Cider Riot 6th Birthday Party April 25th 5pm-8pm
Six years ago Cider Riot! began in earnest as Abram Goldman-Armstrong set about converting his North Tabor neighborhood garage into a fully licensed production cidery. To celebrate we’ll be tapping some very special casks of cider, including 2018 Kingston Black single varietal, and Pyder, a Welsh style perry-cider blend. We’ll also be offering limited edition patches for just $3 (normally $5). We’ll also be pouring flights of 1763 from 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and a sneak preview of 2018, taste how proper cider made from tannic bittersweet cider apples can evolve over time. Stick around afterwards or stop in any Thursday 8-close for the Biddy McGraw’s traditional Irish session. Join fiddle, bodhran, whistle, banjo, uileann pipe players and more for the ceol agus craic.
Eat Here Now
Starting Easter Sunday, we’ll be serving small plates including house-made pickles, made with vinegar made from cider apples, cheese and cider pairing flights, ploughman’s platters, samosas, and locally made spinach and mushroom pies. The menu is inspired by English pub food, and we’ve all the proper condiments, from brown sauce to Coleman’s mustard.
“On my trips to the West Country I’ve always enjoyed how well the dry tannic ciders go with the simple fare of country pubs,” says cidermaker and founder Abram Goldman-Armstrong. “We’ve picked dishes that complement our ciders, and thrown in a few Cascadian pub favorites, such as hummus and veg as well. I’ve very excited to be able to offer cheese and cider flights, where you can get 4 ciders paired 4 cheeses.”
You’ll still be able to get amazing Mexican food from No Q No Taqueria in our patio and bring in your own food. Offering our own menu also means minors will be welcome Sundays when No Q No is shut.
