PORTLAND CYCLE CIDER CENTURY Link 21+
Portland Cider Company, 3638 SE Hawthorne Blvd Take Trimet
11:00am - 4:00pm
We have all heard about beer centuries ("Long on beer, short on miles"), but anyone who can't handle the gluten, or just doesn't like beer, can join in the fun of a pub crawl just for you! There are enough cider-only or cider-focused taprooms in town that we can't even cover them all, meaning this event will be repeated with new routes periodically. But come to the inaugural PCCC so that you can tell your friends and grandchildren you were there at the start.
