Maybe the growth is associated with the rise of gluten-intolerance. Perhaps it’s the first alcoholic beverage you’ve tried. Or maybe you just need an alternative to drinking a shot of scotch, a glass of wine, or a pint of beer. Whatever the inspiration for consuming cider you’re not the only one.
Which is why Portland’s Bushwhacker Cidery (located on 1212-D SE Powell Blvd. Portland, OR 97202) unlocked their doors three years ago. With a focus on operating as the country’s “first urban Cider Pub” we think they are on the right track. So why not head over to Bushwacker to congratulate them, Saturday September 21st.
Starting at 4pm, Bushwacker is hosting an all-day party to commemorate their 3 years in Portland. Not content to treat Saturday as “business as usual” cideries 2 Towns, Bull Run, Finnegan, as well as Farmhouse will also be in attendance.
More on Bushwacker Cidery’s 3rd Anniversary celebration
Bushwhacker's current tap selection of 8 rotating drafts will be bumped up with two jockey boxes so that the bar will have 12 ciders on tap for the day to complete a mini fest style atmosphere. The cider makers will be pouring FREE samples of their wares from 3-6 and the Brooklyn House will be grilling sausages with a choice between brats made with Bushwhacker Cider or Green Flash beer. Live music will be provided by two of Portland's best singer/songwriters Leigh Marble and Shoeshine Blue from 4-7pm. While away the day enjoying great cider, relaxing music, tasty food and a game of Cornhole on Bushwhacker's brand new boards in an extended for the day patio!
