A Michigan-made hard cider competition that’s said to be the world’s largest will be the featured event during Grand Rapids Cider Week this month.

The Great Lakes International Cider & Perry Competition, or GLINTCAP, will celebrate its 10th year on April 10-12, and the newly formed Michigan Cider Association wants people to know about, said GLINTCAP Director Eric West.

The association wants to “capitalize on cider in Michigan the way Denver has with the Great American Beer Festival,” West said.

“It’s just following that model,” he said. “The competition anchors the week, and we worked with the association to get some outward facing events to help make it more of a happening event.”
