Cidermaker Nat West is opening a taproom and moving production of his twelve-year-old cidery Reverend Nat’s to the Richmond neighborhood. The taproom is set to open next Friday, March 24 in the former Logsdon’s Farmhouse Ales location next to the Farmhouse Carts food cart pod, which houses nine food carts and has indoor and outdoor seating.
The taproom will pour a dozen of its own ciders, including popular flavors available year-round like Revival Hard Apple and Sacrilege Sour Cherry, plus seasonal ciders and a new line of nonalcoholic ciders, Jeff Alworth of Beervana blog reports. Reverend Nat’s original taproom on Northeast 2nd Avenue closed in 2020, and the cidery moved its production facility into a warehouse about a mile west. Although the new cider taproom opens to the public next week, the cidery will gradually renovate the space and move its equipment over; West plans to throw a grand opening party in July. Reverend Nat’s Cidery & Taproom will be open Wednesdays through Sundays, and set up as a standing room-only bar on Fridays, at 2425 SE 35th Place.
