Branch Cider Pub of the Year 2019

There are currently 23 pubs in the branch area shown on What Pub as selling real cider and/or perry. Following the decision not to make an award last time (see the article in More Beer Summer 2018 edition), it is hoped that this coming year will see a much improved situation. Let’s hope there are plenty of nominations, with several pubs being in contention for the award of the overall best cider pub in the branch area. Nominations will close towards the end of the year so please you cider, perry (and beer) drinkers do take time to check out which ciders and perries are on sale at the bar in these 23 pubs. The pub should ideally be selling excellent cider and/or perry all the year round and also be promoting its sale in some way, such as a cider festival or having a range of different ciders and perries from a range of different producers, on sale throughout the full year. There are no ‘tied cider houses’ in the branch area so choice, quality and the range is all down to the management and staff at each pub.

Nominations for cider pub of the year to Mike Robinson at ku.gro.armac.bor@redic

Best Newcomer/ Most Improved Branch Cider Pub.

The hunt is also on for the best newcomer and/or most improved cider pub of the year within the branch area. The closing date will again be towards the end of the year. So do you know of any pub that has started selling real cider or perry on a regular basis during the year or has vastly improved its real cider and perry offering to customers during the last 12 months.

Nominations for either category again please to Mike Robinson at ku.gro.armac.bor@redic
