The Woodchuck Summer Music Festival Camping Checklist

Bonnaroo-2011-108---EDITEDThere’s camping, and then there’s… Festival Camping. There’s nothing like posting up in a field (or parking lot), living out of your car, and spending four days rocking to the sounds of your favorite music. Can it get dirty? Definitely.

Not only do we Give A ‘Chuck™ about the great music and ice cold Woodchuck® at ‘Roo, but there are some essentials we definitely Give A ‘Chuck about having in our (hopefully waterproof) duffel.

Woodchuck Cellar Series Ginger: Give a ‘Chuck about authentic ingredients

 Ginger-headerThe Woodchuck® cider makers have gone into the cellar once again and handcrafted Woodchuck Cellar Series Ginger. The style was first made popular as part of our Private Reserve Line in 2012 before going back into the cellar to be tweaked, matured, and perfected. Something that never changed though was Woodchuck fans calling for its return!

Woodchuck Ginger is a craft cider that is a perfect fit for the summer season, so we figured what better time than NOW to release it back into the wild. It brings together crisp culinary apple varieties with the subtle spice of organic ginger root.
