Big news from ANXO:
“Exciting news from ANXO Cider! The brand that has been incubating within the ANXO restaurants is finally getting its own home! “ANXO Logistics,” has signed a lease at 5419 1st St NW, just around the corner from Jackie Lee’s, and has purchased a state of the art counter-pressure Codi canning line. Ten canned ciders will be released in 2019 and will all be, as always, “apples only,” glutenfree, and completely dry (all fermentable sugars removed through fermentation). Half the products will be sourced entirely with apples from farmers within 200 miles of DC, while the other half will feature famous cider apples grown beyond this region. Florida Avenue and Kennedy Street locations will continue to produce cider for the pubs, which have always been dedicated to hospitality in the Truxton Circle and Brightwood Park neighborhoods.
