Oregon City, OR – The Portland Cider Company today announced it is moving its cider production facility to a new, larger location in Clackamas in order to meet the growing demand for its cider products.
The company is investing approximately $1 million to increase the size of its operation ten fold, according to Jeff Parrish, Portland Cider Company owner and master ciderist. “Our sales have more than doubled each year since we started bottling our cider in 2013,” Parrish said. “We will be able to produce over 1.5 million gallons of cider annually in this new location, which is a significant step in our company’s growth.”
The 20,000 square foot facility, located in Clackamas adjacent to Interstate 205, will open in April and replaces the company’s present operation in Oregon City. It will include a tap room where customers can enjoy an assortment of Portland Cider Company ciders on tap including their flagship flavors, Kinda Dry, Sorta Sweet, Pearfect Perry and Hop’rageous. In addition to these popular flavors, the company also offers seasonal varieties. Currently those include Mojito, Maui Cruiser and Passion Fruit. The tap room will be open from noon until 8 pm Sunday through Thursday and noon until 10 pm Friday and Saturday.
The Portland Cider Company has another location, the Portland Cider House, in Portland’s Hawthorne District, where they offer cider on tap to the public. Their bottled and canned ciders are available in Oregon, Washington, Colorado and California.
Yes, you read right! Now through the end of the year our cider wagon will be stationed at Clackamas Town Center. We will be sampling our four mainstay ciders as well as selling all of our branded merchandise and our new variety packs.
Stop in and say hi and knock some of your holiday shopping off early.

The Portland Cider House is open to patrons of all ages and while it features a limited food menu, patrons are encouraged to bring in food from any one of the many excellent restaurants in the area.
The Portland Cider House is a follow on to the company’s tasting room at their production facility in Oregon City. “We have enjoyed a great deal of interest in our ciders at our Oregon City tasting room,” says Owner and Master Cider Maker Jeff Parrish. “It has been our desire from day one to open a unique public taproom devoted to promoting not just our ciders, but all the excellent craft ciders being produced in the northwest. We are very excited about the results of our hard work.”
The Portland Cider House feels like a step into a rustic, farmhouse cidery. The décor features a bar and tables made from reclaimed wood out of a century old mill with cedar planking lining the walls. Original works from local artists are featured along with many cider related novelties that lend to a fun light hearted atmosphere.
The Portland Cider House will be open daily at 11:00am.
