From ANXO:

“To our ANXO Family, Friends and Neighbors,

We know that this is an extremely difficult time for so many. At ANXO, we made the difficult decision to close our @anxotruxton and @anxobrightwood locations for the safety of our customers and employees. With a heavy heart, we had to make the hardest decision we’ve ever faced: laying off most of our employees.

But ANXO is still here. We are resilient. We are creative. We are as committed as ever to our family of employees and to our wonderful community. But our ANXO family needs your help as we transition our business to pickup, delivery, and online sales. If you have the means to support ANXO during this time, here are some ways you can help: Read More


3930 Georgia Ave, NW at Shepherd

Capitol Cider House is nearly here! From their website:

“At Capitol Cider House, we do cider right. No added chemicals or preservatives. Only showcasing producers within 200 miles of the Capitol building. Always gluten free. Not too sweet. More like a fine wine than a popsicle.

All our goods are sourced from within 200 miles of the US Capitol Building. We have a few of our own concoctions and many ciders from Mid-Atlantic producers that are otherwise hard to find in DC. Our menu is always changing, but we’re always keeping it local.

We invite you to visit our brand new production space and tasting room at 3930 Georgia Avenue. Chill out on our patio, play a round of shuffleboard and enjoy a snack while sampling a flight of regional ciders. Kids are welcome, and friendly dogs can hang out in our outside space.”

They should be open in the next week or so but I’ll be updating when I get an exact opening date. A few other things before checking out all the photos of the amazing space. A big patio is coming. There will be food – starting with Empanadas and Rotis (and hot dogs for the kids) from food trucks. There will be 10 ciders on tap, 1 mead, 1 beer plus cans, bottles, wine and some cocktails. Now check out the amazing space:

Many more photos after the jump. Read More

From a press release:

“Drink the District, a local food- and beverage-inspired event company, announced today they will host this year’s Rock the Core Cider Festival on the future site of MRP Realty’s (MRP) planned Edgewood mixed-use development Bryant Street, at 680 Rhode Island Ave in Northeast Washington, D.C. The two-day, annual cider-tasting event will be held on Friday, October 27, and Saturday, October 28.

“Our annual event brings together cider-lovers of all backgrounds to commence the holiday season over a shared fall tradition,” said Steuart Martens, Founder and CEO, Drink the District. “The festival is always held in a growing, attractive Metro-accessible area to expose residents to a new part of the city. We think attendees will really enjoy the Edgewood neighborhood, with Metro’s Red Line station at Rhode Island Avenue less than a five-minute walk from the festival grounds.”

Uniting the District’s cider lovers and fall enthusiasts, Rock the Core will feature a curated selection of regional cideries and breweries. The pop-up festival will offer over 100+ ciders, craft beers and wines onsite with three 3-hour sessions of unlimited samples. While sipping and exploring fall’s best variety of apple flavors, attendants will be treated to top D.C.-based food trucks, a local artisan market, live entertainment, lawn games and Ford’s Built Ford Tough Toughest Tailgate. Additionally, there will be a retail store location on-site so attendees can purchase the beverages they’ve tasted to take home. Read More

From a press release:

Supreme Core Craft Cider, Washington, DC’s newest cidery, announces the release of its Micawber unfiltered dry cider. Micawber, Supreme Core’s first release, is an unfiltered cider made with 100% Virginia apples and an English ale yeast to provide a clean, unique drinking experience. Carefully selected blends of regional apples – locally pressed and fermented in Washington, DC with craft beer sensibilities in mind – is the hallmark of Supreme Core’s ciders. Co-founders Will Sullivan and Kyle Crosby plan to open their facility and tasting room in the Arboretum neighborhood later this fall, but for now, Micawber will be available at Glen’s Garden Market’s Dupont Circle and Shaw locations beginning September 10.
