Even though we cannot have our usual events, including CAMRA’s National Cider and Perry Pub of the Year competition, there is still plenty to do to celebrate cider and perry in October.
CAMRA’s Learn & Discover project has several features which will be of interest. These include two guides to cider terminology by James Finch:
James has also prepared a video guide to tasting cider which you can find here.
CAMRA volunteer and pommelier Cath Potter has contributed a salute to women in cider here.
Gabe Cook has contributed a number of articles on the making of cider. The first one, on fruit and orchards, is available here.
Gabe is currently working on a book for CAMRA called Modern British Cider. This is due to be released next year and details will be provided in due course.
