Inaugural 'Pour the Core' Festival Aims to Start
a Hard Cider Revolution in Boston

Boston, MA. July 21, 2015 – Stemming off of successful runs in Philadelphia and Long Island, with a recent production in Brooklyn (NY), award-winning event producer Starfish Junction is bringing America’s historic beverage to the home of the American Revolution with Pour the Core: A Hard Cider Festival - Boston. The festival will be held on Saturday, September 12, 2015 in two sessions – 12:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. – at Royale in Boston’s Theatre District at 279 Tremont Street, Boston, MA 02116. Tickets and more information are available at

Mark your calendars to explore the ever-expanding world of hard ciders and perries (ciders made from pears) as you join hundreds of your fellow fans in tasting over 75 ciders from more than 30 different local and international cider companies. The home of the American Revolution will be represented through Massachusetts’ own Downeast Cider House and Lookout Farm Hard Cider, with well known best-sellers Woodchuck Cider and Angry Orchard pouring liquid proof of hard cider’s recently found success in the United States, as well as imported international flavors.

Event Manager Kristyn Dolan is excited to introduce the festival to Boston, “In revolutionary times, ciders were thought of highly and were very popular among Colonial settlers. As ciders become more and more popular in modern times, we’re excited to help grow excitement and education around the beverage by hosting this festival in New England where apple trees were first grown and cider was a staple at ever table.” Dolan continued to note that the event is great for those that are already enthusiastic cider consumers and are interested in expanding their palate, as well as the average Bostonian who wants to try something new or may be curious about cider. The festival is sure to be an event enjoyed by all!

The festival will also help raise funds for non-profit organization The Barton Center for Diabetes Education and the United States Association of Cider Makers. Tickets are on sale at for both sessions. Tickets are $50 each and include admission into the festival, a souvenir five-ounce tasting glass from sponsor Woodchuck Hard Cider, two-ounce pour samples from all participating vendors, and access to cider seminars. Designated Driver (DD) tickets are available for $10 and will include admission, seminar access, and a bottle of water. No one under 21 will be admitted, including DDs; valid 21+ photo identification is required for festival admittance.
