During the Grand Opening Ciderbration this past summer, we realized two things.
- We have the best fans in the world.
- Nothing goes together better than Woodchuck® and music.
With incredible performances from some of our favorite bands, and the contagious energy from our ‘Chuck community, you could say we’ve been eager to bring the combo back. The added touch? Well with a fan base of outdoor enthusiasts, it only made sense to include our beautiful Green Mountains during this snowy white season. So hold on tight, as we’re excited to announce the Woodchuck Winter Chill Weekend!
The final countdown has begun for… WOODCHUCK DAY 2015!
For many, February 2nd, or Groundhog Day, is spent eagerly waiting to see if Punxsutawney Phil sees his harrowing shadow. Here at Woodchuck®? We still wait to see what our forecasting friend foretells, but we also like to celebrate with a pint. For us, February 2nd is Woodchuck Day. With events scattered across all 50 states, we take this time to celebrate the continuing growth of the cider world, and the exciting innovation to come with the budding seasons (no matter of how long winter lasts!). As for the ciders already near you? Get out there, try three different Woodchuck styles, and get the Woodchuck Day 2015 UNTAPPD Badge!
As we reach the end of another year, it’s time to take a look back at what came with 2014. Here at Woodchuck®, it’s a time to reflect on the goals we set, the ones we accomplished, and how we’ve grown as a company. As for our 2014? Let’s just say it was quite the KICK-ASS year!
Let’s take a look…
To wrap up the 1st Annual Vermont Cider Week, the Woodchuck® Cider Makers are taking innovation to another level. Not only will they be tapping new, never released styles, but they’ve been prepared in… a firkin! This weekend will be the first ever Cider House Firkin Weekend. Are you finding yourself thinking … “What the firk is a Firkin?” Let us help you out:
A Firkin: A type of keg used for cask conditioning. Firkins can be wooden or metal, and carry one quarter of a barrel, 72 pints, or 9 imperial gallons.
How is this vessel tapped? Well it can get a bit messy! (but messy is fun right?) The keg is laid down on its side, and the spout is driven right through the head horizontally. With only the addition of a breathing tube, the cider will flow only with natural carbonation and gravity.
Lastly… what kind of firkin’s will we be enjoying this weekend? Take a look!
We’ve reached the end of October, and this year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here at Woodchuck®, we tried not to just think pink, but we spent the month pouring Pink in hopes to bring attention to the cause and the organizations that support it. Across the 50 states, we teamed up with bars and restaurants to bring our Private Reserve Pink back on draft, a special style that was developed to support the local organization Dragonheart Vermont that helps cancer survivors after treatment. The style sits close to our hearts, as one of Woodchuck’s former cider makers created the style to support his wife; a founding member of Dragonheart Vermont, and a 10 year breast cancer survivor.
We’re excited to give you a peek at what went on this month in the restaurants and bars we partnered with on this cause. Check it out!
