7 Legs of Tasty Cider, Beer, and Seltzer
This Sunday was supposed to be the great Ski to Sea Race. While we can’t all gather and cheer on our friends like we had hoped, we think there should still be some celebration from home! Introducing the Ski to Seat 🛋️: Taste Race! We have come up with a premium tasting of some of our favorite offerings, all paired with each of the 7 legs of the actual race. Our Taste Race Box is available now for $75 ($80 value) - and you can always opt to take on just one or a few legs
Please note that this tasting is not about the amount of time it takes you to complete it, but how much fun you have while doing it. We encourage you to take it easy and enjoy them over the course of… whatever feels comfortable for you! It’s your Taste Race and you’re all winners. Here’s a breakdown of how our race map looks:
Cross Country Ski | Eve's Cidery - Albee Hill ($17)
Eve’s Cidery comes to us all the way from aCROSS the COUNTRY in New York! This dry, still cider is a delicious way to begin a weekend of tasting.
Downhill Ski/Snowboard | Snowdrift Cider Company - Winter Red ($25)
This cider was the obvious choice for the ski/snowboard leg. It may be springtime, but this Winter Red is amazing in any season!
Running | Alpenfire Cider - Olympic Discovery Trail Cider ($28)
You’ve probably seen this cider in our cooler before. It’s hard to miss in its 1.5 liter bag! This one packs a punch, so it’s a good thing we’re staying seated for this Taste Race.
Road Bike | Lost Giants Cider Company - Elderberry ($2.5)
We love our pals from right down the ROAD at Lost Giants! Their Elderberry is full of flavor and comes in an easy to “ride” with 12oz can.
Canoe | Waveline Seltzer Huckleberry Lime Seltzer ($1.5)
Ride the easy waves with this 4% seltzer! Close your eyes and imagine gliding past some fragrant huckleberry bushes… sip… ahhh.
Cyclocross Bike | Aslan Brewing Company - Batch 15 ($2)
You’ve had a lot of cider at this point - Let’s cross over into a delicious, local beer! The actual Cyclocross leg is only 13 miles, but we’ll go the distance and pretend it’s 15, okay?
Sea Kayak | Portland Cider Co. - Lemon Lime Ciderade ($4)
You’re so close to the finish line! About time you boosted your electrolytes. Portland Cider’s Ciderade is just about the closest you’ll come to getting a sports drink from us. You’ve earned it.
