Options abound for drinking locally

Addison County produces many beers, wines and other beverages for those 21-plus By CHRISTY LYNN ADDISON COUNTY — This part of the world has long been called the Land of Milk and Honey, but there’s a lot more going on with beverages locally than just moo-juice — and many of these drinks are for those who are 21 or older. In Addison County alone there are dozens of thirst-quenching, mouth-watering, intoxicating, health-promoting and sweetening beverages for the adult consumer. Addison County has also been called the “adult beverages capital of the nation” and you can see why with so many local options to choose from. Not sure where to start? This “hit list” of Addison County beer, wine, and cider will start you on your way, providing some of the quick facts and compelling reasons to fill your glass with local goods. HEALTH DRINK Aqua Vitea Kombucha: An ancient elixir, kombucha is a fermented beverage made from tea, sugar and water and contains a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast. During fermentation, contents convert into nutritious, vitamin-rich organic acids and probiotics, which provide health benefits that attract people to this functional yet refreshing drink. Aqua Vitea is based in Bristol and was started in Salisbury in 2005 by Jeff Weaber and Katina Martin, a husband-and-wife team committed to sharing healthy habits and local ideals with the community. CIDER: HARD, ICED & OTHERWISE Champlain Orchards: Located in the southwestern Addison County town of Shoreham, Champlain Orchards is a family-owned orchard and organic farm that takes deep pride in producing a wide variety of ecologically grown produce. The classic apple cider and cranberry-apple cider (with cranberries from the Vermont Cranberry Company) are pressed in-house with a restored 90-year-old rack and cloth cider press — a process open for visitors to watch. On the fermented menu are two varieties of Pruner’s Promise hard cider, made from several apple varieties. Pruner’s Promise Ice Cider and Honeycrisp Ice Cider offer a selection of sweet and decadent ice wines made from Champlain Orchards apples. Visits to the farm are welcome, or products can be found all around Addison County and beyond. Citizen Cider: While the cidery is located north of Addison County in the town of Essex, 100 percent of the apples used to make this fine sparkling cider are sourced from Happy Valley Orchards in Middlebury, so we’ll keep this tasty drink on our “hit list.” Citizen Cider was founded in 2011 by three young and enthusiastic local foods aficionados who recognized an opportunity to celebrate the incredible resource of some of the finest apples grown in the country. As a refreshing alternative to beer or wine, drinking sparkling cider can help keep your drinking local. Woodchuck Hard Cider: With more than 22 years of experience in the business of producing hard cider, Woodchuck has had time to refine their process and recipes. They now produce over a dozen varieties of cider, from

their six core styles to their seasonal offerings, private stocks and Farmhouse Select. Cider is an ancient drink that has been popularized in many countries around the world. While they still think and act like a small local operation, in 2007 Woodchuck became the first cidery in America to sell over a million cases of cider. Today, they remain the top distributor across the U.S., and with a 60 percent growth in cider consumption last year across the country they are positioned to grow even more. In October 2012, the Vermont Hard Cider Company LLC was purchased by the multi-national C&C

Group, producer of cider brands in Ireland and the U.K. But the plan for Woodchuck remains firmly rooted right here in Middlebury with a groundbreaking this past spring on a new $30 million, 100,000-square-foot facility off Exchange Street. Windfall Orchards: For those unfamiliar with ice cider, it is made from apples processed through cold fermentation. Traditionally, apples are left on the trees (often to freeze) through much of the winter. Apples are picked below freezing temperatures, pressed and left to cold-ferment for several months. Windfall Orc h a r d ’s rich

Milk is still king of local beverages While there are many choices when it comes to alcoholic beverages in Addison County, milk is still king when it comes to liquid refreshment. Milk production has been a way of life for Vermonters for more than a century. According to the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Addison County hosts 148 dairy farms, which makes it the second largest producer in the state, after Franklin County. Two local dairy producers bottle and sell their own milk — Monument Farms Dairy and Kimball Brook Farm. Monument Farms Dairy in Weybridge is a third-generation family farm owned by the James and Rooney families that provides a vibrant dairy center in Addison County. Monument Farms Dairy boasts a vertical integration system, meaning they grow their own feed, raise their own cattle, process their own milk, and distrib-

ute their own product. They market themselves as the only large-scale dairy operation in Vermont that sells milk exclusively from their own herd. The strong sense of heritage and pride in their work shows with always fresh and local products, keeping their dairy operation strong in the ever-competitive market. Impossible not to mention, Monument Farms chocolate milk has been lauded as the best in Vermont — which means among the best in the world! A new option when it comes to locally bottled milk comes from Ferrisburgh’s Kimball Brook Farm, which is run by Cheryl and J.D. DeVos. Bottling its milk at a plant in Hinesburg, Kimball Brook sells several varieties of certified organic milk. It can be purchased at outlets around the county, and around New England. — Christy Lynn

