Spotlight on Washington Cideries

It took some digging, but here is an attempt at a current list of all cideries in Washington state and a bit of info on each.  We sure have quite the cider region here!  I found quite a few I hadn’t heard of (some are very small, such as one cider variety at a winery).  Looks like I have plenty of new ciders to try!  Let me know if I missed any or there is any mis-information.
