Hi, im planning a trip to Portugal in January. I can find craft beer easily but id like to try some cider, whether thats Spanish or Portugese. Does anyone know of any producers in Portugal, or bars / shops that might sell it? Ill be flying into Lisbon then renting a car to drive to Porto for a few days
is not easy to find good cider in Portugal. Anyways, you can find portuguese cider in the supermarkets:
Obviously this could be not good ciders…Musa launched a craft cider a couple of months ago, named Peste & Sidra and you can find it at «Armazem da cerveja (Porto)» and i suppose that in the «Musa Fábrica (Lisboa)»
I think you could find a couple of ciders from Northern Spain at «Restaurante Imanol» at «El corte Inglés: Club gourmet» in Lisboa. And the last time I was in «Catraio (Porto)» they had bottles of galician cider «Lagar de Ribela».
I hope it helps!
If you need more information about Porto beer scene do not hesitate to contact me. Cheers!
Awesome thanks mate, thats a good start. I did read about a new-ish producer based on the coast somewhere too.
Yes, nearer the time i might get your thoughts in places in Porto. It doesnt look like a country too many people on RB visit so im hoping to update some of the place reviews. Many thanks!
Madeira has many cider producers but I dont know if you can find the Madeira Ciders in Mainland Portugal. I could ask if you want.
Try contacting @andrepintado. He´s a portuguese rateberian interested in cider who may help you.
