The Colors of Chicago Come Alive with the 2014 Inaugural Cider Cruise

The Colors of Chicago Come Alive with the 2014 Inaugural Cider Cruise

The colors of fall have come to Chicago, and Shoreline Sightseeing is here to show you the sights with our first ever Hard Cider Tasting Cruise. Open to the public ages 21 and older, the Hard Cider Tasting Cruise is an opportunity to learn more about the skills involved in creating a superb beverage – as well as how best to enjoy it!

About the Cruise

Cider Cruise

Representatives from Vander Mill Ciders, The Northman/Uncle John’s Cider, and Artisanal Imports will be on hand to share samples of their favorite seasonal ciders. These skilled craftsman will also be offering tutorials on cider tastings and educating tasters about the flavors and characteristics of each cider in order to enhance their tasting experience. In addition to the cider tasting, guests will also enjoy custom-prepared appetizers designed to complement the ciders, bringing out their distinctive characteristics.

The 90-minute tour will take place October 10 aboard the climate-controlled charter vessel Celebration as revelers enjoy the Chicago skyline along the shores of Lake Michigan. The cost for the event was $39, and it sold out quickly.

Celebrations Abound at Shoreline Sightseeing

Cider tasting isn’t the only event offered by Shoreline Sightseeing. Our celebration of Chicago has been going on all year, and we’ve had the opportunity to tour the lake with some remarkable partners. Among the events we’ve held this year are:

  • Oktoberfest with Paulina Meat Market – Oktoberfest on the water! This evening cruise featured German fare from the famous Paulina Meat Market with live German music and dancing.
  • Summer Brew Cruises with Lagunitas Brewing Company – This one of a kind experience featured quality microbrews, music, and tasty appetizers as we cruised the waters of Lake Michigan.
  • Wine Tasting Cruises with Lynfred Winery – We sailed the shores of Lake Michigan with the renowned Lynfred Winery staff, sampling generous tastings of select wines and light refreshments as we took in the views of Chicago at sunset.
