About Portland Cider

Through the marriage of English traditions
and Northwest micro-cidery techniques, Portland Cider Co. was established in 2012 by Jeff & Lynda Parrish. 

Lynda, an ex-patriot from the Somerset region of England (the Mecca of cider), married Oregon native Jeff, inspiring the English-style ciders crafted from Northwest apples Portland Cider is known for.

A long time home fermenter, Jeff visited Lynda's hometown of Bristol shortly after their wedding, where they both visited several local cideries and learned about the craft of English cider. That trip was the catalyst that turned a hobby into a passion, which escalated quickly back at home. Soon, all their friends loved the Parrish homemade cider and were encouraging Jeff & Lynda to sell it - and thus Portland Cider Co. was born.

Drink Spotlight: Portland Kinda Dry Cider

 

 

Our take on a Traditional English cider, in honor of owner Lynda's heritage, made of 100% Northwest apples. Dry, lightly carbonated, with subtle apple flavors, and a lingering fresh finish. One of the two original ciders of Portland Cider Co. and available year-round!

We use fresh pressed juice from a blend of NW grown culinary apples, then carefully ferment them with a yeast that preserves their subtle characteristics. The cider is given time to develop to its full potential, before we bottle or keg at just the right time.

Just off dry, light, clean, refreshing, with a pleasant finish, Kinda Dry is the cider to always have on hand.

 

APPLES

  • Gala
  • Honeycrisp
  • Granny Smith
  • Jonagold
  • Golden Delicious

 

TASTING NOTES

subtle apple notes, classic English cider style, balanced dryness

 

FOOD PAIRINGS

Drink Spotlight: Portland Hop’Rageous Cider

 

 

Take a balanced dry cider, infuse it with the fragrant Citra variety of hops, then double down on the citrus notes of those hops by throwing in some bitter orange peel, and the result is an outrageously refreshing hopped cider that can only be described as Hop’rageous!  With equal notes of bitter hop and tangy citrus, this unexpected combination pairs well with anything coming off the grill.

 

INGREDIENTS

  • Citra hops (TM)
  • Orange peel
  • Gala apples
  • Honeycrisp apples
  • Golden delicious apples
  • Fuji apples

 

TASTING NOTES

unfiltered, dry apple, lychee fruit on tongue, grapefruit & orange peel finish

 

FOOD PAIRINGS

spaghetti, classic hamburger, cajun seasoned food

Beer Spotlight: Laurelwood Pumpkin Ale

 

 

Pumpkin beer is a reminder that the summer is waning, that the fall harvest is in full force and the changing of the seasons is upon us. Our pumpkin ale has a strong malt backbone giving it a malt flavor much like pie crust. We add generous amounts of pumpkin and a restrained amount of spices giving it that wonderful pumpkin pie aroma. The result is a smooth and silky amber strong ale with a warm, spicy nose and rich, malty body. Relax, and let Laurelwood pumpkin ale set you aglow like a jack o’lantern!

Drink Spotlight: Kalita Wave Dripper

 

 

A staff favorite for home brews and camp coffee

The flat-bottom filter helps with even extraction while brewing an exceptional cup. The key to mastering this brewer is the slow spiral pour – a gooseneck kettle will help you master this method.

  • Brews a single 10 oz cup
  • Flat bottom for even extraction
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Made in Japan
  • Size #185
  • Weighs 5.6 oz (160 g)

 

With its stainless steel and wavy contours, the Kalita Wave wins over coffee and design enthusiasts alike.

 

 

About the company

You are smelling the most complex thing humans consume. When people talk about the flavors of coffee — notes of orange, or hints of clove — it’s because those organic molecules are contained in the coffee bean. If a coffee reminds you of apple pie, it's because coffee shares some of the same components as food, like lactic and malic acid.

Inside that small bean are the same natural components that make flowers smell so lovely, the same ethers that let you know when a piece of fruit is ripe. Coffee has twice as much going on, molecularly speaking, as red wine.

When tasting coffee, try waiting for it to cool down a little — you’ll be able to taste (and smell) the most when it’s the same temperature as your body.

Flavor only matters in the context of you. What do you like? What does this scent remind you of? Are you looking for a full-bodied cowboy co ffee, or a delicate, tea-like finish? Chocolate aromas, or hints of jasmine?

Don’t worry if you can’t describe it precisely, or have a different perception than someone else. Even when you can’t put it into words, you’ll know what you like.

Personal Care Spotlight: Otter Wax Spruce Cologne Solid

 

 
Piloted by Cedar, this fragrance is accentuated by the intricacies of Sandalwood, Vetiver, and Douglas Fir rounded with subtle notes of bergamot, lime, and valencia orange.

 

About Solids
Solids last longer than their liquid counterparts because the essential fragrance oils don't easily evaporate. The scent develops slower over time allowing the deeper notes to come out and react with your own body's temperature and chemistry.

Use
Create a divot in the center of fragrance. Massage a small amount of solid onto neck, wrists, and pressure points

Ingredients
Beeswax, shea butter, vetiver (vetiveria zizanioides) essential oil, virginian cedarwood (juniperus virginiana) essential oil, sri lankan black pepper (piper nigrum) essential oil, bergamot (citrus bergamia) essential oil, valencia orange (citrus sinensis) essential oil, douglas fir needle (pseudotsuga douglasii) essential oil, lime (citrus aurantifolia) essential oil, sandalwood (santalum spicatum) essential oil.
 

 

About the Company
At Otter Wax, we know that quality can't be rushed. Our line of all-natural Fabric Care, Leather Care, and Apothecary products, are formulated and hand-made right here in Portland, Oregon.

Right down to the recyclable packaging, our products are simple and natural. We do not use any animal fats, fillers, petroleum distillates, mineral oil or chemical preservatives.

At Otter Wax, we believe that labeling a product as All-Natural should not be used as a marketing tool, but rather as a way of demonstrating our commitment to making products that are pure, honest, (and most importantly) effective. Read More

Widmer Brothers Adding 5 New Beers in 2013

Widmer Brothers Brewing is celebrating the start of a new year with five new beer releases and some bold new packaging updates. The releases include two brand new Widmer Brothers beers: Columbia Common Spring Ale, the new recurring spring seasonal from the brewery, and Chocolate Russian Imperial Stout ‘13, a version of KGB Russian Imperial Stout brewed with Ecuadorian cocoa nibs. Additionally, three fan favorites will return as part of the brewery’s spring lineup: O’Ryely IPA, KGB Russian Imperial Stout and Raspberry Russian Imperial Stout ‘13.

“Our team is looking forward to introducing some new beers and bringing back some old favorites to kick off the year,” said Rob Widmer, co-founder of the brewery. “The best part is that each beer has a great story. KGB has been a favorite of ours for almost 15 years; Columbia Common is a great version of the common beer style brewed with Columbia hops, a variety that was recently saved from extinction; O’Ryely IPA was so well-received in our Rotator IPA Series last year that we had to bring it back; then we have the two Brothers’ Reserve Russian Imperial Stouts, Raspberry and Chocolate, which are rich and complex takes on the style.”

Widmer Brothers has also updated its packaging with these new beers to distinguish the seasonal offerings from other beers in the lineup, and to clearly call out the different beers released throughout the year as part of the brewery’s Rotator IPA Series.
