Alter Ego Cider was established in 2014 in Portland, Oregon when friends and winemakers Nate Wall, Kris Wall, and Anne Hubatch were enjoying some cider with dinner and realized how in many ways, that cider was very similar to wine. With the equipment they already had, and a desire to try something new, Alter Ego Cider was born.
The three decided to put their combined two decades of wine making experience to work, and craft artisanal ciders utilizing winemaking techniques. Alter Ego focuses on producing high-quality, artisanal cider with nuance, delicacy and depth.
Alter Ego Cider strives to craft cider you can enjoy on its own, or paired with a variety of your favorite foods. Come visit us in our shared production facility and tasting room in Portland, or check out the map on the "Find AE Cider" page to locate our cider near you.
