Kommune to host Sheffield’s first cider festival
Castlegate food hall Kommune has teamed up with Hogan’s Cider to host Sheffield’s first dedicated cider festival next weekend on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 September.
Hogan’s has curated more than 10 cider producers from across the UK to bring more than 50 types of cider to the festival, which takes place over two days. It will start at 5pm on Friday and then will run all day Saturday from 11am until 10:30pm.
Following the success of GRUB’s cider festival in Manchester, run for the second year in succession and also curated by Hogan’s, Kommune has decided to take full advantage of their city centre space by combining a great venue with an unrivalled list of excellent cider from across the UK.
The ciders will be available in many different forms including keg, hand pull, via bottle or out of the old bag in a box! 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 and learn a bit more about the cider on offer. Some of the confirmed producers are Piltons, Greggs Pit, Cotswold, Little Pomona, Oliver’s and of course Hogan’s.
Sophie from Hogan’s said: “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 with plenty of bottled cider available to take home.
The cider festival is dog and family friendly (under 18s 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 linktr.ee/Kommune 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.
