May Is Camra Cider Month!!

Did you know that the month's of May and October are chosen every year by CAMRA as the months in which to celebrate Cider and Perry?

Why May and October?

Unlike real ale production, which can happen at any time of the year, real cider and perry is generally a seasonal product and can only be made when the fruit is ripe. Production is tied to a natural cycle of the apple and perry pear trees found in orchards around the country.

The month of May was chosen because it is when the orchards come into bloom and fruit begins to set. Cider and perry production from the previous year reaches maturity in May and can start being enjoyed so it’s also a time for celebration of the fruits of cider makers labour!

October is an equally busy time in the cider makers calendar, when fruit is harvested, milled, pressed and stored for fermentation and cider and perry production is in full flow.
