Vermont Business Magazine Runamok Maple, a Fairfax, Vermont-based producer of pure, barrel-aged, infused, and smoked organic maple syrups, has teamed up with fellow Burlington, Vermont-based brand Citizen Cider to once again release Tree Tapper, a maple-based hard cider that features Runamok Maple syrup as its main ingredient.

At 6.9%, it’s the perfect cider to share among friends, enjoy after a long day of tapping trees, or following a day on the ski slopes.

In celebration of the release, Runamok Maple’s signature Sugarmaker’s Cut maple syrup and Citizen Cider’s Tree Tapper hard cider will available together at specialty grocers and retailers throughout the New England region and Tri-State Area. Tree Tapper will also be available in 12-ounce cans, as well as on draft, at participating restaurants/bars (use this locator) and at Citizen Cider’s tasting room in Burlington.
