Portland Cider Co.will soon expand to the Portland Metro Area’s west side in a the new West End District development in Beaverton, Oregon. This forthcoming location will be the cider maker’s third retail location and the first one west of the Willamette River.
Located at the corner of Murray Boulevard and Tualatin Valley Highway, the new pub is slated to open its doors in spring of 2022, joining other retail tenants on the ground level of the new neighborhood. The pub will offer 24 taps featuring Portland Cider’s own craft ciders, as well as guest beers from other local producers. The atmosphere will be reminiscent of a modern beer hall, with callbacks to the company’s English roots. The menu will feature simple pub fare and small plates, inspired by NW and English cuisine favorites, with abundant cider-to-go options available.
“We are so proud to be able to open our third pub after the hectic past year,” said co-owner Lynda Parrish, in a statement. “Years ago, Jeff and I lived in Beaverton, and we’ve been waiting for the perfect space to become available in that area. Now that it has, we finally have a convenient location for our westside friends and fans to come and join us for some cider.”
Portland Cider Co. will continue to operate its Portland Cider House on Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard in Portland, and its Clackamas Pub and Cidery on Southeast Janssen Road.
The Clackamas based cider maker recently celebrated its 8th anniversary. During its eight years, Portland Cider Co. has an established record of community involvement and partnerships with local makers. The company regularly crafts collaboration ciders, hosts giveaways and finds partners to encourage its fans to explore the Pacific Northwest and shop at local businesses. And in 2020, Portland Cider Co. donated $12,500 to Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon from the sales of its fifth annual PDX Community Cider, crafted with donations of fallen fruit from around the region.
“We’re looking forward to connecting with the other businesses that move into the West End District with us,” said Helen Lewis, Portland Cider’s marketing director, in a statement. “We get to build this business community from the ground up together, bringing some urban Portland vibes to the western suburbs.”
Portland Cider Co. ciders are available at its two current locations, as well as at select retailers around Oregon, Washington and Northern California. Fans can use the Cider Finder to locate nearby resellers.
