Earth Week 2014!

Earth-Week-2014-blog-header

We here at Woodchuck® take great pride in crafting the highest quality cider in the land.  One of the key parts of that last sentence is “the land”.  Without a healthy earth, apples won’t grow, and without apples there is no Woodchuck.

We have worked hard to keep an eye on the environment as we have grown over the last 23 years.  We were one of the first to change our packaging to recycled material.  We also continue to work on bringing more renewable energy into our power portfolio.  We’ll talk more about this as the week goes on, but first we want to let you know about our Woodchuck Earth Week 2014!

The United States of Cider

CiderCon 2013Cider is growing.  Fast.  It grew 65% in 2012.  New cider brands are starting up all the time.  Last week in Chicago, a good portion of them came together to learn more about each other at CiderCon 2013.  While they were at it, they voted to form a national association.  And so it shall be… The United States Association of Cider Makers is now a real thing!

Here at Woodchuck, we couldn’t be more excited.  Just like apples in an orchard, there are many varieties of cider makers out there.  Bringing all these cider makers together will only serve to grow the category the right way and with the input of all. Continue reading
