Kegs & Legs Cider of the Week: Portland Cider Company’s seasonal Cranberry

I love beer and cider. After now having visited over 460 different breweries and cideries, it’s fair to say I have sampled a lot (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 and cider drinking runners like me can go to find some new favorite beverages.

For the months of November through the dark winter months, I’m not sure that there isn’t a better and more fitting flavor than cranberry. From the cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving to cranberry decorations on our tree at Christmas, it is something that is always forefront in my mind. We reviewed some of Portland Cider Company’s year-round beverages last time, but there winter seasonal – Cranberry – is only around for a few months and is FLYING off the shelves!

I personally love cranberries in general, as I find them a perfect mix of tart and sweet. PCC’s Cranberry Cider is no different. It pours a nice reddish hue and finishes crisp with no overpowering sweetness. It pairs up 5 different kinds of apples with cranberries (duh) and orange zest – making it perfect for a festive pairing. Even if ciders aren’t your thing, don’t sleep on pairing it with some spirits via a few of PCC’s mixed drink recipes:

These are only available in kegs and 22 ounce bottles from NOVEMBER through JANUARY, so don’t miss out. Head to one of PCC’s locations and pick one up. Last time I was in there, I was told they were already starting to run low, so don’t miss out! These make great stocking stuffers as well!
