Talk:Cider Pub Guide to the Lake District
I wonder if we do need a Cumbria page now, redirecting to Lake District or something, since a few pubs have appeared on the Cumbria section of Regional Producers.
Some more info about Solway Cider:
Solway Cider A new cider producing business run by Garry Parsons & Don Stevenson Garry, a keen Climber & Fellwalker, moved to Cumbria in the Spring 2004 from Bristol. A keen cider drinker and CAMRA member, he tried most of the local brews but yearned for the taste of home: CIDER! Planned from the summer of 2004, it wasn't until the winter of 2005 that he contacted a friend, cidermaker, John, in Somerset, to ask if he could make some cider there, using his apples and equipment, and so Solway Cider was born. Don (a climbing buddy of Garry's) moved to Port Carlisle in 2005 and agreed to join forces and help with the business. They plan to get some land and plant an orchard of their own, to buy their own cider press this year and then make a limited quantity of cider, using only Cumbrian apples.
The Brickyard in Carlisle is currently selling - Solway Cider's DOG Rough 7% and other pubs are showing interest. Contact Don 079633 05036
