Event Information: Ciderdog features a staggering 100 British ciders & perries, all expertly curated by our good friends The Real Al Company; dedicated suppliers of high-quality small batch cider.

A specially made 8m-long scaffolding bar will house our 100 bag-in-box ciders (under ice sheets tokeep them chilled) from an array of cider makers such as Sea Cider, Oliver’s, Turners, and Ascension.

From super sweet to bone dry, cloudy scrumpys, single varieties and blends Ciderdog has something for every cider drinker. There will be award winners, special one-off collaborations, and (traditionalists look away) cider mixed with everything from passion fruit and blueberry, to chilli and ginger. Plus The Miller slushy cocktail machine will return, serving frozen cider cocktails to keep you cool in the sun.

We’re mixing things up this year, with Que Padre Tacqueria making a special appearance (currently in residency at Highbury Library) serving up delicious tacos (3 for £10) to keep bellies full whilst cider sampling. We’ll have pairing recommendations to match the perfect ciders to their small plates. Vegan and gluten free guests will, as always, be well catered for (did we mention all the ciders are vegan and GF!)

Plus our top resident DJs will be spinning summer tunes in our huge beer garden, providing chilled out vibes, then keeping the party going ‘til late with 90s, 00s, r’n’b, hip hop, indie & more.

If cider isn’t your bag-in-box we have a host of London brewed craft beers (The Kernel, Partizan, Howling Hops, Pressure Drop to name a few) delicious soft drinks from Square Root Soda, low/no alcohol beers from Big Drop & a whole lot more to choose from.
