Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider Signs with Columbia Distributing
Portland, OR 07/10/12 – Just a few months into its first sales, and effective immediately, Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider has signed a deal with Columbia Distributing to distribute all products in the Oregon and Washington markets.
The quickly-growing cidery began as a hobby six years ago and is located in the Reverend’s basement in the historic Woodlawn neighborhood of NE Portland. Current market offerings include the flagship Revival Dry and the popular Deliverance Ginger. The first new offering under Columbia Distributing will be the celebrated Hallelujah Hopricot, followed closely by Sacrilege Sour Cherry, Providence Traditional New England and the limited-release Revelation single-variety series.
Columbia Distributing boasts the longest history of cider distributorship in the Pacific Northwest with many well-known cider brands. The large distributor also plays well with the locals, recently adding Portland beer scene favorite Hopworks Urban Brewery to its lineup. Reverend Nat’s will produce almost 4,000 gallons this year and expects to expand significantly under partnership with Columbia Distributing. The Reverend says, “I can drink my cider. Portland can drink my cider. Now more people can drink my cider.”
