May is Cider Month
To raise awareness of cider and perry production, CAMRA celebrates Cider Month twice a year. These are in October and May, during which time our local branches organise cider and perry events across the country. Unlike real ale production, which can happen at any time of the year, real cider and perry can only be made when the fruit is ripe and is tied to a natural cycle of the apple and pear trees found in orchards around the country. May was chosen because it is when the orchards bloom and begin producing fruit which will then be harvested. It is also when cider and perry production in the previous year reaches maturity and can start being enjoyed.
