Yesterday was #WorldAppleDay, a day we quite appreciate here at the cidery. Where would we be without apples? Well we would have a whole lot of empty tanks! With the fall season upon us, there seems to be an abundance of the fresh picked fruit.  Have you gone apple-picking this season? Have you gone more than once? Well then you might have A WHOLE LOT of apples on your hands. They are delicious, but those ripe beauties do have an expiration date. Luckily… Halloween is just around the corner! The holiday of never-ending decorations, there’s no reason not to add some apple flavor to your spooky day. From décor, to treats, to fun party activities, don’t let those apples go to waste!

The First Out on a Limb™: Chocolate Raspberry!

With our new Out on a Limb™ series starting to hit stores, we’re excited to announce the first style of this innovative series… Woodchuck® Out on a Limb™ Chocolate Raspberry!

We’ve made Chocolate cider before, and Raspberry cider as part of our core line. So combining the two? Why not! Infused with cocao nibs and fresh raspberries, this first style of the series has a fruity bite with a smooth chocolate finish. The bitterness of the nibs cut the sweetness of the crisp apple taste, creating what we like to call… delicious!

Introducing Out on a Limb™!

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again. Here at the cidery, we Give A ‘Chuck™ about innovation. This passion has trickled through our Core styles and down to the crazy creativity of our Cellar Series line. I mean, who would have thought Chocolate cider was possible?!?! Only our mad scientists of cider. With the release of these various styles, we’ve found there’s been only one issue. Our fans can’t get enough of it! Whether it’s difficult to find, or it’s selling out too quickly, we keep getting requests to bring our more innovative styles (specifically our Cellar Series) into our patrons’ areas. Well that’s something it’s about time we remedy.

Introducing Out on a Limb™! We are switching up our Cellar Series line to make it easier for our fans to enjoy all the innovative styles released throughout the year. This six-pack will feature an ever-changing rotation of our ground-breaking ciders that we know the Woodchuck community is ready for. What’s it all about? Check it out.

Cool nights, warm days, and a return to the orchard.

PFYN6Over the last few nights here in Vermont, we have had to resist the urge to click the heat on! The nights are cooling down and the time-honored tradition of breaking out the trusty hoodie and warm socks is now upon us.

They are cool nights that give way to warm days. We head to work in jackets, break for lunch in t-shirts, and put the jacket back on to head home. It’s a weather pattern that different people like or dislike to varying degrees. Apples though? They love it. This time of year pushes that not-quite-ripe fruit to its full potential. Apples pick up their final highlights of color and crisp taste in these transition days from Summer to Fall.PFYN1This weather pattern is why Vermont apples are some of the best in the world. It is also prime time for Vermonter’s and tourists alike to visit the orchards and pick apples. While at the orchard they purchase cider, pies, donuts, and other farm stand goodies. Traffic through the orchards at this time can make or break a year of business.

Now, when one says “apple” some people think about delicious fruit. Others however will begin to daydream about mobile phones, tablets, and technology. The state’s tourism agency, along with the help of Woodchuck® and Small Dog Electronics, is hoping to get some crossover between those two groups. They are hiding Apple iPods and iPads in the apple orchards of Vermont. All you have to do is find it and it’s yours. That simple.
