It is organised by Jules Gray, who runs the award-winning specialist beer shop Hop Hideout based in the Kommune food hall, and she said the event will be a “much-needed boost for the city, the hospitality and brewing sector” after a tumultuous period for pubs, bars, restaurants and brewers during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Cider release party at The Cider Hole in Kelham Island

Sheffield’s only cider-centric bar and urban micro-cidery is set to release its first three batches - produced with apples collected from 31 houses around the city!

The Cider Hole opened in Kelham Island last September and on March 5 and 6 will fulfill its promise of becoming Sheffield’s only urban micro-cidery by releasing three ciders produced on-site.

The new ciders are Cool Neighbours – a tart, funky, and dry cider named after all the cool people bar owner Mike Pomranz met collecting fruit – and Too Many Apples – a tangy, drinkable cider which earned its name after Mike found more fruit than he bargained for.

The third cider – Ask Albert – is a naturally-fermented mix of Sheffield garden apples and proper cider apple juice provided by Ross-on-Wye Cider in Herefordshire, resulting in a more traditional tasting English cider with a touch of tannin.

Mike himself will be on-site for both days of the release event, pouring cider and answering questions.

The Saturday, March 5, session will run from 1pm to 10pm, while the Sunday, March 6, session is from 1pm to 6pm. Both are free to attend.
