Today marks the first day of Oregon Cider Week, June 18-28, and beergarden. (777 W. 6th Ave.) is teaming up with WildCraft Ciderworks for Snakebite Night. Don’t worry, it doesn’t involve any actual snakes — snakebites are alcoholic beverages composed of equal parts beer and cider.
According to its Facebook page, beergarden. is tapping four snakebites, all made with WildCraft Ciderworks cider, tonight (June 18) from 6 to 8 pm:
Number one is a Marzen from Agrarian Ales paired with WildCraft’s Wild Rose cider, number two is a Paulaner Heff-Weissbier blended with Licorice Fern cider, number three is Coconut Porter from Maui Brewing Co. mixed with Snake River Rye barrel-aged cider and number four is shake chocolate stout from Boulder Beer Co. paired with Black Currant cider.

Also today, The Tap and Growler (207 E. 5th Ave.) is hosting WildCraft Oregon Botanical Tap Takeover, tapping four WildCraft ciders made with Oregon botanicals, inlcuding Lilac Fermented Semi-Sweet Cider and new flagship cider Wild Rose.
