Everybody PogoNOW ON TAP and BOTTLES Around Portland, Eugene, & British Columbia - Scroll the News Feeds for listings and Tasting Events - Hoppy Cider 6.7% abv- A refreshingly dry cider that’s got hops. Our roughcut tribute to football terraces and punk rock shows, dry and quenching with a hint of sweet apple flavor, as organically grown Goldings hops do the pogo dance across your taste buds. A distinctly Oregonian product, Everybody Pogo mates Hood River apples and Willamette Valley hops. Unfiltered and lightly carbonated.

1763NOW IN BOTTLES Around Portland, Eugene, & British Columbia - Scroll the News Feeds for listings and Tasting Events - Our tribute to those who stand up against the status quo, 1763 commemorates the year of the Cider Riots in the English West Country, when cider lovers rose up and overthrew the nefarious Prime Minister Bute who imposed a tax on cider. 1763 is inspired by the West Country ciders that warranted such passion. Yamhill County grown Yarlington Mill, Harry Masters Jersey, Dabinett, & Kingston Black apples lend robust tannins, and rich flavours to a cider that’s worth fighting for.

Seasonal offerings:

Hedgerow FruitsScroll the News Feeds for listings and Tasting Events - Dry Cider with Black Currants & Italian Plums 6.9% ABV

Never Give an InchNOW ON TAP Around Portland - Scroll the News Feeds for listings and Tasting Events - Oregon Blackberry Cider 6.9% abv - A testament to determination, hard work, and downright cussedness, Never Give an Inch celebrates the spirit of Oregon. Invasive Himalaya blackberries run riot across the fencelines and fields all across western Oregon. Fire, chemical poisons, machetes, bulldozers, even goats can only beat back their inevitable advance, as they attempt to take over every square inch of cleared land. Luckily their fruits are delicious, juicy, and plentiful, spawning the phrase “as Cascadian as blackberry pie.”
In Never Give an Inch, Oregon blackberries and blackcurrants combine with Hood River and Yakima-grown apples create a tart dry cider with a fruity aroma.

Plastic PaddyBack Again in March 2015 - an Irish-style cider 6% abv - Plastic Paddy is a fun-loving easy drinking cider released in honor of the 2-litres (4.2 US pints) 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.

Tabor Neighbor™ - a hyper-local urban cider made with apples grown in the North Tabor, Montavilla, and the Mount Tabor neighborhoods of Portland, Oregon. Cider Riot! will involve the community with events such as pressing days for the Tabor Neighbor™ blend, and a traditional English wassail in January.

The Process

Cider Riot! is an urban cidery located in a detached garage off East Burnside Street in Portland's North Tabor neighborhood dedicated to the production of dry ciders. We use a variety of apples grown in Cascadia, including rare English and French cider variety apples, wild apples from Yamhill County, Oregon, and dessert apples from the Yakima and Hood River Valleys.
