Portland Cider Company (Clackamas, Oregon) has announced that it will officially launch its new Seasonal lineup with the release of RazzBerry in early March 2020.
Crafted to be the “perfect definition of a cider full of sunshine,” RazzBerry is a Hard Cider that features “loads of bright raspberries combined with Northwest-grown apples, a touch of lemon zest, and juicy Hood River Valley pears.” Coming in at 5.8% ABV, RazzBerry is “easy-drinking, thirst-quenching and refreshingly tart.”
“RazzBerry is the perfect cider for the sunshine that’s right around the corner here in the Pacific Northwest; or at least it will give you all the summertime feels if the spring rain never lets up!,” said Helen Lewis, marketing director for Portland Cider Co. “Last summer’s seasonal Pineapple Rosé was such a hit we made it year-round. RazzBerry is the perfect replacement this year.”
RazzBerry will make its debut at Portland Cider Co.’s seventh anniversary party on March 7 at the company’s Clackamas Taproom and Cidery and distribution is scheduled to begin shortly after that date. You can expect to find this new Seasonal offering available in 19.2 oz. “proper pint” cans, 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at cider-friendly establishments located within Portland Cider Company’s distribution footprint in Oregon, Washington, Northern Idaho, and Northern California. Prost!
