Situated between the twin peaks of Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams along the Columbia River, the unique soil, climate, and personalities creates an incredible laboratory for crafting cider. The Gorge cideries are rooted to the region by their connections with this land, the fruit it produces, and each other. The cider each of the over a dozen cideries creates is a unique reflection of the cidermaker's style and the produce that goes into it sourced from the over 400 orchards in the region. What better place is there to explore these connections and the incredible variety in cider?

What we do

The Gorge Cider Society works to promote locally crafted cider, explore cider with our visitors and cideries, and create a space for cider lovers to come together in the Columbia River Gorge.

Our Goal

The Gorge Cider Society works together with members and partners to support a vibrant cider industry, put the Gorge on the map as a great place to explore cider, always continue to learn and share that knowledge with others.  Our members strive to craft authentic cider of this region to share with their customers and friends.

Thank yous!

This might be a little unconventional, but we have several thank yous the Gorge Cider Society wants to make for support making this website, and many other aspects of our work together happen. Several wonderful photographers have contributed to allowing this site to tell the story of cider in the gorge with their beautiful art.  Victoria Wright, Jaime Singer, and Jesse Larvick-we can’t thank you enough!   Ian Daly did an incredible job with site design. And, last but definitely not least, our funders-Oregon Department of Agriculture through the Specialty Crop Block Grant program.
