breweries and cideries and find their own unique place in the craft beverage business with their own distinctive brands. And since 2014, participants in our accelerated Craft Cidery Startup Workshop have launched some of the most inspired (and well-prepared) industry startups.
Our Craft Cidery Startup Workshop offers an enriching and accelerated path to help ensure your own business is a success. Taught by seasoned professionals and some of the Pacific Northwest’s biggest names in the industry, this course walks participants through the basics of:
* Creating a hard cider business plan

Held in Portland, Oregon over the course of five days, classroom sessions and cidery tours will arm you with the knowledge and inspiration to start your own successful cider operation.
