CLACKAMAS, Ore. – Portland Cider Co. is taking its award-winning Northwest ciders to California. The cider house has signed on with three distributors in Northern California to provide the region with a range of Portland Cider Co.'s products. The distributors include:
Morris Distributing in Sonoma, Marin, Mendocino, Lake, Napa and San Francisco counties
Saccani Distributing Co. in counties ranging as far north as Siskiyou County and as far south as Solano County
Bay Area Distributing in East and West Contra Costa, Alameda, and Marin counties
Portland Cider Co.’s year-round favorites, including Apple, Sangria, Hop' Rageous, and its new imperial cider, The Perfect 10, will be available in cans, bottles and on draft. Seasonal favorites like Concord Grape, Pineapple, Pumpkin Spice, and Cranberry will be available in draft kegs.
"We are thrilled to be bringing our cider to the Northern California area with the support of these fine distributors," said Lynda Parrish, owner of Portland Cider Co. "We've wanted to enter the California market for a while, but held off until we found partnerships that made sense. There are a lot of Portland Cider House visitors from the San Francisco area that are going to be thrilled to be able to find us in their local stores."
Portland Cider Co. is celebrating with a series of small launch events in Northern California the week of Nov. 5, culminating with its participation in the San Francisco Fall Cider Fest on Nov. 11.
