If artisan pizza and a glass of crisp, hard cider sound like a perfect combination, the Very Noble New Year’s celebration, a collaboration between All Souls Pizza and Noble Cider, may be the ideal way to ring in 2014. On New Year’s Eve, All Souls will feature a prix fixe menu with an optional Noble Cider pairing that offers tastings of several yet-to-be-released ciders. Midnight toasts will be done with Noble’s classic variety.
Revelers can expect to get a sneak peak at some flavors that won’t be available on tap or in bottles until mid-2014, including a hopped cider and one or two fruit-flavored varieties, as well as the winter seasonal, Figgy Pudding. “It’s made with fresh and dried figs and seasonal spices, with a nice brandylike flavor in the finish,” says Noble Cider staff member Joanna Baker.
“Noble is excited to partner on our first cider dinner with All Souls Pizza,” Baker says. “[All Souls Chef] David Bauer and his team truly believe in the local food and beverage community, and they’ve been great supporters of our product since they opened. It’s going to be a delicious evening.”
Dinner with a cider pairing is $50. Dinner-only is $35. Guests who opt for both the dinner and the cider pairing will receive a Noble Cider glass to take home as a memento. The event runs 5 p.m.-midnight and All Souls will stay open until 1 a.m. It will be closed on Jan. 1.
