Pour the Core: Brooklyn will showcase the finest locally-produced and internationally-sourced ciders – more than 30 in all – being sampled in the trendy and craft area of Greenpoint, Brooklyn at the newly built Brooklyn Expo Center.
Pour the Core: Brooklyn will feature local favorites (including Original Sin and Big Apple Hard Cider), best-selling U.S. produced ciders (including Woodchuck and Angry Orchard), and a variety of imported ciders and perries from England, Ireland, and Sweden (like Strongbow, Possman, and Rekorderlig). The event will take place indoors and outdoors and include a “cider garden” amongst food trucks.
Tickets include admission to the festival, a souvenir tasting glass and the freedom to enjoy samples from any participating exhibitor. Designated Driver tickets are available for $10. A DD ticket holder will get a bottle of water upon entering the festival. Designated drivers do NOT receive a tasting glass and are NOT permitted to sample any of the beverages at the event. No one under 21 will be admitted. Only those 21+ with valid photo ID will be admitted. No exceptions. This includes designated drivers who must be 21+ to attend.
VIP tickets are $55 and include an extra hour and access to limited VIP ciders. General admission tickets are $40. Tickets can be purchased online at PourTheCore.com/Brooklyn. The event will help raise funds for the non-profit organization, KiDS NEED MoRE. A sell-out is expected so buy your tickets early.
