14 MN cideries will offer unlimited samples at a festival next month

All-you-can drink cider for $30? Sign me up.

What better way to celebrate fall than to drink a bunch of Minnesota-made cider? 

The Minnesota Cider Guild is hosting a cider fair at Minnesota Harvest Orchard in Jordan on Oct. 22, where people can sample ciders from 14 different local cideries. 

The Minnesota Cider Fair is a little different than the popular beer festivals that happen around Minnesota several times a year. 

Yes there's the unlimited samples pass for $30 (with a souvenir tasting glass), but there's also the option to try just a few ciders by buying drink tickets. 

Each ticket is good for one 2-ounce pour of cider (tickets are sold at the event in increments of four for $10). 

This even aims to highlight what's going on in Minnesota's cider industry and educate people about how cider is made. In addition to all the ciders you can drink, there will be live music, food, apple picking, wagon rides, and other fall activities. 

The event is from 1-5 p.m. For more information, click here
