It does not seem that long ago that I saw this poster for the Cider Festival at the NWAF and yet here we are already!
The Brunswick was awarded Derby CAMRA's Cider Pub of the Year this year so what a great way to celebrate this fact by going along to their Cider and Sausage festival.
There are some great Ciders in the list to try, See below for complete list of Ciders at this festival.
|The Brunswick's annual Cider and Sausage festival 2016|
This real ale pub is only 200 yards from Derby Midland railway station which is handy if you are wanting to attend by train.
