Oregon City, OR – The Portland Cider Company today announced it will celebrate the grand opening of its public taproom on February 15, 2014, from noon-10:00 pm. Pints, growler fills and sample flights of all the company’s widely available ciders, along with samples of unreleased and limited availability ciders, will be poured. Following the grand opening, the taproom will be open Tuesdays – Sundays, check website as hours vary. The tap room is not open to minors.
The new taproom, built adjacent to the Portland Cider Company’s production facility in Oregon City, is a long-anticipated addition to the cider house. “Ever since we bottled our first cider last year, we’ve wanted to add a taproom so customers can visit the cidery and see what goes into the process,” said Owner and Chief Ciderist Jeff Parrish. “Since we’re always experimenting with new and different blends of cider, and not everything we produce gets distributed, this gives us the opportunity to share those with our customers.” In addition to the cider selections, branded merchandise, including t-shirts, glasses, growlers and tap handles will be available for purchase at the taproom.
The Portland Cider Company taproom has a rustic feel, reminiscent of an old-world cider house. The bar is fashioned from a slab of sequoia redwood and the walls are covered in cedar planking. “We wanted to make the taproom feel like you stepped out into the country and back in time,” Parrish explained.
About Portland Cider Company – The Portland Cider Company was started in October 2012 by an Oregonian and a family of British expats with the mission of bringing cider, handcrafted in the English tradition, to the Northwest. For more information, visit www.portlandcider.com.
