Cider Bite tap room coming to Northwest Portland

Cider Bite taproom

Like a crisp juicy apple on a hot summer day, a new taproom is taking a bite out of Portland’s growing hard cider love affair with a new taproom in the Northwest called Cider Bite. Taking over the old Fratelli restaurant and bar space at 1230 NW Hoyt, Cider Bite is only the 5th hard cider tap house in Portland.

Cider Bite will be the first good place to get a large selection of hard cider on tap in Northwest Portland and is right in the heart of the Pearl District, 3 blocks away from Rogue Flanders and 10 Barrel Brewing. Here are some photos from inside the space in it’s previous incarnation as Fratelli:
