Hump Day Happy Hour: Seasonal Pumpkin Spice Cider from Portland Cider Company

I love beer. After now having visited over 440 different breweries, it’s fair to say I have sampled a lot of beer (follow me on Untappd). From post-race pints and run club meeting locations, to beer miles and relays, running and the kegged nectar seem to go hand-in-hand in Oregon. Our Kegs and Legs feature is where beer drinking runners like me can go to find some new favorite beverages.

We have reviewed a handful of Portland Cider Company, and their seasonals are always fantastic. This year, their Concord Grape in the spring and their Pineapple in the summer were exceptional. Now with fall upon us, they are in the midst of their current seasonal – Pumpkin Spice. Because, I mean, it’s the season of Pumpkin Spice right?

I’m not the biggest fan of this flavor in general. I don’t dislike it by any means, but it seems like it is often done in coffees and foods just because as opposed to it actually being done well. This cider definitely has the spice down. Their cinnamon, clove, allspice, ginger, and nutmeg spices pair exceptionally well with their four types of apples used – Gala, Honeycrisp, Fuji, and Golden Delicious. To be honest, I think that this flavor melds better with apples than most other foods and drinks out there. In the end, its a fantastic semi-sweet cider that really hits the spot.

These are only available in kegs and 22 ounce bottles from SEPTEMBER through NOVEMBER, so don’t miss out.
