Reverend Nat’s Benefaction Tap

I’m excited to announce that Reverend Nat’s has launched a new nonprofit donation partnership program, the Benefaction Tap. I believe in a strong community and supporting organizations doing good work to improve our city and the world for all. When you order a full pour of the cider signified by the special tap handle, one dollar of your purchase goes to the month’s nonprofit partner. Every month a different nonprofit organization will receive a donation of $1 for every 12-oz pour from the special tap handle, all month long. Additionally, I am making the Taproom available to that month’s benefaction partner for a fundraising event. Invite your staff, invite the public, raise more money for your organization! For information on the program, contact
