Woodthorpe Hall Cider Run

woodthorpehall2014f woodthorpehall2014e woodthorpehall2014d woodthorpehall2014c woodthorpehall2014b woodthorpehall2014aOn Saturday 11th October a number of Sheffield CAMRA members along with some regulars from the Three Tuns in Dronfield joined Dick Shepley and team at Woodthorpe Hall for the annual Cider Run and apple pressing.

The Cider Run is a local CAMRA tradition started by Chesterfield branch, possibly as a parody of the wine world’s Beaujolais Nouveau race, where we hand deliver a tub of Owd Barker Cider to the local village and enjoy lunch in a local pub (this year the Rutland Arms) before returning to Woodthorpe Hall to help with the apple pressing to make next years supply of cider. Once the days work was done the team was able to relax, socialise, enjoy tea, coffee, cider and home made cakes all around the bonfire. Which is in a shopping trolley.

You can enjoy what is left of last years production at the Steel City Beer & Cider Festival from 29th October to 1st November.
