Batlow Ciderfest 2015
You couldn't have asked for a better day or crowd!
We're not going to lie, it was a big effort. We spent the majority of last week finishing and testing our second mobile bar. Printing labels and signs and finishing beer (just in time).
It was all worth it. The weather was amazing! The atmosphere was festive and the beer (and cider) was flowing!
We always look forward to events like Ciderfest and it's not for the reason you may think. Sure we make a little money but, what makes it truly worthwhile is the people. We get to introduce hundreds of people to our beer. We get to spend the day interacting with the people, the reason we make it and WE LOVE IT!
This year we had 8 beers on tap which is a first for us and we launched our crowdfunding efforts, so it really was a day of exciting events.
The day was a great success in the true sense of the word and we look forward to next year!
Cant wait to sell you all some stubbies from our new bottling plant!
A red ale is a form of pale ale that is categorised by its colour. There’s still debate around the fact of whether or not a red ale is really its own class of ale or whether or not it falls under the umbrella of English bitter. A red ale is categorised by a slight sweetness and tea-like flavours. It has a light hop and toasted malt flavours, making it a well-balanced beer. It is made with a high proportion of pale malts and often contains caramel colouring to give it its signature red hue. It is often that red ales will have a dry finish. These beers are very easy drinking, as our very own Tim Martin will tell you from personal experience!
