There are a few ways you could spend your second last weekend of autumn, but here's a truly fitting one: the College Lawn is rounding out the season with a two-day celebration of cider, teaming fruit-based sips with apple-bobbing, live tunes and other autumnal delights.

From Friday, May 20–Sunday, May 22, the Prahran pub is throwing open the doors for its inaugural Cider Fest. Getting into the spirit, the beer garden is set to score a makeover complete with hay bales and picnic blankets working as the backdrop for your weekend's cider-sipping adventures.

At the bar, you'll find a swag of cider varieties on offer, from the likes of Pipsqueak, Willie Smith, Custard & Co, The Hills and more. Other liquid treats include toasty serves of mulled cider and cocktails like the Spicy Pear — a warming blend of pear syrup, Fireball, bourbon and ginger beer.

There'll be live tunes happening throughout the weekend. And alongside the pub's usual menu, you'll find roast pork off the spit — piled into a bap roll with apple and fennel slaw, or paired with sides like the bacon and potato salad, and honey mustard glazed dutch carrots.
