From source to pint
An outreach initiative of Oregon Wild, the Oregon Brewshed® Alliance is a coalition of Oregon brewers, brewing community partners, and conservationists who understand the value of clean water and protected forest watersheds. Beer is over 90% water after all, and that water is a product of the land that it flows through.
Great beer doesn’t start at the tap – great beer begins with clean water.

Portland Cider Company is coordinating the inaugural PDX Community Apple Drive, calling upon the Portland community for backyard apples to hand-press into a community cider to support Oregon Wild and the Oregon Brewshed® Alliance initiative. The apple drive is collecting bushels of unwanted fruit August 1 thru the end of October.
This full-scale community effort is about bringing people together to create handmade craft cider, using the apples from our own backyards here in the Portland Metro area. Bringing together cider, community, tradition and charity in Portland Cider Company’s first ever Community Cider release, “Oregon Wild.”
Why “Oregon Wild?” Because 100% of the net proceeds of the cider created & sold as part of the PDX Community Apple Drive will be donated to Oregon Wild, the conservation non-profit working to protect and restore Oregon’s wildlands, wildlife, and waters as an enduring legacy for all Oregonians. Portland Cider Company recently joined as the first cidery in the coalition of brewers that makes up the Oregon Brewshed Alliance.
To support the efforts of Oregon Wild & Oregon Brewshed Alliance, Portland Cider Company is organizing this inaugural PDX Community Apple Drive, modeling a successful drive held in the Eugene area the last couple of years. Portland Cider Company invites you to bring your fallen and unwanted fruit in exchange for Portland Cider trade. And when the time comes, you also get to help with the pressing of the apples you brought in.
MINIMUM DONATION OF 1 BUSHEL
OF APPLES* (40 LBS.)
- *40lbs or more of usable apples.
- Payment in trade vouchers redeemable at either of our taprooms. While supplies last.
