Cider Riot! makes some serious ciders, from rare cider apples grown specifically from heirloom trees. We also like to have fun. Plastic Paddy is a fun-loving easy drinking cider released in honor of the 2-litres of Irish cider that Cider Riot! founder and cidermaker Abram Goldman-Armstrong enjoyed so much as a student at University College Cork.
American dessert apples lack the characteristic tannins of European cider apples, so in order to replicate the flavor profile of a dry Irish cider, we use Barry’s Gold Blend tea from County Cork to infuse the cider with just enough tannins to balance the natural acids of the Hood River dessert apples used to make it.
Plastic Paddy is packaged in the traditional 2-liter Irish flagon, making it the perfect package for picnics and the old Cork tradition of gatting (drinking in parks)*. A flagon is the perfect size to share with friends and family, translating to 67 ounces, or just larger than a growler, a two-liter holds 4.2 US pints.
Plastic Paddy is released for Paddy’s Day, and will be available through March and April.
Cider Riot! is an urban cidery located in Portland’s North Tabor neighborhood just off East Burnside Street, dedicated to the production of refreshing dry ciders. Cider Riot! was founded in 2013 by Abram Goldman-Armstrong, after 18 years as a home cidermaker and home brewer. Abram has collaborated with several craft breweries to create such well-known beers as Widmer Brothers Green and Gold Kölsch, and Hopworks Secession. Cider Riot!’s dry ciders are currently available on draft, and 500ml glass bottles will be available in April.
Abe will be at Bushwhacker pouring samples from bottle of Plastic Paddy and Bushwhacker will have both Plastic Paddy and Cider Riot's first release Everybody Pogo on draft. Bottles of Plastic Paddy will be available to go.
