Leicester Beer Festival - Cider Bar List

The hard working team behind the Leicester CAMRA Beer Festival have once again pulled out all the stops to get the cider bar list out well in advance of the opening day. Bar manager Susan Shirley (above) entrusted this year's cider and perry order to Neville Middleton of Shardlow Brewery, who seems to have come up with an excellent choice. I'm particularly looking forward to trying the single variety Tremlett's and Dabinett ciders, and the Old Monty cider which I've heard very good things about. Burrow Hill is of course one of my favourites, and anything Tom Oliver sends should be of the highest quality. I just hope a few of these are left by the time I get there on Saturday.
