Portland Cider Co. Releases Concord Grape Cider

Portland Cider Co. has announced the release of Concord Grape cider will be available in 22oz bottles and on draft starting this Thursday, Jan. 17th at the ‘Grape Gatsby’ release party. Grape is a blend of 100 percent Northwest apple cider and freshly-pressed Northwest Concord grapes. This royal purple-colored cider is the crowning jewel of Portland Cider’s seasonal releases.

More from a press release:
Portland Cider Co. will celebrate the release with a “Grape Gatsby” party at both its Portland-area pubs on Thursday, Jan. 17, from 4pm to 9pm. The event will feature two cider cocktails with a Roaring Twenties theme, and guests who show up in dapper and flapper duds will receive a special discount.
“We first bottled Concord Grape last year, and already it’s become one of our most popular seasonal cider releases,” explained owner Lynda Parrish. “It’s light-bodied with a strong grape juice nose and a semi-sweet finish that makes for an incredibly refreshing treat that conjures fond memories with just one sip.”
Portland’s Concord Grape Cider originated as a collaboration project made with Waz Wu, chapter director of Veganizer Portland, for the Willamette Week Beer & Cider Pro-Am in October 2017. The collaboration cider took home the People’s Choice award at the event, and Portland Cider started bottling it soon after.
Concord Grape is available through April in 22-oz. bottles and in 1/6-barrel and 1/2-barrel draft kegs. It can be purchased at either of the company’s two taprooms, as well as at select retailers in Oregon, Washington, and Northern California. Visit Portlandcider.com/concord-grape for more information.
