Real cider is a long established traditional drink, but most of the cold fizzy products we are used to seeing are far from the real thing. Real cider is produced naturally from apples and is neither carbonated or pasteurised, while real perry is made from pears.
There are a wide variety of beer types from malty, lightly-hopped milds to dark and bitter stouts and porters. There is beer out there to suit everyone’s taste
In the early 1970s, CAMRA coined the term ‘real ale’ to describe traditional draught cask beers. ‘real ale’ distinguishes itself from the processed and highly carbonated beers that were promoted by big brewers at that time.
Worcester CAMRA would like to send a big thank you to the staff of Salopian brewery in Shrewsbury who hosted a visit from 16 of us on the 4th of March. Since our last visit to Salopian some years ago the brewery has moved to a new, larger site on the outskirts of the town which has enabled them to produce a lot more of their superb beer!
Worcester CAMRA Taking to the River. Picture the scene; a balmy sun-kissed August evening, a stately riverboat trip up the historic Severn to a river-side hostelry to sample fine ales and engage in friendly conversation
