Another Exciting Stubbing Apple Day
A great event for cider connoisseurs The Stubbing Wharf, Hebden Bridge is celebrating Apple Day on Saturday 22nd October 2011, commencing at noon. Guests of the Stubbing Wharf have been enjoying this annual celebration of the fruit that makes a wonderful drink for five years.
However, last year it became ‘a bit of a phenomenon,’ as landlord Matt Browne describes. “We offer apple juice, a range of bottled and draft ciders, apple pressing, as well as apple-related food, entertainment and fun and games. But last year, the event became very popular with many cider enthusiasts and connoisseurs from the region and further a field.”
With this growing following and a range of bottled ciders and more than 20 real, farmhouse ciders from numerous craft-producers on draft, the Apple Day certainly is a mini cider festival for the real enthusiasts of traditional ciders.
As well as the Stubbing’s extensive range of real ales and good food, it is a family day too, with a variety of different apple juices available; you can even bring your own apples and press your own juice.
“We’re grateful to the Calderdale Local Orchard Group (CLOG) for their involvement with the Apple Day, and running the pressing, pulping and juicing,” adds Matt. CLOG will also be offering cider-making courses on the Sunday.
The Stubbing Wharf is located off the A646 on the west side of Hebden Bridge, between the River Calder and the Rochdale Canal. There is ample car parking. By bus, numbers 590 592 594 stop close by. By train or by foot, the Stubbing Wharf is a short walk along the canal towpath after lock 11.
