Kegs & Legs Cider of the Week: Portland Cider Company’s new Pineapple Rose is perfect for warm weather!

I love beer and cider. After now having visited over 490 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.

We have reviewed a variety of Portland Cider Company ciders over the past few years, but today is probably the perfect day to be featuring the new Pineapple Rose release. While it can obviously be drank in any weather, blue skies and warm temperatures really make this cider shine through.

It is pretty light and not overpoweringly sweet – a nice smooth balance with pineapple and blueberries that taste delicious out of a can. However, it can also be the base for a more trumped up cocktail. I have splashed a little bit of coconut vodka in a glass and felt I was in cider heaven (or at least on the beach in Maui of something). There really are some fantastic opportunities for summer cocktail parties with this cider!

These are available in 12 oz. 6-packs – a perfect option to take to the beach, to the mountains, or even just to your backyard when doing yardwork. They are now available, but only running through August, so make sure you stock up.
