It's been a while since we've had a competition event, so here is how it works.
Everyone brings either a six pack of cider (or 4 for those that come in 4 packs) or two of the big bottles. We open 1-3 of each depending upon what was brought and sample from them. Everyone gets 2 or 3 votes depending upon the number of entries.
The cider with the most votes gets to take home a lot of cider. The cider with the second most votes gets to take home a bit less cider, and depending upon the number of entries the third place person might also get something.
Ciders by Woodchuck, Michelob, Angry Orchard, Magners and Strongbow are excluded from the competition.
Please post the name of your cider once you have it so we eliminate some duplicates and be specific as there are many varieties from the same company.
The produce station has a large selection of craft ciders to choose from.
We will do the same for dips. Bring a homemade dip of some sort. We'll lay them out and the dip with the most votes gets to take 2 bottles of their favorite cider home (yup, they get to steal them from the winners of the cider contest)!
Afterwords we'll play games, socialize and hot tub (bring a swimsuit).
I live about 30 minutes from Ann Arbor, right off of I-94 exit 145. Address will be emailed out the day before.
