Located in a region synonymous with apples and hops, Portland Cider Co. is determined to take advantage of the Northwest’s prime conditions for growing the fruit and turning it into something unique. Founded by an Oregonian and a British ex-pat, the Oregon City, Oregon cidery aims to bestow English traditional ciders upon Portland’s newest generation of fresh and offbeat cider drinkers. Ciders from sweet to dry and hoppy to pear-infused can be found bottled or at the Portland Cider House on the well-known Hawthorne Boulevard, plus a wide selection from outside the house lineup.
Portland Cider Co. Hop’rageous is exactly how it sounds: over-the-top hopped. However, a bit of sweetness sneaks in alongside the hop bitterness for a crisp apple comeback that reminds you it is indeed cider in your glass. Make way for the pleasant mingling of citrus on the palate and the result is a Northwest-tropical dynamic you won’t regret. Use as a gateway drug for hopheaded beer drinkers to step into the cider side.
