Woodchuck Cider Starts Building New $30 Mil Facility [PIC]

Woodchuck Hard Cider has commenced construction on a new state-of-the-art cidery in Middlebury, Vermont. The new location is about a mile from the current spot, and will provide 100,000 square feet of production, warehouse, and office space.

“This is a new chapter for Woodchuck,” said President and CEO Bret Williams.  “Hard cider in the United States is growing in popularity and this new cidery represents a brick and mortar commitment to continue to grow the cider category from Vermont.  It’s an exciting step forward at this crucial time in our history.”

The cost of the location is in the neighborhood of $30 million, to be completed the Spring of 2014.  The 62,000 square foot current facility will remain online.
