In a real coup for Manchester Beer and Cider Festival, legendary cidermaker Tom Oliver will be hosting a special session at #MBCF20 on Thursday 23rd January.
Tom Oliver has been described by food and drinks writer Pete Brown as ‘simply the greatest cidermaker in the world, a real artist.’
Tom will talk you through a tasting of five ciders with his trade mark enthusiasm for his subject. Tickets for this will go quickly, so grab them while you can.
Renowned the world over, Tom is a multi-award winner for both his ciders and perry who draws large crowds wherever he talks.
This will be a blending masterclass as he explains the skills in creating harmony he learnt as sound engineer (and tour manager) for the band The Proclaimers and how they apply to blending using the holy trinity of tannins, sweetness and sharpness.
Tom Oliver has also frequently produced collaborations with brewers around the world. His collaboration with Thornbridge and Garret Oliver of Brooklyn Brewery produced The Serpent in 2016. Since then he has produced collaborations with Mills Brewing, Burning Sky and Kernel. Out soon will be his latest collaboration, with Manchester’s Cloudwater Brewery.
