Bookings close tomorrow for Cider Australia Master Class

Fancy yourself a cider connoisseur? Simply a humble consumer who wants to learn more about the methods used to create your favourite tipple?

Then, Cider Australia’s judging master class in Melbourne is the place you need to be.

The event, to be held this Monday, September 29, at the Brunswick Street Cider House in Fitzroy, will be led by New Zealand expert Malcolm Reeves.

Mr Reeves is flying to Australia to be the guest international judge for the 2014 Australian Cider Awards – which have received a record number of entries from around the country.

He is looking forward to sharing his knowledge and passion for perry and cider with an Australian audience.

“The class will cover everything from international cider trends and judging methods to who won the grand final!” says Cider Australia president Sam Reid.

“This is an important precursor to the judging of the Awards, which will start the following day.”

The Master Class will run from 9.30am till noon and finish with a rustic ploughman’s lunch.

Tickets are just $40 including lunch.

But places are limited and bookings close tomorrow – to secure your place, please RSVP to by COB tomorrow.
