Vermont Hard Cider


Vermont's apple orchards play a huge role in providing us with fresh apples, apple pies, apple cider doughnuts, and apple cider! But it doesn't stop there ...

Thanks to Woodchuck Hard Cider and others throughout the state, adults have a new thing to enjoy that originates from the trees. Hard cider is a great refreshing beverage to enjoy during Vermont's sunny days or cool nights. There are more than traditional apple flavor, too -- Cider makers are getting creative exploring complementary tastes of pear, ginger, raspberry, blueberry and more.

Woodchuck Hard Cider

Woodchuck Hard Cider has been crafting cider for almost 30 years. Come check out our Cidery, just off scenic Route 7 in Middlebury, VT. The Cider House and Tap Room welcomes visitors with self-guided tours, tastings, gear and 20 ciders on tap. We think there’s nothing better than swapping stories with family and friends over a pint at the Cidery.

With events, tastings and usual suspects (look out for the seasonal & limited release hard ciders) Stowe Cider is up-and-coming. Or, as they put it, "Let's skip the chit chat and get right to it!"

Citizen Cider

Enjoy daily specials, a Full Nelson (or maybe something from the cocktail menu), food and great company at Citizen Cider's Pine Street location Tasting Room in Burlington Vermont. 100% locally sourced apples is a respectable but at the end of the day it's all about meeting the simple goal of bringing cider to the people.
