Cidery Construction Continues

ConstructionHeader_1The new Woodchuck® Cidery is starting to take shape!  After months of watching dirt piles get pushed around, the ground is level, the foundation poured, and steel is finally starting to rise here in Middlebury, VT.  The first part to be constructed is the bottling line and warehouse area.  The office space and visitor center will go up after that.

It’s a thrill to see the first portion of the structure go up.  The project has been four years in the making and to finally see the result of all that effort is certainly exciting.  Construction will continue right through the fall and winter with plans to be completed by the spring of 2014.

beams1We have been documenting the construction process over the last few months and have a cool way for you to keep up with all the things happening in our corner of the world.

Our Construction Page is now live on!

Head there for a constant stream of photos and video of the construction as it happens.  It is broken out by month so you can go back and see things from the start.  Thanks to all our fans out there… without your passion for Woodchuck Hard Cider a project like this could never happen!
