Vermont has long been known as a destination for it's craft beers and microbreweries. However, hard cider has been on the rise in an up and coming sweep across Vermont. Woodchuck Cider is leading this revolution and has my personal seal of approval for the best cider in Vermont.
A popular adult beverage corridor has been accumulating in the Middlebury area and is deemed the Midd Trail (short for Middlebury Trail). This corridor is now home to five local brewers who will all be participating in the Spring Meltdown at Woodchuck Cidery this Saturday from noon til 5.
This free event will feature samples from Woodchuck Cider, Lincoln Peak Winery, Otter Creek Brewing, Drop-in Brewing and Appalachian Gap Distillery. Mach's Brick Oven Pizza will also be on hand for the event.
The event will be in a farmer's market style atmosphere with several booths for sampling products as well as purchasing related items such as beer mugs, wine glasses, t-shirts and other items.
Tour the cidery while you visit. Woodchuck offers twenty five ciders with twenty on tap. You may select to try any of the twenty ciders with the first four samples being free and each four ounce sample after that being just $1. There will be a punch card to complete as you move from table to table. Fill your punch card and you will qualify for a drawing to win one of three gift baskets.
