Cider season is officially open

We welcomed the official start of cider season (although you should really be drinking it all year long, you know) with our good friend and cider-making genius Tom Oliver in the house.

Tom makes some of the best cider in the UK and his ciders have been perennial favourites at HB&B - the glorious hopped cider At The Hop, medium-dry superstar Shezam and dry delight Gold Rush to name a few. On Saturday, Tom brought down more of his new-season specials for customers (and, indeed, staff) to enjoy and all we can say is WOW.

His new Posh Scrumpy was so popular that we sold out on the day but look out for more of this delicious sweeter cider soon. Also extremely popular was the 2016 version of At The Hop, the Fine Dry Perry and his Traditional Cider, for those who like their ciders dry.

We're also happy to bring back the cider flagons - you'll currently find Shezam on flagon-fill for the extremely reasonable price of just £7 a litre. No excuse not to get some cider inside you.
