Portland Cider is still alive and kicking!

Jeff and Lynda Parrish, co-owners of Portland Cider Co., have issued the following statement regarding the status of their company:
“There have been a number of craft brewery and cidery closures in the Portland area recently. While we feel for our industry friends, we want to go on record stating that Portland Cider Company is very much still in business, including our two taprooms in the Portland areas. Stories that have referenced the closure of “Portland Cider Companies”––meaning cider companies in the Portland area––have led to understandable confusion for our loyal fans, patrons and and accounts. Rest assured, six years after opening, Portland Cider Company is stronger than ever and grateful to be a part of Portland’s cider loving community. Thank you!”

Please help us by setting aside 7-10 minutes to take this anonymous survey. Anyone who provides contact information will be sent a recap of our results.
