Maker’s Happy Hour – Cider Riot!, Alma Chocolate and Ancient Heritage Dairy

Maker’s Happy Hour returns to Portland-based confectioner Alma Chocolate along with Portland’s urban creamery Ancient Heritage Dairy on Friday, April 7 from 4:00 to 6:00pm. Joining these two businesses for April’s First Friday event will be Cider Riot!.

During the Maker’s Happy Hour be ready to sample Alma’s craft confections including the new seasonal Meyer Lemon bon bons, caramel filled bunnies, chocolate frogs and Ancient Heritage artisan cheese made from cow and sheep’s milk. Cider Riot! will pour samples from its line-up of locally crafted cider.

The Maker’s Happy Hour takes place every First Friday at The Café at Alma Chocolate in the Weatherly Creamery Building at 1323 SE 7th Avenue. During this time all cheese and confections are available to purchase at a 15% discount.


Ancient Heritage Dairy crafts artisan cheese by hand in the heart of SE Portland. Their lineup displays a variety of stunning cow and sheep’s milk wonders, from soft, oozing rounds to hard, crystallized wedges.

Alma Chocolate makes modern classics you can believe in: toffees, pralines, bonbons, toffee and bars all made by hand and capped in luscious, ethical chocolate. Preview one of Alma’s seasonal bon bons made from Meyer lemons with a white chocolate ganache filling and covered in dark chocolate.

Cider Riot is located in Portland’s vibrant inner Eastside, just off Burnside Street. Cider Riot is an urban cidery with a pub and tasting room dedicated to the production of refreshing, thirst quenching, 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.
