PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – Sunday is the last day you can get a drink from northeast Portland's Cider Riot.

The cidery is closing its doors because the owner, Abram Goldman-Armstrong, tells FOX 12 it isn't sustainable.

He says the facility was built to produce 2,000 barrels of cider a year. Right now, they’re making about half of that.

Goldman-Armstrong says his business isn’t the only one struggling.

He blames this industry-wide pinch partly on consumers turning to a new trend of hard seltzers.
