Join us for the Gumption Growler Fill Launch Party!


With the launch of our boldest new style, it only made sense to step it up for the launch here at the Cider House. Without further ado, we’re excited to announce the Woodchuck® Gumption™ Growler-Fill Launch Party! We’ve never had growlers before so this is something very special!

A week from today, on February 27th, head to the Woodchuck Cider House to celebrate the launch of Gumption™! From 11-6pm, we’ll be filling a limited number of growlers with the new style. For $14.00 get a 64 oz. growler filled with Gumption fresh from the tap, and a FREE custom pint glass to enjoy the cider with at home. There will only be 100 growlers with 100 pints available, so make sure to grab them while they last!

Introducing Woodchuck GUMPTION!

header4You might call it audacity, or you might call it courage. Here at the Woodchuck® cidery, we call it Gumption. Twenty-four years ago, we had the Gumption to ignite the comeback of the American craft cider industry. We’ve had the Gumption to push the limits of innovation and infuse the CRAZIEST AND MOST AWESOME things into our ciders. (Chocolate? Mint? Hops? Oh, they’re just a few!) We continue to have the Gumption to go above and beyond for our devoted fans, and combine our own passion with that of theirs.

P.T. Barnum once noted, “everybody drank cider-spirits called ‘gumption’.” Well, as we celebrate the spirit of a legendary showman, let us clear our throats, raise the curtains, and bring attention to our greatest and boldest announcement yet…

Woodchuck Winter Chill Weekend: RECAP!


It was another weekend full of great music, with great people, and Real Cider From A Real Place™. However this time, we made it a bit seasonal! We took our Winter Chill and brought it to the beautiful green mountains, all covered with snow. We had a KICK-ASS kick-off party on Friday night at Higher Ground with a performance by Rubblebucket, and opener Madaila. We then took to the slopes on Saturday and brought the Winter Chill Weekend fun up to Sugarbush Resort. With an indoor/outdoor Après-Ski party, and performance by Josh Panda, we enjoyed the fresh powder and tunes. Oh that’s right… there may have been some fireworks! We capped off the weekend with a final toast at Nectar’s and a performance by the Seth Yacovone Band. We’d say it was an overall success. Take a look at some highlights…

With a sold out show at Higher Ground, it only made sense to have a talented illusionist on hand. (He might have resembled someone who you could say has a lot of Gumption…)
