Are you dreaming of warm summer days? Do you wake up everyday in hopes that your weather app is wrong- that the rain will stop and it will finally be summer? Okay, so we’ve had a few little tastes of summer life. But just when you start to tell yourself that it’s here, that we’ve officially made it to summer time, we get another week of forecasted rain. Like… thank you for giving us all time to binge watch Orange Is the New Black & House of Cards, but we’re ready to get outside!
Whenever the time comes to officially put the umbrellas away, the gang at Citizen Cider wants you to be prepared for an epic Summer of 2017.
So, we’ve created a legendary list of summer activities that you and your favorite Companion can enjoy together.
BBQ-n’ & Picnic Livin’
Whether you’re BBQn’ with your BFFs or picnicking at Oak Ledge, nothing beats grilling up some hot dogs & hamburgers with a crisp, cold Companion Cider. I mean, the can itself has Picnic written all over it, Red & White & everything nice.
Hikes & Bikes
How lucky we are to live in a place that’s so beautiful! Be adventurous – take a hike up Camel’s Hump, or Mt. Philo. Take a bike ride down the Burlington Bike Path. Breathe in the fresh Vermont air and reward yourself after by cracking open a can of Citizen Cider.
Swimming Holes & Cliff Jumping
We’ll say it again, we’re incredibly lucky to live in a state that has so much to offer. Vermont has a plethora of natural swimming holes with fresh crystal clear water. Warren Falls, Bristol Falls or Huntington Gorge (Just to name a few). If you’re brave enough, try jumping off the cliffs or shimmy down a natural water slide. Sunshine & cider make great Companions, (but please drink and swim responsibly).
Camping & Bonfires
Enjoy living off the grid for a night or two. Grab some friends, a couple of 4 packs of cider & unwind. Hang by the fire, bring a guitar and that one friend that loves singing 90’s throwbacks like Third Eye Blind, or 4 Non Blonds. What a Semi-Charmed kind of life.
Concerts & Festivals
Burlington has an amazing music scene. Check out this summer’s concert and festival lineups for the Waterfront or Ben and Jerry’s Concerts on the Green.. and guess what? You can totally get your cider fix at most venues. So get #EXCIDERED.
Fishing & Boating
Picture yourself sitting by the water, sipping on a Companion, waiting to hook a big one! Or spend some time kayaking, canoeing, sailing or straight up boating around Lake Champlain. Don’t have a boat? How about one of those majestic unicorn floaties? Or just have a relaxing beach day at Leddy, or North Beach.
Fortunate to be Porchin’ it
Feeling like you want to low-key relax, but don’t want to waste those precious summer days? Invite some friends over, turn up the Spotify and stoop it! Dogs are always a great addition too. Companions & Companions make perfect Companions.
Lawn games & drinking have always gone hand in hand. Get a little competitive and play some Wiffleball, Cornhole, Volleyball, Horseshoes or Ladder Toss.. Or be a true Vermonter and play some Stump. Good thing most games only require you to use one hand – one has to hold your cider!
The 4th of July is right around the corner! Nothing says summer like fireworks over the lake. Make sure this year you celebrate right. Sip on some Companion & really make those 4th of July selfies pop with our red & white cans. So festive, we know.
Weddings, Birthdays & Labor Day
You know it’s summer when your calendar starts to fill up with (sometimes) exciting events to attend. Don’t come unprepared- it’s hard to get through these things without your Companion by your side. Labor Day seems far away, but sadly, it will sneak up on you.. So say a proper goodbye to your epic, legendary summer! Cheers to you!
