Portland Cider Company (Clackamas, Oregon) has officially announced that it will begin the Small Batch Series Release of Crangerine in early November 2020.
Originally introduced in 2019 to launch Portland Cider Company’s Small Batch Series, Crangerine is a Hard Cider that “highlights tart and juicy tangerines complemented by fruity Oregon-grown cranberries.” Coming in at 5.1% ABV, Crangerine is “a playful spin on a fall classic, adding bright citrus for those who like something unexpected.”
“We love the tartness of this cider and how the citrus zest of the tangerines interacts with the fruitiness of the rich red cranberries,” said Lynda Parrish, Portland Cider Co. co-owner. “This cider is perfect for the holiday season—it works well with food pairings, especially the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner, and makes a delicious cranberry cider cocktail as well.”
Crangerine is rolling out now and will hang around only as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 19.2 oz. “proper pint” cans and on draft at Portland Cider Company’s two taprooms and at select cider-friendly establishments located in Oregon, Washington, Northern Idaho, and Northern California. Prost!
