Winter Wassail Release & Carnival
January 13 @ 5:00 pm - January 14 @ 12:00 am
Please join C Squared Ciders at our tasting room, the Rackhouse, for our Third Annual Winter Wassail Release and Carnival. We are located in the heart of RiNo at 2875 Blake St., Denver, CO.
Here’s what the evening will have in store:
Tapping of Wassail 2018: A mysteriously dark, semi-sweet small batch cider infused with mulling spice, ginger, and gluten free roasted malt. 6% ABV.
Winter Carnival – We’ll be celebrating all night in the beer hall with a variety of entertainers including but not limited to:
Pulled Pork Sandwich + Cider Slaw
Wassailing is a pagan tradition in English cider orchards to wish the trees good health and a good harvest in the coming year. Though details differ from orchard to orchard, the premise is the same: frighten away evil spirits from the orchard; welcome good spirits into the orchard; and express gratitude for the orchard’s abundance and wish it health for the upcoming year.
We’ll frighten away evil spirits with our off key Wassail singing; and we’ll welcome good spirits by hanging toast from the tree. We’ll toast the tree and give a bit of cider back to it in appreciation of last year’s harvest.
