After the popularity of ciders, perry and wine at the 2005 festival, we've stocked a much wider range at subsequent festivals.

See below for details of the 37 ciders, 11 perries and 2 cider perries that are planned to feature from the start of the 2014 Festival. You can also download the tasting notes here (26kb PDF, opens in separate window).

For more information, check out the Cider & Perry section of the CAMRA website (opens in new window).
