Hillsboro’s Primrose & Tumbleweeds prides itself on offering the world’s largest selection of Oregon wines. Thankfully, there’s also a side room with an almost as strong selection of beer and cider. The bar features 10 taps, with three going to cider. Local ciders dominate the shelves of the side room, but there are a few offerings from England, France and Spain. If you get lucky, you just might find a rarity like the Duke from Carlton Cyderworks—last bottled in 2012—we spotted amid the bottles and cans of the cider fridge. The trek to Hillsboro may seem daunting for townies, but this bottle shop, just a few blocks away from the final Blue Line stop, will help you feel right at home with charcuterie from Olympic Provisions and some fantastic cider. Corkage is on the house.
