Beoir Cider Competition
The first Beoir Cider Competition has been scehduled to take place at The Wine Rack, Stewartstown on Saturday the 22nd of April 2017.
The competition is open to to all commercial cider or perry producers on the island of Ireland. Entries are €40 per cider, with a maximum of 5 entries per producer. This is due to time and available judges and will hopefully encourage entrants to think about which ciders should be entered. We are also judging amateur "homebrewed" ciders alongside the professional entries. These may be entered at a reduced rate of 6EUR per cider with a maximum of 3 entries per person. A discount code is available in this case, please contact the competition organiser.
