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. Yet what really got us was the cold. Bitter cold. Cold that grabs your face, makes your eyes water, and then freezes those tears before you can even get to your car in the morning. #polarvortex.
Yet all of us here at Woodchuck continue to live through these Vermont winters year after year. The spring season may just be the reason why. It’s a glorious time of year. We had to wait a little longer than usual this year but the leaves are back, tulips are popping from the ground, and winter coats are headed to storage closets. 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.

It’s less than a week away… the WAKARUSA MUSIC FESTIVAL! In Ozark, AR, it’s a weekend full of crazy fun, and CRAZY GOOD music. On June 5th-8th, the festival will be a melodic explosion of great bands including The String Cheese Incident, BASSNECTAR, The Flaming Lips and more! So why are we so pumped? More reasons than we can count, but we have an extra dose of excitement as Woodchuck® Cider is sponsoring the Backwoods Stage!
The Backwoods is one of six beat wailing stages at Wakarusa this year. The stage alone will bring great music from over 20 bands over the course of the weekend, so why not take time to take a look at some and get pumped!
Memorial Day is here again! Here’s to hoping yours is full of cold ciders, sunshine, and cookouts with friends and family.
More importantly the weekend is dedicated to recognizing the brave men and women who have served to protect our country. In 2012, we received an American flag which was flown on a combat support mission in Afghanistan from Pilot-in-Command Marcus Bennett. Marcus wrote to us explaining that he was looking forward to getting back home and enjoying a Woodchuck. As you can imagine, this meant the world to us. We have been holding onto the flag waiting to find the perfect place to display. Our new Cidery will be that place, and we will display it proudly for all our fans to see!
For this Memorial Day Weekend, we wanted to bring attention to another occasion occurring this month. May is Celiac Awareness Month. 1 in 100 people worldwide are born with the autoimmune disorder, preventing them from including gluten in their diet.
As gluten is found in wheat, rye, and barley, it’s an ingredient that is difficult to avoid! One of the great things about hard cider is that it is naturally gluten-free! As Woodchuck® meets the dietary needs of those with Celiac Disease, a gluten intolerance, or a gluten sensitivity, we’ve been able to try our hand at some tasty gluten-free recipes… with chocolate? Of course! Get ready to be THAT person at the party… and by THAT person, we mean the one that brought the delightful GLUTEN-FREE, CHOCOLATE dessert made with WOODCHUCK! This weekend, Give a ‘Chuck™ about Memorial Day and Celiac Awareness with our Woodchuck Cider Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes!
