Founded in 2013 by Abram Goldman-Armstrong, Cider Riot! started out as an urban cidery located in a detached garage off East Burnside Street in Portland’s North Tabor neighborhood. They have now grown into a large production facility including an awesome tasting room complete with lounge room and more. Dedicated to the production of dry ciders, they 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.

This off-dry New World cider boasts aromas of stonefruit and harvest-ripe apples, and flavors of fresh apple, rife with crisp, refreshing acids and a mild sweetness perfect for any time of day.

A distinctly North American take on a classic pub cider, this semi-dry cider marries the frontier spirit with a hint of Old World inspiration. With a body of Northwest dessert apples and a stiff upper lip of English cider apples, New Wave is something new. Like the New Wave music scene this cider riffs on great ciders from both sides of the Atlantic for a distinct flavor that hits that note of individuality, that’s sure to be a classic. Bright crisp apple notes in aroma and flavor, with a just a tickle of traditional cider apple tannins, and just the inkling of sweetness.
- Cider - Dry
Our flagship pub draught heritage cider blends Yamhill County bittersweets and bittersharps with dessert apples from Yakima and Hood River. Just like Portland’s Old Main Drag, Burncider® has a rich history and flavorful character. Inspired by the dry pub draught ciders of the English West Country, Burncider blends Oregon-grown traditional English cider apples; including Yarlington Mill, Dabinett and Muscadet de Bernay, tart wild apples from the woods of Yamhill County, and dessert apples from the Hood River and Yakima Valleys. Burncider uses both wine and ale yeasts to bring out the nuances of tannin, acid and flavor from this unique mix of apples. Burncider is the perfect accompaniment for a ploughman’s platter, lamb stew or an aged cheddar.
