Strawberry started as a limited release with the name Straw-Perry, and has joined Portland Cider Co.’s other fan favorites in the brand’s first seasonal bottle lineup. New name, same amazing flavors that had loyal Portland Cider customers blowing through the limited release in record time. Paying homage to the strawberries you can only find in Oregon, Strawberry pairs well with barbecue fare, campfires and summertime water fun.

“This is hands down our most anticipated cider release of the year,” said owner Lynda Parrish. “People are really excited that we’re making more of it this year and putting it in bottles for the first time, mainly because they know they can definitely get their hands on some now! It’s medium sweet, with the perfect amount of tartness from the Oregon strawberries to provide a refreshing drink for hot weather.”
