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.
Over 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.This 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.

Time sure does fly! Woodchuck® Private Reserve Pumpkin has been an autumn staple for 5 years now. Highly sought out by our fans, we’ve had loyal patrons drive up to 8 hours to come get cases of this seasonal release. We’ve given the packaging a makeover, but it is still the fresh, rich, natural pumpkin taste you remember from years previous. Since it’s our five year anniversary release, we thought we’d take a look back to our very first release! Back in 2010, our cider makers went into the cellar to create this new Private Reserve with a Pumpkin, knife, and their bare hands. Check it out…
Happy #ThirstyThursday! As the unofficial start to the weekend, this day is often used to find those brews that you really enjoy, helping you get through the following day (5 o’clock on Fridays can never come soon enough!). You usually have a hankering for something specific. Let’s say… Woodchuck® Hopsation or Seasonal Fall Harvest? That sounds about right. So it’s reaching that time (that thirsty time), and you realized your go-to market is closed today! Shucks. What to do? WELL… it’s time to download the Woodchuck Mobile App! The Woodchuck Mobile App will let you locate our ciders near you, scroll through our various styles, and easily update us on all your Woodchuck endeavors. So what can you do with the app? Let’s take a look!
