Festivus for the Rest of Us!


One of the best things about living in Oregon is the changing of the seasons. 1859 Cider Co. is welcoming winter and the new year in style, join us!

Celebrating winter solstice can be a meaningful way to tune into the magic and beauty of the season. So, on Dec. 21st, 1859 Cider Co. is hosting a winter solstice party

Every celebration needs music, so we have invited our good friend, Seahorse, to perform from 8-10 pm. 

For something extra special for the occasion, we will have library ciders available to the public. Come try ciders that you've only heard about, or have been missing since they left the tasting room! 

A special seasonal cider cocktail, Winter Chill, will be available. This cocktail was crafted with relaxation from holiday stress in mind!

Throughout history, celebrating the solstice with acts of kindness has been a way to renew our connection with each other and the Earth, so, this event will double as a pet drive. 

We will be collecting items/donations to deliver to the Willamette Humane Society. Below is a link to their wishlist and most needed items for day to day care.

We are very excited about our seasonal cider, Dark Elf, featuring spiced pumpkin and cranberry!  The supply is very limited, only four 1/2 barrels! Swing in before this Dark Elf leaves the shelf!


Is Christmas already stressing you out?
Do you have grievances to air???
Well, grab a Dark Elf cider and air em' out for all to hear on December 23rd! 
1859 Cider Co. is hosting FESTIVUS!
No decorations.
No gifts.
No holiday music.
Just a metal pole, a soapbox and a healthy feats of strength game!
Our game will be held at 8pm for those feeling strong enough to play!
**We will still be collecting items/ donations for the Willamette Humane Society that night!

December's cider of the month is Farmer's Dry! Don't miss out on $5 glasses Tuesday- Thursday!

Tasting notes: Aromatic heirloom dry cider reminiscent of a fine Champagne. Cantaloupe and honeydew melon on the nose followed by lime-zest, jasmine, and ripe navel oranges on the palate. Hints of white pepper and clove spices drive this cider through to finish off with a clean farmhouse bite.
