Jobs – Supply Chain Coordinator

Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider was started in Nat’s basement in late 2011. We made 65 barrels in 2012, 650 barrels in 2013 and 2800 barrels in 2014. Now we are making close to 700 barrels per month.

In the words of one local newspaper: “Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider is out to destroy everything you know about cider.”