and indulgent ice cider is made exclusively from apples picked on their small farm in Cornwall. Of the 80 heirloom apple varieties on their three-acre farm, more than 30 find their way into this ice cider. This apple-based iced cider (like a wine) was the winner of the highest distinction at the 2012 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition. WINE Lincoln Peak Vineyard: The Granstrom family began converting their family farm to a vineyard in 2001, after almost 25 years of growing pick-your-own strawberries. The transition was inspired by the introduction of cold-hardy grapes developed by engineers at the University of Minnesota and tested in the northern climates of Quebec, Minnesota and Ontario. Lincoln Peak Vineyard, located just north of Middlebury in New Haven, produces nine varieties of wines, from reds, whites and rosés to ice wine and black currant wine. All of the wines are made with 100 percent Vermont grapes, keeping true to the local spirit of the company. Neshobe River Winery: Located at the scenic Old Mill Inn Bed & Breakfast in Brandon, Neshobe River Winery produces a variety of wines with grapes collected from Vermont as well as California and the Finger Lakes. With eight unique varieties and an ever-intoxicating landscape to admire, visits to Neshobe River Winery will never get old. Otter Valley Winery: Otter Valley Winery began production in 2011, partnering meticulous winemaking practices and talent with a genuine love of the land and support for the Vermont wine community. Located in Brandon at the foot of the Green Mountains, their goal is to make high quality wines that reflect the climate, soil and beauty of the state. Shoreham Winery: Shoreham Winery is a small operation owned and operated by Greg Borah, his wife and three grown children. A quaint example of the small-scale but highquality agriculture practices that are so notorious across Vermont, Shoreham Winery tells the story of one family’s hard work, passion and success with winemaking in Vermont. BEER Otter Creek Brewery: Since 1991 Otter Creek has been brewing award-winning beer in Middlebury, where it has grown into one of the most popular brews across the state of Vermont. With strong roots in community and local sustainability, Otter Creek works with local farmers to source as many local ingredients as possible. A visit to Otter Creek Brewery in Middlebury to watch as Otter Creek, Wolaver’s, and Shed ales are each hand-crafted through a modern and efficient process will provide a glimpse into the complex world of Vermont brew-making. Wolaver’s: As the only 100 percent organic production brewery in the United States, Wolaver’s is truly a one-of-a-kind operation. Started as a satellite brewery in 1997, Wolaver’s set out to establish a market for organic beer, working with farmers producing organic hops, barley and other malts. With six ales and as many local and sustainable ingredients as they can source, Wolaver’s and Otter Creek ales are continuing to break ground and press (See Drink local, Page 23B)

Drink local (Continued from Page 22B) forward to produce brews that keep Vermont on the national “hit list” of beer aficionados. Shed: After a long history of production in an old mill building in Stowe, the Shed Brewery moved production to Middlebury to join Otter Creek and Wolaver’s Organic Ales in 2011. With two unfiltered ales (Mountain Ale and India Pale Ale), options are kept simple, but satisfaction is unwavering with these increasingly popular brews. Drop-In Brewery: With over 30 years of practice in producing craft brews and a lifetime of passion for the subject, Drop-In Brewmaster and co-owner Steve Parkes has helped pave the path for artisan brewers in America. While Drop-In Brewery only opened its doors in 2012, Parkes’ brewing career began in 1982 when he graduated from a Scottish university with a degree in brewing science. Since then, Parkes has traveled across Europe and the U.S., working to establish a culture of craft beers at many well-known breweries. At Drop-In, Parkes works with his wife and coowner Christine McKeever to produce flagship brews that are quickly building a name for themselves on the Vermont beer circuit. The team splits time brewing and teaching their craft to students at the American Brewers Guild Brewing School, which they purchased in 1999 and have been running ever since. Bobcat Brewing: The Bobcat Café and Brewery is a popular locally owned hotspot

for high-quality food and drinks located in the heart of Bristol. With up to a dozen rotating craft brews made on-site by brewmaster Mark Magiera, Bobcat Brewing offers a wide variety of true-to-style ales inspired by beer from around the world. With a passion for innovation and experimentation, Magiera works to continuously push the envelope and excite the tastebuds of any beer connoisseur, while also maintaining a deep respect for the traditions behind each style. As a community supported business, the Bobcat Café and Brewery works to source local ingredients for their food as well as beer, which features Vermontgrown hops, black currants, and other rotating ingredients. Foley Brothers Brewing: A small microbrewery located just south of Middlebury in Brandon, the Foley Brothers Brewery is part of the family-run Neshobe River Winery and Brewing Company. Dan and Patrick Foley began brewing in 2012 with a mis-

sion to create a beer containing all Vermont ingredients. They source locally grown hops, Vermont maple syrup and ginger wheat for their brews and continue to look for other local growers to support their endeavors. As the first brewery in Rutland County, the Foley family has much to celebrate and explore with their passion and motivation to pursue craft beer along with their established wine-making operation. SPIRITS WhistlePig Rye: WhistlePig Rye is 100 percent rye whiskey aged for at least 10 years through a unique double-barrel process. WhistlePig Farm is a certified organic plot in Shoreham hosting cattle, horses, sheep, goats and pigs, as well as

rye, barley, oats and alfalfa. While the rye currently being distilled for use in WhistlePig whiskey is not grown on the farm, WhistlePig’s hopeful owners and crew are working toward the day that they can claim their ingredients are 100 percent grown-inVermont. In the meantime, it has become an award-winning whiskey served in the best high-end establishments across the country! Caledonia Spirits and Winery: With a deeply-rooted tradition of keeping honey bees and a multi-generational tradition of sustainable farming, Caledonia Spirits was born as a family-run business committed to responsibly using the bountiful resources in Vermont while adding value to the work of the people here. While their distillery is located in northeastern Vermont’s Hardwick, Caledonia Spirits & Winery has a location open every Saturday in Ferrisburgh. Spirits include the honey-sweetened Barr Hill Gin and cold fermented Barr Hill Vodka, as well as their acclaimed Elderberry Cordial. They also produce unique mead and wine varieties, including honey-black currant and honey-blueberry wines. Appalachian Gap Distillery: A budding company on the distillery tour in Addison County, Appalachian Gap Distillery has established itself in Middlebury and is on the road to becoming the newest licensed distillery in the area. Stay on top of the scene and you won’t miss the release of their much-anticipated collection of local spirits.
