Announcing the ‘Canadian Cider Awards’

As TAPS Media prepares for the 16th Annual Canadian Brewing Awards & Conference the time is ripe to honour the Canadian cider industry. TAPS Media is excited to introduce the Canadian Cider Awards. 2018 marks the first year of the Canadian Cider Awards as a bespoke competition, no longer a footnote within the Canadian Brewing Awards & Conference.

Rob Engman, President of TAPS Media explains, “As a response to input from the Canadian cider industry and its continued growth, the time has come to host an all-new, stand-alone competition to honour its importance on the craft beverage landscape. We are very excited to launch the Canadian Cider Awards.”

The Canadian Cider Awards is the first national competition inviting majority Canadian-owned cider producers of all sizes across Canada to compete in a certified blind tasting to determine who produces the best ciders. The Canadian Cider Awards will judge Canadian produced ciders in 6 different categories, announcing winners in each category.
