For the first time ever, the Oregon Brewers Festival presented two ciders in 2018.
Cider Riot! (Portland, OR)
Everyday Passionfruit is a refreshing cider made from Pacific Northwest grown apples and passionfruit. It’s a cool trip to the tropics for your tastebuds. Naturally tart passionfruit is balanced with just a touch of sweetness for a quaffable cider with a rich, ripe fruity aroma. Cider Riot! is dedicated to producing refreshing ciders, with a pub and production facility just across the Burnside Bridge from the festival.
OG: 10.7 | FG: 0 | ABV: 6 | IBU: 0
Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider (Portland, OR)
Viva La Pineapple (Cider)
Onto a base of rich hard cider made from a blend of Granny Smith and other Washington-grown dessert apple varieties, Reverend Nat added a dash of Mauritian dark muscovado (a raw unrefined brown sugar), lemon zest, and 20% fresh pineapple juice hailing from The Philippines. Add in a blend of three spices (cinnamon, allspice and cloves), and this fresh and authentic-tasting pineapple cider presents like a Summer Shandy or Radler due to the heavy hand on the fruity pineapple juice.
OG: 12.5 | FG: 2.8 | ABV: 6 | IBU: 0
