Portland, Oregon’s string of closings continued as Cider Riot, Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery, and Coalition Brewing recently announced plans to close in the city.

Cider Riot will shut its doors on Sunday, November 10th, according to a Facebook post. The 6-year-old cider company’s attempts to secure a buyer were unsuccessful.

Meanwhile, 9-year-old Coalition Brewing’s founders announced its closure in an October 31st Facebook post, as its owners pursue “new adventures.”

Craftworks Holdings closed its Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery location in Portland on October 27th after 25 years, according to a report in Willamette Week. Craftworks operates 25 Rock Bottom brewpubs in California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.

In the past year, several long-time craft breweries have either shuttered (Lompoc, Bridgeport Brewing, Burnside) or closed taprooms (Widmer Brothers, Portland Brewing, Alameda) in Portland. Lagunitas also closed its 3-year-old Portland Community Room, a taproom with event space for non-profits to host fundraisers free of charge.
