This month on Fermentation Beer and Brewing Radio, we turn our back on the beer and embrace the power of the apple with the help of some of the very best cider makers and cider experts in the business!
- The Ciderologist himself, Gabe Cook, who encourages her to try some contemporary cider;
- Drinks writer and co-founder of Little Pomona Cider, Susanna Forbes;
- Beer & cider expert, Pete Brown, and
- one of the best cider makers in the world, Tom Oliver (Oliver’s Cider).
PLUS, live in the studio, cider aficionado, Jane Peyton, guides Emma through a tutored tasting of some of the very best contemporary ciders around.
We taste four ciders and a perry on air:
- Ross on Wye Cider & Perry – Headless Man
- Pilango Cider – Hopped Cider
- Pilton Cider – Somerset Keeved Cider
- Little Pomona – Hazy Ways Part One
- Oliver’s Cider & Perry – Classic Perry
