Ask one question and find more to ask.
I gather that "cider" means a fermented beverage, and that CAMRA serves as the respected authority and guardian of the tradition. I also now understand that there are many "non-real" pretenders that I'm better off not allowing to pass my lips. I read that a "scrumpy" was once a rough and unrefined cider but has gotten transformed into a more elegant beverage.
So what should I look for when I search out a pub for a real cider? I have become a "cheap drunk" in my senior years, so the alcohol equivalent of a couple of pints of beer is now my limit. Does that translate into a couple of glasses of cider or perry? And while in Devon would I be going wrong to drink cider and perry in favor of beer?
