That time I drank Cider and enjoyed some! Citizen Cider in Burlington, VT

Cider Alert!!! Cider Alert!!! For all of you that ask me about Cider Citizen Cider in VT is a must try...

We all know my true love is beer but being an open-minded person I love to experiment and continue my quest to find a cider I could have more than one of.

Quest is now complete!

That morning was off to a great start as I fulfilled my other quest for a case of Heady Topper after 2 hours in line and now the day was about to get better...

What better place to explore on a hot sunny day then Citizen Cider in Burlington VT with over 9 ciders on tap and since it was a Thursday it was also Hot Dog & a Cider Can day for $5!!!

Vermont is a great area, like us in Ontario, for fresh apples and that is what goes into these unique variety of ciders 100% locally sourced apples.

Justin, Bryan and Kris founded Citizen Cider in 2010 and by the end of 2013, a location had been selected and they broke ground early in 2014 on the new location at 316 Pine St in Burlington, VT.

“We’re Citizen Cider because we wanted to create ciders for the people.”

As we stepped inside we were greeted by Lars and he pleasantly pulled up a stool with us at the tasting room bar and joined us for lunch, some cider and some great conversation.

The tasting room is a beauty spot to sit with opening garage doors on a nice day and a stage that rocks out with bands on certain nights. The rustic long wood picnic type tables allowed for great conversation flow and chance to chat with new friends.
