Missing Us? Here are a few incider tips on how to get your Citizen Cider fix

let’s face it, we all deserve a cider.

COVID-19 is taking the world by storm and leaving many Citizens stuck at home indefinitely. Due to the current circumstances Citizen Cider and restaurants all over Vermont are closed. We encourage the citizens to buy locally if possible! Small businesses will suffer if we don’t come together and support our communities. Not sure where you can buy our cider locally? Check our Cider Locator to see where you can pick up your favorite cider and check out the items below for some Citizen Staples you can make at home to keep the stir crazy away.
