Portland’s Cider Riot! is set to release its new summer seasonal, Lemmy’s Summer Camp Meyer Lemon Cider. This will mark the cider makers second venture into plastic 2-liter flagons after its successful Plastic Paddy.
What makes Lemmy’s Summer Camp Meyer Lemon Cider stand out is the added Meyer lemon zest that gives this dry cider a thirst-quenching tartness. “It’s like the fun grown up summer camp you’ve never had,” says Cider Riot! founder and cidermaker Abram Goldman-Armstrong. “Try it and you’ll be a happy camper.”
To make this new release even more entertaining for its fans is that Lemmy’s Summer Camp gives drinkers the opportunity to earn the “merit badge” patches depicted on the label. This will be accomplished by submitting photos of themselves and their friends enjoying Lemmy’s whilst making the most out of the out of doors to ciderriot.com/summer or by sending actual photos to the cidery: Lemmy c/o Cider Riot! 25 NE 60th Ave, Portland, Oregon 97213. Participants who earn all six of the embroidered merit badges will get a Cider Riot! Wild and Free patch as well.
Lemmy’s Summer Camp is for grown up riot grrls and misfit boys who know how to make the most out of Cascadia’s great outdoors. Meyer lemon zest gives Lemmy’s Summer Camp Meyer Lemon dry cider a bite, like a jump in a glacier-fed lake, making it the perfect companion for all your summertime activities.
Cider Riot! first produced its Meyer Lemon Cider in 2014 for the Cider Summit in Portland where it was a smash hit, and will be featuring it again at this year’s event June 19-20th in the Fields Park in NW Portland’s Pearl District. The Cider Summit kicks of Oregon Cider Week, for which Cider Riot! is hosting a number of special events.
Lemmy’s Summer Camp 2-liter flagons will be sold in better bottleshops and grocery stores throughout Oregon and Washington this summer. Cider Riot! is self-distributed in both states, and its ciders are sold through the LDB in British Columbia, with limited availability in Norway and Japan.
