Everybody PogoNOW ON TAP and BOTTLES in Oregon, Washington, & British Columbia - Scroll the News Feeds for listings and Tasting Events - Hoppy Cider 6.7% abv- A refreshingly dry cider that’s got hops. Our roughcut tribute to football terraces and punk rock shows, dry and quenching with a hint of sweet apple flavor, as organically grown Goldings hops do the pogo dance across your taste buds. A distinctly Oregonian product, Everybody Pogo mates Hood River apples and Willamette Valley hops. Unfiltered and lightly carbonated.

Never Give an InchNOW ON TAP & in BOTTLES in Oregon, Washington, & British Columbia- Scroll the News Feeds for listings and Tasting Events - Oregon Blackberry Cider 6.9% abv - A testament to determination, hard work, and downright cussedness, Never Give an Inch celebrates the spirit of Oregon. Invasive Himalaya blackberries run riot across the fencelines and fields all across western Oregon. Fire, chemical poisons, machetes, bulldozers, even goats can only beat back their inevitable advance, as they attempt to take over every square inch of cleared land. Luckily their fruits are delicious, juicy, and plentiful, spawning the phrase “as Cascadian as blackberry pie.”
In Never Give an Inch, Oregon blackberries and blackcurrants combine with Hood River and Yakima-grown apples create a tart dry cider with a fruity aroma.

Behind the Barricades™:

- Reserve Line

1763NOW IN BOTTLES In Oregon and Washington - Scroll the News Feeds for listings and Tasting Events - Our tribute to those who stand up against the status quo, 1763 commemorates the year of the Cider Riots in the English West Country, when cider lovers rose up and overthrew the nefarious Prime Minister Bute who imposed a tax on cider. 1763 is inspired by the West Country ciders that warranted such passion. Yamhill County grown Yarlington Mill, Harry Masters Jersey, Dabinett, & Kingston Black apples lend robust tannins, and rich flavours to a cider that’s worth fighting for.

Black Bloc™:

- Super Limited Relase Line

Our Black Bloc Series™ ciders are our most hardcore and intense, and apt to disappear into the crowd before you know it.
These super limited edition ciders use rare apples varieties, traditional techniques and extended aging. Limited to a few cases per release, Black Bloc ciders are available only while supplies last. The Black Bloc Series embodies our love and reverence for the cider apple. Though they are all dressed the same in black ink and cherrywood labels, each of these ciders represent a broad spectrum of flavors and diversity of cidermaking techniques. If you visit our website you can read each member of the black bloc’s manifesto.

The first release in the Black Bloc series is our Bogman’s Cranberry Brettanomyces cider - NOW IN BOTTLES Available in Oregon and Washington - Scroll the News Feeds for listings and Tasting Events -. Bogman’s is a blend of over twenty different cider and dessert apple varieties aged for a year on natural brettanomyces from the orchard where the apples were grown. Oregon cranberries were added to add a touch of acidity to balance the flavors of the brett. The cider was then allowed to bottle condition for nine months, to achieve a smooth round carbonation. It’s been a long road from the initial pressing in 2013 to your glass in 2015, so savor the complexity of this Black Bloc cider before it vanishes.

Seasonal offerings:

Plastic PaddyNOW IN BOTTLES Available in Oregon and Washington - Scroll the News Feeds for listings and Tasting Events - an Irish-style cider 6% abv - Plastic Paddy is a fun-loving easy drinking cider released in honor of the 2-litres (4.2 US pints) of Irish cider that Cider Riot! founder and cidermaker Abram Goldman-Armstrong enjoyed so much as a student at University College Cork. American dessert apples lack the characteristic tannins of European cider apples, so in order to replicate the flavor profile of a dry Irish cider, we use Barry’s Gold Blend tea from County Cork to infuse the cider with just enough tannins to balance the natural acids of the Hood River dessert apples used to make it.
