From http://www.citizencider.com/

Companion
Apple trees and tart cherry trees make good companions in the orchard. They bloom and harvest at different times throughout the growing season, which is good for the land and good for the farmer. We figured they might make nice companions in a fermented cider as well. It turned out to be true, which is good for us, and good for you. Be a Good Companion and enjoy this very limited sour cherry cider.

  • Availability: Limited
  • No added sugar, never from concentrate.
  • Apples pressed at Happy Valley Orchard in Middlebury, VT.
  • Finished with fresh sour cherry juice from Monmorency and Balaton sour cherries.
  • Manufactured in Burlington and Middlebury, VT.

 

Stan Up
We gave Stan the task of making us the finest blend of cider possible from the fruit at his orchard. Made with heirloom blends, this year we did something a little different with Stan Up and used only 2015 apples giving this year’s cider a vintage. We aged the cider in our steel tanks for 10 months starting last November, bottled it in late August and then let it bottle condition for another 2 months. And Voila! A year later we present Stan Up – 2015 Crop.

  • Availability: Limited
  • No added sugar, never from concentrate.
  • Apples picked from and pressed at Happy Valley Orchard in Middlebury, VT.
  • Manufactured in Burlington and Middlebury, VT.
  • Pairings: Braised herbed chicken, hard cheese, prosciutto, hummus.
  • ABV: 8.0

 

Northern Spy
Made with Northern Spy apples alone, this single varietal cider is indubitably a showcase of one proud apple. Bright and acidic with a touch of sweetness and loads of character, the Northern Spy is an exceptional addition to your personal reserve.

  • Availability: Limited
  • Juice pressed at Happy Valley Orchard in Middlebury, VT
  • Made with 100% Northern Spy apples from Happy Valley Orchard in Middlebury, VT
  • Manufactured in Burlington & Middlebury, VT
  • Pairings: Champlain Valley Triple cheese, cured ham, artichoke dip.
  • ABV: 6.4
  • 750mL Bottle

 

bRosé
Cider rosé made by three bros right in the great state of Vermont. bRosé is hand crafted by co-fermenting 100% Vermont blueberries and sweet cider pressed at Happy Valley Orchard in Middlebury, Vermont. bRosé is the embodiment of cooperation. Blueberry and apple, summer and fall, farmers and cider makers. Here’s to getting along.

  • Availability: Forever
  • Apples pressed at Happy Valley Orchard in Middlebury, VT.
  • Blueberries from Charlotte Berry Farm in Charlotte, VT.
  • Manufactured in Burlington and Middlebury, VT.
  • Pairings: Lobster, blue cheese, aioli, bouillabaisse, tomato salad
  • ABV: 6.1

 

Introducing Elsewhere

Citizen Cider meets Shelburne Museum:
A collaboration of history and apples.

That’s right, we collab. The good folks at Shelburne Museum contacted us with an idea. “We have feral apple trees on the museum grounds, you guys make cider with apples, let’s join forces.” So, that’s what we did.

Turns out these apple trees are much more special than we even anticipated. Electra Havemeyer Webb, the founder of Shelburne Museum and also an ambitious and well-known collector of Americana, was responsible for the collection of heritage apple trees that reside on the museum grounds.

Wrangle your friends and mosey on over to the Beverage Warehouse for a delicious morning of local beer!

We’re tasting a posse of 6 of their craveable beers, get your dusty bottom over here, partner!

From Stone Corral /  stonecorral.com

Cans:

  • High Noon Kolsch – Malty with a kiss of noble hops and reasonable strength make this a balanced and delicious choice for any occasion. This is a great session beer and with the lower alcohol content you can enjoy a few.
  • Palomino Pale Ale – Amber Ale dry hopped with Amarillo, Sterling and Willamette. Layers of Pilsner, Vienna and wheat malts balance out the assertive hop aromas.
    Trailblazer Our amber lager – This brew won Silver at GIBF last fall.
  • Black Beer– 2014 Gold Medal at the Great International Beer & Cider Festival. A balanced, velvety, German inspired black lager / porter cross. Delicious ice cold, but the malt really stands out at warmer temperatures. Clean layers of dark malt, mocha, caramel and noble hops.

 

Bottles:

  • Stampede double IPA – Meridian, Sterling and Nugget hops showcased against a robust blend of 6 malts. Notes of stone fruit, citrus, honey and resin with a big malt background and assertive hop bitterness. 8.8% ABV
  • Wild Red – Our approachable interpretation of sour ale. Aromas of pear, pie cherry, and graham cracker, slightly tart on the palate with a delightful funk and dry finish. 6% ABV
  • XX Chocolate Maple Porter– Dark, rich, delicious, yet not too heavy. Made with Taft Farm maple and fair-trade Guatemalan cacao nibs from our friends at Blue Bandana Chocolate Maker.
  • Big Belgian Draft – this Belgian-style dark strong ale won gold at GIBF last fall. Flavors of fresh malt and stone fruit mix with just a hint of spiciness from the special yeast strain (no spices added) and a smooth finish that leaves you wanting another sip…
  • Scotch Ale – A strong ale, malty, full bodied with a hint of smokiness. The big brother to Stone Corral Latigo. Pairs nicely with roasted or grilled meats, wild game, grilled smoked salmon, aged cheeses, French onion soup and deli sandwiches. This ale weighs in at 7.25% ABV.
