Nat's Hard Cider Kickstarts; the City v. Outdoor Patios

New, 1 comment

NORTHEAST—Earlier this year, the formerly wholesale-only Reverend Nat's Hard Cider made things official, signing paperwork for a new cidery and tasting room on NE 2nd Avenue, and now, owner Nat West is turning to Kickstarter to crowd-source additional funds. According to the site, West is raising funds "to build out a public taproom in our new cidery. This campaign isn't about raising money to start a business — we already have a successful and growing business... The campaign is about wanting to create a place where fans and friends can come enjoy a pint or a taster tray while checking out the process and equipment." More information here. [EaterWire]

EVERYWHERE—WWeek brings an update about the city's ongoing fight against the OLCC, this time regarding curfew laws for outdoor patios: "The OLCC rules say outdoor seating must close at 11p.m. on weeknights and 1a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. The city wants patios near residences to be quiet by 10p.m. every night." [WW]

ROSE CITY—The Merc's Chris Onstad visits NE Portland's Rose City Food Park, dubbing its collection of 11 "higher-end carts" — like Ramy's Lamb Shack, PDX Six Seven One, and Moberi Smoothies — a "top-shelf cart pod." [Merc]
