HUGE cider festival heading to KommunePosted by: Ashley Birch
Next week’s cider celebration features over 50 ciders from ten producers
Kommune have teamed up with Hogan’s cider to host Sheffield’s first dedicated cider festival on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 September.
Hogan’s have curated over 10 cider producers from across the UK to bring more than 50 types of cider to the two-day festival, which will start at 5pm on Friday and runs all day Saturday from 11am until 10:30pm.
The ciders will be available in many different forms including keg, hand pull, bottle or even out of the good old bag in a box! Organisers say the festival is all about enjoying great cider from across the UK, trying something new and meeting some of the producers to ask any questions to learn a bit more about the cider you’re drinking.
Some of the confirmed producers are Piltons, Greggs Pit, Cotswold, Little Pomona, Oliver’s and of course Hogan’s will be there too. Sophie from Hogan’s told VIBE: “Hogan's are really excited to be working with Kommune to bring a new festival to Sheffield dedicated to cider.
“We have put together a line up of amazing producers from across the UK who will showcase over 50 different types of cider. It's definitely a festival not to be missed!'
The festival will be held in the events space at Kommune, past the bar and next to Hop Hideout who will also be involved by hosting ‘drink and think’ sessions with some of the producers and they will have plenty of bottled cider for you to buy and take home.
The cider festival is dog and family friendly (under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult and don’t need a ticket) and of course you’ll be able to enjoy the great food line up at Kommune in between pints.
Tickets are £5 via Kommune’s website and this includes your own cider glass, ‘ciderpedia’ with info on all available ciders, free places on the ‘think and drink’ sessions at Hop Hideout and exclusive access to the many ciders on the line up.
