Cider Riot! Collaborates with Portland Timbers Coach Caleb Porter

PORTLAND, Ore. — Just in time for the playoffs, Cider Riot! releases Porter’s Perfection, a bourbon-barrel aged single varietal cider. The English bittersharp Porter’s Perfection apple has been used for over a century to make world champion ciders. In the fall of 2016 we had an abundant crop of Porter’s Perfection apples and teamed up with Coach Caleb Porter to make a cider that was worthy of competing at the highest level.

After fermentation, the cider aged for a year, going through malolactic refermentation, and finished up in Woodford Reserve Old Forester Bourbon Barrels. Caleb Porter came by the cidery to help select the final blend on October 20th. We’re confident this cider has the juice to go all the way to the finals. Subtle bourbon and barrel notes complement the tart flavor of this classic bittersharp cider. It is limited to a run of only 34 cases.

Cider Riot! releases Porter’s Perfection Monday, October 30, at 5.30 pm at its Pub and Production Facility, 807 NE Couch St, Portland, OR 97232. Porter’s Perfection will be on draft and available in bottles to go, and the Timbers match will be on in HD. RCTID!

Release party Monday, October 30, 2017, 5.30 pm Cider Riot! Pub and Production Facility, 807 NE Couch St., Portland, OR 97232.

Available locally on draft and in 500ml bottles from Maletis Beverage.
