October 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.
This October we’re celebrating apple and pear harvests, and the cider and perry community.
We’re able to come together and hold physical events this October, and CAMRA has put together a map so you can find a cider and perry event near you. Submit your own event using the form below the timeline or check out the listings here.
You can also follow along with the timeline to learn about the community traditions that take place at this time of year, find out how the cider community adopted crowdfunding to support innovative new publications, read a host of new and exclusive CAMRA Learn & Discover content, and take part in a Cider and Perry Month campaign. You can join in on social media too, just use #CiderMonth, #NotFromConcentrate or find us on Twitter and Facebook.
You’ll need to book in advance for some events and tastings. Make sure to look ahead in the timeline so you don’t miss out!
