What are cider and perry?
Cider is a fermented alcoholic drink made from apples and is produced in much the same way as wine; it is not brewed like beer.
Perry is made from pears, usually from specialised perry pear varieties. Unpalatable for eating, and used only for perry, they have varying levels of astringency and tannins. Some modern perry (sometimes marketed as pear cider) can additionally be produced from dessert pears which will have no tannins and little bitterness.
CAMRA is committed to playing a leading role in the provision of information, education, and training to all those with an interest in cider and perry.
