Episode 15: Giving Thanks in the Swiss Farmlands | Helvetia Tavern and Cider Mill (Nov. 27, 2019)

Deep fried brilliance at the Cider Mill
On a blustery Thanksgiving eve, Nov. 27, 2019, we expressed our gratitude for our first “podiversary” and two venerable bars located on what was once Swiss farmers land and now anchored by iconic menu items.

It was a marathon exploration/recording session that began at 3 p.m. and ended past midnight, with no shortage of libations in between. Shockingly we get through the bulk of the episode relatively unscathed before the wheels come flying spectacularly off in our greatest close ever! 

Before that though, we first traveled deep into the western farmlands of Washington County, stepping out of the cold afternoon wind and into the sleepy, but warm Helvetia Tavern (08:54) for the best burger and beer a personal check can buy. Several (possibly ill-advised) pit stops later, we landed at Cider Mill (37:44), between SW Portland's Multnomah Village and Hillsdale neighborhoods, where we rediscovered our love for this lively survivor over chicken hearts and a few more cold ones. 

Enjoy the latest deep-fried History by the Glass!

Our hats and personal checks off to you Helvetia Tavern!
