Welcome to another installment of the Oregon Brewery Running Series Podcast; Inspiring Oregonians to Be Active, Have Fun, and Give Back. We host family-friendly, 5K fun runs that start and end at some of Oregon’s best breweries.
Today on the podcast we’re chatting
We’ve had the immense privilege of working with Helen for the past few years. This fall marks our fourth run with those amazing Cider Makers. You may remember learning a little bit of their story from my interview with co-founder, co-owner and head cider make Jeff Parish from 2018. Listen to that interview here!
I met with
So on this day, I mostly wanted to chat with Helen about what they’ve been up to in the past year or so since we’ve been with them.
Today’ on the podcast, you’ll get to learn a few new things about Portland Cider Co. Helen and I talk a bit about their new switch to canning and some branding that recently hapened. It’s pretty amazing and a bigger deal than you might realize.
We also talk about their community
We’re excited to announce they will be our nonprofit partner for this event! 10% from your event registration will go directly to Hunger-Free Oregon to support
Our event day, October 19, 2019, is going to be the release of a special cider with 100% of proceeds going to benefit Hunger-Free Oregon. The cider is special because it’s made almost entirely with fruit that has been gathered from backyards all over the Portland metro area. Pretty cool, right? I have a bunch sitting in a box that I need to drop off soon.
Helen and I also chat a bit about new cider releases and a special running challenge we have for this run only, so keep listening then register to join us at Portland Cider Company on October 19! Jeff, the co-owner and head Cider Maker will again be challening you! If you can beat him, he’ll treat you to a second free cider. See you then!
