and infused with local lemon balm and chamomile. A delicate and complex

Each fall, north Olympic Peninsula neighbors are invited to bring their
bruised, bitter or bizarre backyard apples and Finnriver lovingly ferments
this charismatic collection of fruit. The result is a semi-sweet,
frontier-style cider with rustic origins and a juicy apple character. A
portion of every bottle sale is allocated to local food banks. 6.5% abv

THURSDAY, MAY 22ND 6PM, Baird & Dewar Farmhouse Cider’s, Zeb Dewar, will be in-house pouring samples and answering your cider questions.  We will also be tapping a special keg! 

Baird & Dewar Farmhouse Cider was started slowly and quietly as an extension of Zeb Dewar’s home cidermaking, with the intention of bringing traditional small-batch vintage English-style farmhouse cider to the northwest.

Zeb has made cider for over 15 years, and has worked for over 8 years as a cellar hand, assistant winemaker, and harvest manager at premium Willamette Valley And Columbia Gorge wineries. He has been making cider from apples grown at Baird Family Orchard for more than six years.

Trevor Baird is a highly regarded second generation farmer and fruit grower, whose peaches, cherries, and apples are used by many of Portland’s finest restaurants and breweries.

It is their mission to grow and produce interesting, honest, subtle, traditional, and unique vintage ciders, with respect for the craft, the planet, and the people they work with, and to have fun doing it!
