The Seattle –> Portland influx continues with Schilling Cider opening up a new taproom in the currently in construction Goat Blocks development at SE 10th and Belmont in Portland. Seattle based Schilling Cider operates a pretty great taproom in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle with many guest taps from the Pacific Northwest and their new PDX location is right across the street from Cascade Barrel House. The Schilling Cider House is hoping to open in the spring of 2017.
More from the recent announcement:
Schilling Cider House Portland will follow the same cider ethos as the Seattle flagship location; They will only serve and sell craft hard ciders. This means all of the ciders sold and poured at Schilling Cider Houses must be independently owned, naturally gluten-free, use no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, and must be made using 100% apple juice (nothing from concentrate).
WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT THE PORTLAND LOCATION
In addition to having 50 rotating taps of craft only hard cider, and outdoor patio and deck seating with a cozy fire, the Portland location will be offering locally sourced sausages, tots, and the like out of their gluten-free kitchen. There will also be a bottle selection focusing on hard to find international cider, staff picks, and new cider makers. “There are a lot of great up and coming craft cider makers in Oregon, and the focus of the Portland location is to highlight all of the great things they are doing” says Colin.
ABOUT SCHILLING CIDER
In 1881, Colin Schilling’s great-great-grandfather, August, founded the Schilling Spice Company in San Francisco. He brought pure, natural, spices to everyone, at a fair price. Today, at Schilling Cider, we carry August’s core values forward and pair them with innovative cider-making techniques to produce quality, complex, hard ciders.
Originally founded in Seattle, Washington, Schilling Cider captures the essence of the Pacific Northwest by creating ciders that are deliberately innovative, bold and flavor forward. We use only 100% fresh pressed apples, locally sourced non-GMO ingredients and individually hand select yeast strains to create a cider experience that is truly unique.
