We can’t wait for Nottingham CAMRA’s Cider Saunter and here’s why: hot days, long summer nights, nice dry ciders and, of course, a healthy Castle Rock competition to keep things fresh…

Our head buyer Pete with last year’s #crbcidersaunter competition winner David and his 20l of cider!

The Cider Saunter has become an annual calendar event for cider lovers all over Nottingham as it sees pubs up their offering, showcasing the best of local.

We’ve also got a very special cider on the way, thanks to the guys at Bottle Kicking Cider and to Pauline at the Fox and Grapes who made it happen. Bright Cider Life is made with a unique blend of west country fruit high in tannins with culinary varieties from the East Midlands. Though it looks and tastes rather deceptively like apple juice it comes in at a juicy 6.8% ABV – you’ve been warned!

To tick off Nottingham CAMRA stops (and neighboring branches)  you’ll want to saunter on up to the following:

Bread and Bitter
Canalhouse
Fox and Crown
Fox and Grapes
Kean’s Head
Lincolnshire Poacher

Newshouse
Poppy and Pint
Stratford Haven
Vat and Fiddle
Willowbrook

And our own Castle Rock wildcards include:

Cricketers Rest
Embankment
Horse and Plough

If it’s a taste of Bright Cider Life you’re after, the pubs in bold will happily oblige, all with a box on the bar at and some point throughout the Cider Saunter.

This year we’ve also ramped our competition up to a juicy two-parter.

Part one, simply enjoy a pint or half of real cider in all participating Castle Rock pubs for a chance to win a 20L box of cider of your choice*. (See below for a list of all participating Castle Rock pubs). Ask the bar staff to give you a form to fill out as you check each pub of the list.

Part two, take a picture with or of your golden nectar (here we’re welcoming silly selfies, spot on still lifes or groovy gifs) and the person behind the most impressive shot will receive a hamper made for cider lovers.

Share with us using #crbcidersaunter and don’t forget CAMRA want to see using #nowdrinking and #cidersaunter, too! Make sure to get your drink and the pub your in (from the list below) in the picture. The rest is up to you!
