A testament to determination, hard work, and downright cussedness, Never Give an Inch celebrates the spirit of Oregon.

- 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.

- Seasonal offerings

Plastic PaddySeason: Late Winter - Spring - 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.

Lemmy's Summer CampSeason: Late Spring to Summer - Meyer Lemon Cider 6% abv - Lemmy’s Summer Camp is for grown up riot grrls and misfit boys who know how to make the most out of Cascadia’s great outdoors.

Rudy'sSeason: Fall to Winter - NOW IN 500ml & 2 LITER BOTTLES - Cranberry Hibiscus cider 6% abv - Dance to the rhythm of Northwestern apples! The party never stops in the Northwest, even when the rainy fall season begins to set in. That's when we pick up the tempo, drop the rude beats, and brighten up those dim days with a two-tone assault of fruit and floral flavor and aroma. Rudy's Cranberry Hibiscus is a dry, refreshing cider fermented from local apples blended with Starvation Alley cold-pressed organic cranberry juice from Long Beach, Washington, then aged on organic hibiscus flowers. The cranberry gives the cider a bright, crisp tartness, while the hibiscus flowers provide an earthy, balanced overtone of tannic flavor and floral aroma. Great for Thanksgiving dinner, a soak in the hot springs, or a rowdy ska show at a local dive bar, Rudy brings flavor to the dance floor and festivity to the party!
