The cider and perry list has now been published on the Camra web site for this years Great British (Beer and) Cider Festival  – showcasing the selected cider and perries that will be available at the 5 day event in West London.

Recommended ones to taste

Great to see the Welsh ciders on show, representing not just West Country cider styles. I’m particularly looking forward to trying New Forest’s cider’s Kingston Black single varietal cider – a new line for them this year.

Also some new ciders from Cambridgeshire and Kent this year, cider makers over in this part of the UK use culinary apples that are more common here than true cider apples from the West country – which results in a clear, crisp and very pale cider. Some not for the faint-hearted at approx. 8% ABV!

On the site you can read the comments and reviews from other cider fans, and even create your own shortlist to print off and take to the event.

Hope to see you there!
