On Saturday, April 27, March First will host Ciderpalooza, a big-ass craft cider festival at its taproom in Sycamore.

More than a dozen breweries and cideries from across the country will be offering eight-ounce and 10-ounce pours for $5 each. Besides ciders from March First, other producers include:

  • Michigan’s B. Nektar Meadery, Starcut Ciders and Vander Mill
  • Portland’s Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider
  • Bostons Downeast Cider
  • Pennsylvania's Wyndridge Farm
  • Wisconsin's Ciderboys
  • Wilmington, Ohio's TinCap
  • Rhinegeist
  • MadTree
  • Braxton
  • Original Sin Cider
  • Sonder Brewing
  • Swine City
  • Wooden Cask

Different ciders will be on tap in different rooms and at different times — from patios to the taproom and a "cider garden" — so check the March First Facebook page for more details on when and where to find your favorites.

Along with samples of specialty and regular cider, there will be live music all day and food from The Chili Hut and Carbonara's Grill.

11 a.m.-1 a.m. April 27. Free admission. March First Brewing, 7885 Kemper Road, Sycamore, marchfirstbrewing.com.
