Pressing Matters, the first Proper Cider and Real Ale Festival in North America returns to Cider Riot!® Saturday, November 17th. Showcasing two-dozen ciders made from traditional bittersweet and bittersharp cider apples and five cask-conditioned ales, Pressing Matters tips its cap to the fermentation traditions of England and France and celebrates the innovation of American cidermakers and brewers.
We’ll be featuring five vintages of 1763 Revolutionary West Country Cider, as well as Kingston Black and Porters Perfection Single Varietals, and two vintages of White Oak Perry, plus a wide selection of excellent ciders from across the region. We’ll also be pouring pins of real ales from well respected local breweries.

It’s picking time!
We’ve started picking this year’s bittersweets and bittersharps and a bumper crop of Perry Pears out at White Oak Cider in Yamhill County and 2018 is shaping up to be a great vintage.
We could use a few hands for picking and pressing later this month. Email Abram firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
The 2017 vintage of 1763 is here!
Starting today you’ll be able to pick up the 2017 vintage of 1763 in bottles at the pub. It’s packed with tannic ciderfruit, with notes of leather, red currant, harvest apple and soft spiciness. Recommended pairings include stilton, or local blue such as Cascadia Creamery’s Glacier Blue, or Rogue’s Caveman Blue. Pick up a bottle today!
