Join us to celebrate the launch of ‘Modern British Cider’ by Gabe Cook, published by CAMRA Books. On Friday 17th September at 7pm start, in the Event Room at The Yew Tree Inn. Hosted by Gabe himself, aka ‘The Ciderologist’, we will be celebrating the wonderful place that cider occupies in our modern culture. Gabe will talk about his journey to craft the book, and read key passages that help us understand where cider is and where cider might go.
Best of all, we have joined forces with Gabe to once again make cider together. A carefully crafted, bottle conditioned blend will launch alongside the book. You’ll have to come along to find out what it is!
We will also get to sample some unusual and exciting bottles from a few of the producers featured in the book.
So come and join us, for merry imbibing, book celebration, and of course a few nibbles on some cheese & bread as well.
Tickets are £10 for all that, 7pm, Friday 17th September. Of course we will have copies available for you to buy and be signed by Gabe on the night!!
