McMenamins is one of the top five producers of hard cider in the Pac NW. During Oregon Cider Week, June 18-28, they’re celebrating with some great deals and offerings.
For just $5 a glass, McMenamins offers their Edgefield Cider in original apple and seasonal cherry at all locations in Oregon. To kick things off with panache, they’re hosting a Kennedy School Cider Dinner on Thursday, June 18, where guests can enjoy Executive Chef Chris Lawrence’s sumptuous menu paired with ciders, such as a pecan, pear & blue cheese salad with Edgefield Pomegranate Cider. See menu details below.
Kennedy School is not the only location that will be aptly filled with appleheads, Tavern & Pool recently established a cider bar upstairs, making it Northwest Portland’s only cider bar. With four rotating guest ciders on tap and two Edgefield ciders, Tavern & Pool will give guests $1 off a pint of their choice during Cider Week. To give you a glimpse, here are the guest cider taps: Finnriver Fire Barrel; Foxtail Apfelwein German Cider; Anthem Cherry Cider; and Crispin Pacific Pear Cider. Whichever McMenamins gathering place folks end up in, they’ll be able to get their Oregon Cider Week stamp for their Passport!
