Hard Core Cider Tour
Join us as we tour California with some of the World’s Top Hard Cider Makers. The Hard Core Cider Tour: Los Angeles takes place on November 7th, 2015 at Brookside Park (next to the Rose Bowl) from 12pm to 4pm. If imbibing from craft artisanal and ciders has not convinced you, perhaps mouth watering food from some of L.A. best Food Trucks (food sold separately), Live Music, and Jumbo Lawn Games will do the trick! The Hard Core Cider Tour is about much more than great ciders, live music, and having a blast. At every Tour Stop, we give back to a local charity that benefits from a portion of the proceeds of every ticket sold. This year, we are raising funds for Enrich LA.
