The premiere competition for judging the quality of Canadian manufactured cider.

The Canadian Cider Awards is Canada’s national competition for judging the quality of Canadian manufactured ciders. The Canadian Cider Awards invites Canadian majority-owned cideries of all sizes to compete in a certified blind tasting determining the best ciders in a variety of categories. 

As TAPS Media prepares for the 16th Annual Canadian Brewing Awards & Conference the time is ripe to honour the Canadian cider industry. TAPS Media is excited to introduce the Canadian Cider Awards. 2018 marks the first year of the Canadian Cider Awards as a bespoke competition, no longer a footnote within the Canadian Brewing Awards & Conference.

“As a response to input from the Canadian cider industry and its continued growth, the time has come to host an all-new, stand-alone competition to honour its importance on the craft beverage landscape. We are very excited to launch the Canadian Cider Awards.”
