Woodchuck Cider House — Watch out, Willy Wonka — and Ben and Jerry. The flavor combos at Middlebury’s Woodchuck Hard Cider are every bit as wacky and wonderfully named. From Lazy Hazy Lemon Crazy — a tart cider shandy — to Oopsy Daisy — infused with chamomile and honey — these ciders are best sipped at Woodchuck headquarters. For free. That’s right, “It’s like Napa in the ’70s,” one TripAdvisor reviewer raves of the four complimentary samples, each several ounces. For a lightweight like me, that’s a buzz. For the rest of you, it’s at least a good start. Your wallet — and your taste buds — will thank you.
