Allagash Tap Takeover

Most of you know that at Portal we try to serve the best local (Californian) beers we can get our hands on. We make one exception to this rule and always try to have something from Allagash on tap. They are sourced out of Maine, and in our opinion have some on the best beers around! You can come in and almost always find either the Curieux or the White on. Allagash will be taking over our taps and theses are their offerings:

Golden Gate Cider Tap Takeover

Golden State Cider our favorite cider company will be featuring three of their fabulous ciders. This company encompasses everything we believe in. They start by pressing 100% West Coast apples, there is no added water. No added sugar. No concentrates. No gluten.


Mighty Dry:

This light but complex cider is made from fresh pressed apples and champagne yeast, it has a semi-dry, tart yet balanced character with complex fruity and gentle earthy funk flavors. 6.9%

Mighty Hops:

The pungent dank aromas from the hops accent the familiar, tart fruit notes characteristic of all Golden State Ciders, resulting in a dynamic tasting experience.  Subtle notes of pine, clove, and citrus tie it all together to create a refreshing, yet complex cider great for hop heads and cider nerds alike. 6.9%

Black Arkansas Pinot Barrel-Aged Farm Cider:

Hand Pressed, late harvest Black Arkansas Varietal apples, macerated and fermented with hand picked rich 2nd harvest pinot noir grapes from our farm in Sebastopol, wildly fermented with the natural yeast on the skin of the apples and grapes, aged in oak Pinot Noir Barrels for a delicate stone fruit and woody leather, deep pinot tones, strong sour lemon and mango character, funky wild and earthy, hay/straw, with a sharp tart floral finish 10.5%
