of Draft Hard Cider

Cider Bite is the first of its kind Hard Cider Taphouse in Oregon, featuring 32 ciders on tap. Customers can choose to enjoy their ciders in either half-pints (8oz), pints (16oz), flights (either four or six 5oz tasters), or growler (64oz) or growlette (32oz) fills. Cider Bite also offers a modest and delicious apple-focused food menu. For those non-cider drinkers that may be joining you, Cider Bite has a small selection of beer, wine, champagne, and non-alcoholic cider and soda options.

Welcome to Cider Bite

Portland’s premier Hard Cider Taphouse.

It started with a conversation, while each drinking a pint of the only cider on tap at a local Portland taphouse, Jeff Hanneson and Jeff Tandy saw something missing in Portland, and especially in their home neighborhood, the Pearl District. Together, they envisioned a place where patrons could enjoy a large number and wide variety of draft hard cider.

At first it seemed as though it was only a wish, but that quickly turned into a fun project for the couple as they came up with the name of the business, and they built a business plan and worked on many details of the concept. The idea really took shape when the perfect location was found – a building in Downtown Portland’s Pearl District, located in the heart of the breweries blocks. They remodeled the location to combine wood, modern, rustic, and clean decor, to provide a welcoming look and a comfortable feel. The intimate setting allows for the highest quality in customer service and the cultivation of relationships between the “Cider Crew,” as the staff is rightfully referred as, and Cider Bite’s patrons, and members of the community.

There is a common misconception about hard cider being a very sweet beverage, like an alcoholic apple juice. Cider Bite not only offers a large number and wide range of delicious cider options, but a true educational and enlightening experience. The ciders range from Sweet to Dry, and everything in-between, including hopped, spicy, seasonal, fruit, and berry. The majority of Cider Bite’s ciders are made by cideries in the Pacific Northwest, and all of its ciders are gluten-free.

We appreciate you for stopping-by our home on the web, and we hope that we’ll have the chance to meet you in person. Thank you!

  • This was such a fun experience! I love cider and it was great to try so many (we actually tried all of them in a 2 day span). If you love cider, you must go! We were visiting from SC and we're so glad we found Cider Bite <3

    Belinda S. – Myrtle Beach, SC
  • Such a great spot! If you are just getting into the cider scene like I am, start your journey here. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable and super-helpful if you tell them what kinds of flavors you like & the selection includes a great mix of local and national cideries. Real neighborhood ambiance and totally unpretentious -- lacking in so many other spots in the Pearl.

    David M. – Portland, OR
  • This is such a wonderful bar! There is a really great selection of cider, more than reasonable prices, wonderful atmosphere, and friendly owners. They even have some card and board games available to play while you have a pint!

    Melanie W. – New York, NY
  • There are so many creative and delicious cider options! I couldn't decide so I had a flight. Definitely a great place. I will be returning!

    Danielle M. – Portland, OR
