Nat's taproom runs 12 taps with only his own product, which is wide-ranging enough you'd never know it all came from the same place, from hopped apricot to ginger tonic to apples-only Revival cider to a crazily multihopped collaboration with Barley Brown's, Envy, that is our Cider of the Year. Of all the ciders in town or maybe even the country, Reverend Nat's are by far the most experimental, with a beefheart cider in his past and rumors he's fiddling with…sardines. Plenty of ciders that show up in the taproom never leave the building and may never recur, including, recently, a recipe with cold-brew coffee and orange peel, one with Basque yeast, and one using 14 different kinds of sugars. Alongside Upright's excellent nearby basement taproom, it's the only place you should ever consider pre-gaming before a Blazers game or Cher concert, especially since it bumps uglies with a Bunk location in the same building.
