Event Information:

On May 18th we’ll be kicking off a 3 date ‘Cider vs Cheese session’ residency at the Hand of Glory Pub in Hackney Downs. The first one focuses on West Country ciders, made only using fresh pressed apples, love and traditional methods. No concentrate juice, water, chemicals, filtering or any of that nonsense, just proper cider. Oh and Perry, which is fermented pears. No such thing as Pear Cider.

Its going to be paired expertly with some of the finest cheeses known to mankind, bought to you by the folk at Raw Cheese Power, The vanguard for artisan cheese makers, on a mission to defend their heritage, methods & livelihoods from the onslaught of the supermarkets & their legions of bland, processed food.

This isn’t a sterile tasting session with regimented rules of enjoyment- no floral notes or spitting into buckets- this is a journey into the dark art of cidermaking and maximum cheese pleasure, with health measures for all. We’ll be enjoying cider from the producer who regularly gets abducted by aliens, supping Joe Strummer’s favourite tipple, and possibly a nip of the holy grail of the orchard- Cider Brandy. There’ll be enough anecdotes, history, magic and romance to impress your mates for at least a week afterwards.
