Woodchuck Cider Announces Three Big Events: Join The Fun This Summer!
Summer has finally arrived! With all this warm weather and sunshine, there are plenty of exciting and fun things to do, to pass the time. I don’t know about you, but the thought of a cold, hard cider on a hot summer day sure does sound refreshing! Woodchuck Cider, located in beautiful Middlebury, Vermont, has announced three big events happening over the summer, and we want you to be a part of the action. So mark your calendars for some Summer festivities taking place in June, July and August, all happening at the Woodchuck Cider House!
First up, on Saturday, June 27th it’s the Cider House Block Party! From 11-5pm, enjoy this unique outdoor event featuring fun games, like corn hole and kan jam (which is a flying disc game, played with a flying disc and two cans which you deflect the disc). This festive event will also feature a variety of food trucks for you to enjoy, as well as live music from Aaron Flinn, who will entertain you with elements of folk, indie rock and classic country combined with powerful vocals, poetic lyrics and finger-picking guitar. And don’t forget about the cider! Woodchuck will be offering a wide selection of their tasty ciders as well as a special Firkin cask!
On Thursday, July 23rd, join the Woodchuck Summer Cider Dinner from 7-9pm. This delicious dinner will be held outside underneath a special tent set-up that will offer its guests a $50 all-inclusive, 5 course pairing menu. The courses are as follows:
- 1st Course: Stuffed Pappadew Peppers with Blue Ledge Farm Lake’s Edge Goat Cheese – Pairing: Granny Smith Cider
