Chicago Cider Week Cider Cruise Launch Party
Kick off the 6th Annual Chicago Cider Week with The Northman Beer & Cider Garden! Join us for a spectacular Cider Cruise aboard Chicagos Leading Lady. There will be numerous producers sampling cider around the boat, as well as hors d'oeuvres from The Northman menu. During the 2-hour cruise, we will host a few short talks on the history of cider, learn about the exciting week ahead, and enjoy a little architectural history along the Chicago River.

Tickets cover the architectural cruise itself, as well as the food and cider during the cruise. There will be a wide variety of cider available for all you cider loving folk as well as a craft beer option for the non-believers! For those who like to enjoy cocktails & wine they will be available for purchase with a credit or debit card from the Emerald Lady's Bar. Cash is not accepted onboard the boat.

Hor d'oeuvres will be served on board the cruise and are included in the ticket price. No other food will be available for purchase during the cruise. Join us at The Northman Beer & Cider Garden pre-cruise for a light dinner before you board!
