Just a few days left until the event we have been planning for over a year! The kegs are ready to be tapped, the lots are ready to be filled, and that grass is ready for some dancing shoes!

We’ve put together all the essentials together to make sure your day is as FANTASTIC and fluid as possible.

You Know You’re a Vermonter If…

vermont-headerThere’s a reason we’re setting down our roots here in Vermont. With over 100 Vermonters working in the new cidery, we definitely have the green mountain vibe going on. If you had to describe Vermont in hashtags, it would look a little something like this… #802 #iLoVermont #LakeChamplain #CamelsHump #champlives #Creemee #WOODCHUCKCIDER. Recognize those?

5 Ways to Keep Cool at your Summer Weddings

IMG_3786header

Here’s one for the ladies of the Woodchuck Community! We’ve reached the middle of July, and the summer wedding season is in full swing! We know this because collectively here at the Cidery, we have attended or have taken part in at least 25 weddings already this summer. You may have already rotated through those three dresses, and maybe you’re nailing down that present you finally found (You have a year post-wedding for the gift, right?). It is a blast to catch up with old friends and that destination wedding you’ve saved your vacation time for is just around the corner. The one issue? The summer heat is entering its peak! Not only is it distracting, but it can take a toll on your look! So what can be done? We Give A ‘Chuck™ about creating amazing memories, but there is no reason we can’t be comfortable while the good times roll!

We asked the women of the Cidery their best tips for cooling down at a wedding and we wanted to share them with the Community. Here’s 5 ways to cool down at your summer weddings this season.

Apple Blossom Season

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA We had ourselves a winter up here in VT. There was the usual mixed bag of rain, sleet, ice, and snow. We even had a few blockbuster snowstorms.

Some say the sweet isn’t quite as sweet without the sour. Working through winter frost bite to get to spring rejuvenation may just be how that particular idiom came to be.
