Love apples? Then, drink apples! Gather with fellow apple enthusiasts, hard cider aficionados, fermentation zealots, and craft beverage fanatics at Brooklyn's premier hard cider festival, Pour The Core: Brooklyn.

At Pour The Core: Brooklyn, you and your friends will gather in Brooklyn's trendy and crafty Greenpoint neighborhood and be showcased to the finest locally-produced and internationally-sourced ciders – more than 75 styles produced by over 40 different cider makers! The event will feature local favorites like Big Apple Hard Cider and Original Sin; best-selling US brands like Woodchuck Hard Cider and Angry Orchard; and a variety of imported ciders and perries from Spain, England and elsewhere, like Strongbow.

So get your sunglasses ready and kick off summer with cider and local grub from the city's favorite food trucks! The event will take place rain or shine (no refunds).

There will be free seminars for ticketholders about cider, the making of cider, and the enjoyment of cider. The event will also help raise funds for KiDS NEED MoRE. Visit the charity page to find out more about this great organization.
