Oregon City-born Portland Cider opens in West End District
Portland Cider Co.'s new Westside Pub in Beaverton opened Aug. 10 in the West End District.
Established in Oregon City in 2012, the cidery with English roots has two existing locations on Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard in Portland and Southeast Jannsen Road in Clackamas.
The long-awaited Beaverton pub, located near the busy intersection of Southwest Murray Boulevard and Tualatin Valley Highway, features 24 taps, with up to 10 guest beers along with its own selection of ciders.
The space at 4005 S.W. Orbit St. is a modern-style beer hall, with an open layout and communal seating options, inspired by the company's English roots.
The Beaverton location is also Portland Cider's first to be fully built out with the company's recent rebranding.
"It was important to us that everyone who walks through the doors of our Westside Pub feels like they're welcome and wanted," said Jeff Parrish, co-owner of Portland Cider Co, in a statement. "We designed this pub to be a 'third place' to our guests: not home, not work, but that place where people can come together, relax, share ideas and build community — all over a proper pint of cider, of course."
Another detail in the space is a mural of an apple orchard and an urban landscape by artist Katherine Harrington.
Parrish worked with Oregon Lumber Products to build custom tabletops from locally sourced, reclaimed lumber. Parrish also built and welded the table legs.
"Jeff and I lived in Beaverton years ago, and we're so happy that we can bring a pub to our old stomping grounds. Beaverton is a really exciting place to be right now, with so many new restaurants and breweries opening up," said co-owner Lynda Parrish in a statement. "And fostering community is a core part of our mission. We're really looking forward to meeting the neighborhood's cider fans and collaborating with more local businesses on creative new ciders, giveaways and celebrations."
