Local Ciders for Local People

Is this the largest range of East Midlands Ciders and Perries ever assembled in one place? Probably, but even seven producers is less than half  the total now producing locally. These are the bottles I'll be taking to a talk and tasting session for Rutland CAMRA at the Plough, Greetham this week. More details of these and other East Mids producers can be found in a new leaflet, available to download here from the Nottingham CAMRA website. It is hoped that an even wider range of local ciders and perries will be available at the Nottingham CAMRA Beer Festival in October.

L-R: Skidbrooke Cyder, Spalding Scrumpy, Roundhead Cider, Rockingham Forest Cider & Perry, Torkard Floppy Tabs Cider, Beeches Cider, Marron Pear Cider

I'd never realised there were so many local producers of cider. I guess it's about time I used some to cure a ham.

More than happy to donate some cider to this experiment Phil, although I have to admit, we haven't got any at the moment...

Ham for cider sounds a fair trade. We'll have to sort something out.
