    Nat’s has been doing a great job of standing out in an increasingly-crowded cider market. Providence served hot was a welcome treat for the Holiday Ale Fest! It would be incredible to see how well it holds up paired with food.

      Looks like a blast!! This would be a great date!

    A friend of mine doesn’t seem to be a fan of beer but swears by only cider. Reverend Nat’s is like a godsend to him (so yummy! much wow!) & I’d definitely love to take him for a foodie night out (and let’s face it, I wouldn’t mind getting in on that shrimp hominy either ;)

  40. anne December 11, 2014 at 8:02 pm #

    This is the night after our 11th year anniversary. We could never afford to do something like this on our own. (Last year we ordered pizza–from Pizzacatto, which was fancy). This would be an amazing way to expand our palate and really enjoy some finer things while in each other’s company for a night.

  41. Patricia December 11, 2014 at 8:03 pm #

    Date night! After 16 years of marriage, date night keeps it rocking!

  42. Jamie December 11, 2014 at 8:34 pm #

    Everything about this night sounds absolutely divine and utterly delicious. Not to mention that I can pick up my favorite cider of the night on the scene!

  43. Anthony December 11, 2014 at 8:46 pm #

    I’ve only tried one of Rev. Nat’s ciders so far because they’re a bit on the expensive side and I don’t like to spend too much $ on something I might not end up liking, so this would be awesome to get to try some of them to know which ones to buy in the future. (Also, the food sounds pretty incredible!)

  44. Teresa December 11, 2014 at 8:47 pm #

    This is something I would truly enjoy. Love Rev Nats

  45. Chris December 11, 2014 at 9:16 pm #

    I have fallen in love with cider, and this would be a great date night.

  46. April December 11, 2014 at 9:22 pm #

    The menu looks great and I love cider.

  47. Stacy December 11, 2014 at 9:34 pm #

    I’d like to attend because I’m broke, I want to eat good food and I love cider!

  48. ruth parvin December 11, 2014 at 9:36 pm #

    Oh my, I have been wanting to taste gorgonzola cheese cake–or other kind of savory cheesecake ever since I read about them. I have about 10 recipes clipped but still have not had the courage to make one. This whole dinner sounds fabulous and I would really like to learn more about ciders.

  49. Melissa Kaylene December 11, 2014 at 11:33 pm #

    I went to one of the Whole Foods dinners a few months ago and enjoyed it very much! I’d love to have the opportunity to attend another one and blog about the experience! :)

  50. Donna December 12, 2014 at 12:31 am #

    Would love to have someone cook dinner for me! It sounds heavenly!!

  51. Edie December 12, 2014 at 5:51 am #

    I am live in St. Louis and am visiting my son for an early Christmas…He works for Rogue Brewing…what a WONDERFUL surprise this would be for him (and us) before I head back to the boring MidWest…. thanks for the consideration!!!! Merry christmas!!!!!

  52. John December 12, 2014 at 7:25 am #

    Looks like an awesome menu + Nat’s Cider…would love to take my wife.

  53. R. Thom December 12, 2014 at 10:49 am #

    Nat’s a cool dude and his cider rocks. I’m totally into the idea of a cider inspired dinner. Count us in.

  54. danuta December 12, 2014 at 11:39 am #

    would love to try it.

  55. Tonya December 12, 2014 at 4:49 pm #

  62. Noah December 14, 2014 at 7:18 pm #

    I’ve loved cider for years even when made fun of it. When I tried Nat Reverend’s apricot brew I had an ‘out of body’ experience. I’d be honored to be chosen for a night with Nat himself. Thank you!

  63. Mimi December 14, 2014 at 8:57 pm #

    Um, YUM! It will be my first night in three weeks seeing my girlfriend — what a better reunion than this?

  64. Kathie December 14, 2014 at 9:19 pm #
