Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider Announces Permanent Closure

September 6, 2023 by No Comments

Following their recent celebration of the 12th anniversary and a mere 5 months into their fresh establishment, Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider is making the decision to close its doors. The cidery, based in Portland, Oregon, has earned widespread recognition as one of the foremost cider producers in the city and the state. Its enduring legacy primarily revolves around its pioneering exploration of novel flavors and groundbreaking innovations in the cider universe.

This was announced on their website which read: “After 12 great years, it’s time to move on. September 2023 will be our last month in business. Please join me in the Taproom any time now until Sep 24 but especially on Saturday Sep 23 as we celebrate all the amazing ciders and great people who have contributed to our incredible successes.” This was also mirrored on their official Instagram page which further confirmed the news.

The journey commenced when founder Nat West delved into cider production at home back in 2004, culminating in the establishment of Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider in September 2011. The initial batches were crafted in his basement before they eventually relocated to Portland’s Hollywood neighborhood, where they inaugurated a taproom in 2013.

Subsequently, in 2020, they undertook a long-anticipated move to a warehouse facility near N. Interstate, leading to the closure of their long-standing tasting room. This closure, however, kindled heightened anticipation among fans upon the announcement of their recent venture on SE Division. With this in mind, it looks like many Portland residents will be raising one last glass in two weeks time.
