Release Party for 1763 Revolutionary West Country Cider

Posted by Abram Goldman-Armstrong (Creator)

You've seen the videos of the cider apples being pressed, now it's time to have a taste of the 2013 vintage of 1763 Revolutionary West Country Cider. Saturday from 4-8pm we're celebrating the release of the fruits of our labor at Bushwhacker Cider 1212-D SE Powell Blvd in Portland. In 1763 when Prime Minsiter John Bute imposed a tax on cider, the people of the West Country rose up to protest it. This cider is a tribute to that tradition of resistance.
Picked and pressed from only the finest Yamhill County grown bittersweet and bittersharp cider apples, 1763 is replete with tannins and rich flavors. A hazy full amber color it pairs exceptionally with bold cheeses. We've got a special cheese plate available for Saturday, with Keen's cheddar from Somerset, Stilton, and Mt Zion goat's cheese from Eugene. The Bridgetown Morris Men will be performing at 5pm, and we have special Riot Like 'tis 1763 tshirts available.

Thanks for all of your support, we'd love to share our favorite cider with you.
