With the holidays on the horizon Portland Cider Company has just released its popular Cranberry Cider to its lineup of seasonal ciders in bottles and on draft.

For its final seasonal cider of the year Portland Cider used only two ingredients to make its Cranberry Cider. The cidery used a fermented blend of fresh cranberries from Everest Farms in Bandon, Oregon and fresh pressed Northwest apple juice. The result is a medium sweet and slightly tart cider, reminiscent of a cranberry relish.

“Our cranberry cider this year is better than it has ever been,” stated owner Jeff Parrish in a statement. “This marks our third year producing this cider with fresh cranberries from Everest Farms, and our experience from previous years has taught us how to get the most from their fruit. The result is absolutely delicious!”

Cranberry Cider is described as offering notes of orange zest, a tart finish, and a beautiful red color, this full-bodied cider is the ideal complement to the Thanksgiving meal. It pairs well with turkey – especially smoked turkey – spinach salad, meatloaf, and buttery, soft cheeses like brie.

Portland Cider Co.’s Cranberry cider is available now through December in 22 oz. bottles and draft kegs. It can be purchased at either of the company’s two taprooms located at 3638 SE Hawthorne Blvd., Portland, OR 97214; and 8925 SE Jannsen Rd, Bldg. F, Clackamas, OR 97015, as well as at select retailers in Oregon, Washington, and Colorado.
