You Know You’re a Vermonter If…

August 9, 2014

There’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? Well then maybe it’s time to test yourself. Tally how many of the following you would say yes to, and determine how much of a Vermonter you really are!

  2. You know there are 5 seasons: Summer, Fall, Winter, Mud Season, Winter Part 2.
  3. Creemee season is actually the best season.
  4. Camel’s Hump isn’t just a part of an animal.  IMG_1494
