Sad to report that Keith Smith died last Saturday after a long battle with cancer.

Keith was a loyal and enthusiastic supporter of Salt Hill Cider and for several years he helped me with picking and pressing each autumn and promoting our local cider at festivals and pubs around the country. His dedication and support will be missed by myself and Salt Hill Cider as we begin the first season of harvesting without Keith alongside.

A chance to enjoy some fun racing and have a few pints of Salt Hill Cider on September 11th in Cookham Dean.

The annual Gravity Grand Prix takes place all through the village so come for a day of fun and cider!

Many of the apples used in the cider come from just yards away from the race track

We’ve had some pretty good cider drinking weather lately which makes a nice change!

Salt Hill Cider has been going down well over the summer at the local festivals such as Ealing and Maidenhead and it is good to supply local people with their local cider.

I am pleased to report that our Merry England cider is going to be stocked in Windsor at the Old Fire Station arts centre from this week onwards.

This is what Salt Hill Cider is all about, around 3 miles from press to glass!

I hope the good people of Windsor will enjoy the cider and support their local culture.

Our cider will be at a couple more events this year; Ascot Beer Festival on Friday 30th September and Saturday 1st October   and then at Woking Beer Festival on the 11th & 12th of November.

Hopefully we will also be appearing at a few other pubs during the coming months.



A great event for cider drinkers this week; Ealing Beer & Cider Festival is open from Today through to Saturday night.

A fine selection of ciders and perries will be available including the full range of Salt Hill Cider.

Just for a change the weather is looking pretty good as well ; the forecast is 22 degrees all week which is a bit like summer!

Our CAMRA South Of England champion cider Autumn Gold will be there and is likely to go well as it’s really easy drinking and should be a good thirst quencher!

Well it’s sort of summer!

Although it hasn’t really got going yet the warm temperature makes for good cider drinking conditions.

Salt Hill Cider is available at the moment in Reading at the Nags Head and also the Fox & Hounds.

It will be appearing at some local festivals coming up; in July we will be at Ealing Beer Festival and later in the month we will be at our home beer festival in Maidenhead.
