Show Notes

Join hosts Gabe Cook, Grant Hutchison and Martyn Goodwin-Sharman as they welcome you, for the first time, to the Neutral Cider Hotel!

But first, the guys congratulate the team at Cider-Review for their launch party, which brings to light something that was missing from the Hotel. A drink every time the guys make a reference throughout this section will surely see you right!

Then it’s onto this week’s featured cider, Pearson’s Dry, which the guys give their swift views on before it's on to the news. There’s a lot to digest, with Sassy Cider making their way into Majestic, a few stray cats and some hopped juice, not so yum sounding flavoured cider, and some from across the pond, a collab of sound and cider brings Road Apples to life!

This week’s guest is the original Saviour of Cider, Simon Wright. From a small archway in East London to a bigger archway on the Bermondsey Beer Mile, Hawkes Cider quickly became a by-word for bold and contemporary branding, fresh, modern ciders and London’s finest tap room. Attracting the attention of Brewdog back in 2018, he left the company last year to pursue ventures new, so let’s see what’s on the horizon. The guys chat about everything, from the open arms of the cider community, the nature of selling a business, the difference between the US and the UK and more. 

Then it’s onto the speakpipe, featuring a message from Sam from Vessel Beer Shop in Plymouth, and it’s all about the homebrew side of cider!
