Ciderhouse News - Spring Bank Holiday Weekend

Another Bank Holiday weekend means another rash of Beer & Cider Festivals. We've been busy barrelling and boxing up for three events over the final weekend of May:

  • Northampton CAMRA Beer Festival (26th - 28th May) in the grounds of Delapre Abbey is always a very popular event. The cider bar gets through a huge amount of real cider and perry, Northampton folk seem to have a taste for the stuff. I'm hoping that recent CAMRA national award winner Virtual Orchard will have sent some of their Hard Core Cider for us to try, and I'm also looking forward to trying the new season Eve's Cider from Kettering. We'll be sending a batch of our Rockingham Forest Cider, and a slightly drier Blakeney Red Perry than the one currently doing the rounds.

  • We'll be using the excellent Torkard Cider Courier Service to deliver to this years Newark CAMRA Beer Festival (27th - 29th May), for which we thank Ray & Gail. I'm hoping to visit Newark for this years event, so we'll be looking out for Hucknalls finest, plus plenty of other good stuff. More of that Blakeney Red Perry will be going to Newark, along with a box of Red Kite Cider, our Yarlington Mill single varietal.

  • Legendary Leicestershire ale house the Cow & Plough, have taken delivery of a small box of Blakeney Red Perry for their annual Booze & Blues Festival (26th - 28th May). A small box is not likely to last very long, so get it while you can.
