Cider & Perry Pub of the Year
About the Award
The National Cider & Perry Pub of the Year recognises the best pub or club that promotes and encourages the sale of quality real cider and perry across the country.
There are four stages to the competition and the winner is normally announced in October as part of CAMRA’s October Cider & Perry Month.
Take part in Cider Month!
Cider Month is celebrated in both May and October
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. May was chosen because it is when the orchards come into bloom and fruit begins to set which will then be harvested. October is a very active time for cider makers when production is in full flow and most cider producers are harvesting the fruit.
