25 Years of Campaigning for Real Cider & Perry
CAMRA has now been campaigning for 25 years to promote real cider and perry alongside British real ale. This landmark anniversary will be celebrated throughout 2013.
CAMRA will be contacting pubs listed on the ‘Real Cider Sold Here’ list in 2013 and arrange to supply them with promotional material in advance of October Cider month.
Find a Cider Pub in Greater Manchester
In due course the "Cider Pubs In Greater Manchester " webpage will list all the pubs and clubs within the Greater Manchester region that sell real cider or perry.
At the moment this is a work in progress.
About Real Cider and Perry
Real cider is a long-established traditional drink which is produced naturally from apples and is neither carbonated or pasteurised. However real cider is in a similar situation to that which faced real ale some 30 years ago with the number of outlets for real cider is diminishing, even in the West Country. The situation with perry (which is made from pears) is even worse, as it is rarely available away from the farm gate. It is unfortunate that many of the most well known ciders in the UK are cold, fizzy keg products which have been produced artificially rather than naturally. It is well worth you tracking down some real ciders and perries and more and more people are discovering for themselves how deliciously mellow, aromatic and intoxicating the flavours of naturally produced real cider can be.
As a result of the difficulties facing real cider, CAMRA has a cider and perry committee within CAMRA to inform consumers about the choice of real cider and perry available and to encourage the producers to continue production.
