Who We Are:

Woodbox Cider was started by the Thierfelder brothers and their mother, Mama Gibson. We’re a family owned and operated boutique cidery. We source all our apples locally, from our home state of Oregon and production happens in Portland’s very own Northeast quadrant. We’re pretty stoked to present you with several, signature cider blends that are becoming famous for their unapologetically bone dry flavor profiles.

Our Story:

Woodbox cider broke figurative ground back in January 2015 but the Theirfelder Bros. had been dreaming of a cidery well before they officially opened their doors. Mike began as a hobbyist making small batches of beer from home for recreational enjoyment. That’s when Mike discovered that gluten was causing adverse reactions to his health and refusing to give up the joys of fermenting, he set his sights on cider. Much to his delight, he and his beer-loving friends were quick to laud the new fruits of his labor.

One fateful evening in 2014 as the family wrapped up Thanksgiving dinner, Mike and his brother Nathan struck up a conversation about getting into the cider business and soon after hatched the plan. Less than a year-and-half later, Mom had come on board, and the family found themselves slinging cider throughout the far corners of the city and beyond.

The Theirfelder’s dream is to one day have an orchard of their own with a bonafide tasting room up in the Hood River valley, where they currently source some their apples. For now though, they are content to be spreading the dry-cider gospel whenever and wherever they can.

Mike Thierfelder is the heart and hands of the operation. You can find him harvesting, pressing, fermenting, or bottling just about any day of the week. Sherri, as proud as can be, can charm just about anybody into wetting their whistle with one of her sons’ distinctive ciders.

Editor's Pick from Sip Northwest!
There are drinks for drinking, and there are drinks for thinking. Sometimes, added deliberation in production deserves extra attention in consumption. Here is a set of thought-provoking sippers for your next philosophical session.

Woodbox Cider Co. - Pippin Dry
The Newtown Pippin apple first made its debut in New York and later in Virginia as the Albemarle Pippin, a favorite of President Thomas Jefferson that was planted throughout his celebrated Monticello Orchard. The pomme fruit’s title is shortened to simply Pippin in this single-varietal cider from the Portland-based producer. An artisinal operation run by two brothers and their mother, the apples come exclusively from Oregon for this handcrafted cider that will give white wine a run for its money. Pippin drinks with spritz and vivacity, plus green apple, Bosc pear, and melon, finishing with a lick farmhouse funk thanks to its partially wild ferment.
