CLACKAMAS, Ore. – Jan. 14, 2019 – Portland Cider Company will release its Concord Grape seasonal cider in 22-oz. bottles and draft this Thursday, Jan. 17. A blend of 100 percent Northwest apple cider and freshly-pressed Northwest Concord grapes, this royal purpled-colored cider is the crowning jewel of Portland Cider’s seasonal releases.

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 for more information.
