Only a few weeks to go until the backyard of our cidery turns into what can only be described as the most epic backyard bash of the summer. By the way, have you seen this year’s line up??? That’s right… Ciderstock 2017 will be headlined by THE ROOTS!
So besides the music… what makes it epic you ask? What does a cidery backyard bash even mean? Let’s take a look..
Let’s see how it all started…
Back in 2014, we opened the doors to our new cidery. We’ve been crafting cider in Vermont for 26 years, all of which culminated to our new home here on Exchange Street in Middlebury, VT.
As we officially moved in and started to nest, we decided to throw a party… 10,000 people showed up.Fans drove from all over the country, to come celebrate with us. We figured we might do another event for our 25th anniversary. Well, obviously we couldn’t wait that long.
So besides music, what goes down at Ciderstock?
Well FIRST… LOTS of Food. We have over 12 local and regional food trucks come to serve up tasty dishes to soak up that cider. Check out who’s coming this year! Second… LAWN GAMES. SO many lawn games. Start practicing your corn hole throw now, because #GAMEON.
Third… Cider. Cider, Cider, Cider. On top of both a draft tent and a can tent, we’ll be throwing our third annual Firkin Frenzy in the Cider House. Walk through the Tank Cellar and try four specialty ciders with a tasting from our Cider Makers! You’ll leave with a 16 oz. can of cider, koozie, and tickled taste buds. (Uh… are those our friends from Dirty Heads in the Cider House? We think so!)
Then obviously we cap it all off by blowing stuff up.
