Spring is Springing!


Spring is Springing!

The bloom is an important time for us here at Citizen Cider, obvi, we are all about the apples. We are out planting baby trees, we are out watching the bee release, basically any excuse to get out of the office and into these beautiful orchards, we’ll take it. When we started talking about this year’s bloom we realized our orchard story was out of date. We work with all of these incredible orchards in NY and VT all year round and of course WE know all about it, but do the Citizens?

Spring means B-Cider!


Spring means B-Cider!

With the changing of the seasons it’s time to switch up the styles of ciders. With the spring comes the blossoms and with that comes the need for bees! The BEEEEESSSS! So, we’re releasing B-Cider as the perfect cider to pair with these spring days.

What’s Up with Wit’s Up?


What’s Up with Wit’s Up?

What’s up with that yellow can? Wit’s Up contains zero sugars and zero sulfites, making its profile very crisp and easy to drink. We say, “drinks like an ale”, because we use a Belgian-style, saison yeast in the cider making process. It also undergoes a malolactic fermentation to create a balanced, non-acidic cider with a softer mouthfeel. Could this be the perfect cider… we think so.

Introducing Elsewhere.

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.

Northern Spy is back! …Again.


Northern Spy is back! …Again.

2015 was an exceptional year for Northern Spy apples in the Northeast, a bumper crop if you will! In agriculture, a bumper crop is a crop that has yielded an unusually productive harvest. Because of this we have extended the release of our only single-varietal cider, Northern Spy.

Did you know about the Citizen Cellar?


Did you know about the Citizen Cellar?

The Citizen Cellar ciders are limited batches that dabble in experimental fermentation conditions and co-mingling unique ingredients. This allow us to explore the potential that exists in ciders that use real fruit, never from concentrate, and local ingredients such as hops, herbs, and other small fruits.
