Leicester CAMRA Cider Bar 2016

As the hungry snail-bearing Thrush awakens mighty Smaug in his mountain kingdom, so too does Susan Kite rouse this sleepy blog from slumber with the gentle tap-tap-tapping of the 2016 Leicester CAMRA Cider & Perry list.

Real cider-drinking Elves and Dwarves everywhere may rejoice, for once again the wizard of Middleton can (as if by magic) break the joyous news a full month ahead of Durin's Day.....

Enough of this Hobitty nonsense, here's the list, subject as ever to minor change. Rumours that the cider bar has been renamed the Prancing Pony this year are of course entirely unfounded, though not impossible:
