We don’t want to admit it, but the seasons are starting to change up here in Vermont.
While we are technically still in the dog days of summer, early mornings are starting to require a bit more than a t-shirt. As for the trees in our parking lot? Well they’re starting to turn! ===>
As we notice these subtle changes, we also see those seasonal craft brews trickle onto store shelves. For us here at the cidery, that means it’s time for Woodchuck® Fall Harvest to start filling the tanks. The exact same recipe you remember from previous years, reminiscent of apple pie, this style puts a tasty spin on our cider with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and a hint of white oak. Can you say… autumn in a bottle? Yum!
802 is Vermont’s only area code. There are only 12 other states that can boast having a single area code. In some ways it has become a rallying call, (pun definitely intended), for Vermonters to unite around. In recent years, ‘802’ has evolved into an informal logo and point of pride among residents and frequent visitors alike.
August 2nd is 8/02. Only seems right that on 8/02… in the 802… we release a few special batch ciders that will only be available in Vermont. Continue reading
One of the big things we Give A ‘Chuck™ about here at Woodchuck® is innovation. That spirit leads to handcrafted cider styles that are constantly evolving. We aren’t afraid to try new ingredients or yeast strains or apple varieties. Around every corner our cider makers deliver the next great Woodchuck. We thought it was high time our variety pack evolved just like our ciders do.
Introducing the new… Woodchuck Cluster ‘Chuck™ Variety Pack!
Have the Cider Makers been at it again? Looks like they’re always at it! The newest addition to the Cellar Series line has been in the works for several years now. One of the head Cider Maker’s favorites to date, this style has undergone several stages of development, producing many different test versions of the liquid. As the final product is now bottled and ready to hit stores near you, we’re excited to announce the Woodchuck® Cellar Series Sour Cherry!
It’s been quite a journey for our newest core style! First, as the jump starter of our Cellar Series line, Dry Hop pushed the limits of innovation with an aggressive amount of cascade hops. Since our fans kept asking to bring it back, we then revived the style on draft as Hopped Apple. Due to the overwhelming response, we’re excited to introduce the newest core style… Woodchuck® Hopsation™! If you haven’t already tried this delicious liquid, this hop-forward cider has the pine and citrus aromas of those same great cascade hops. Combining our crisp apple taste with the bitterness of the hops, Hopsation is a semi-dry style, perfect to enjoy year-round!
Here at Woodchuck, we take pride in our innovation. Through our seasonal styles, and the ultra-limited small batches of the Cellar Series, our cider makers are able to share their creative genius with our amazing fans. However, it’s not often that a style makes it into our core line, making today’s announcement that much more exciting! Take a look back at the history behind each core, and how they made it into our year round selection!
