Washington D.C. The Cyder Market hard cider information for cider makers and drinkers in Washington DC.
ANXO Cider- aims to reinvigorate interest in traditional cider, one of the Mid-Atlantic’s oldest and most historically important products. We will ferment a limited amount of cider on-site in our 660-gallon Barolo wine cask, eventually supplemented at our upcoming production facility on Kennedy St. NW. As part of our mission to explore cider from around the world, ANXO will collaborate with renowned cidermakers from historic cider regions to produce traditional ciders of quality and distinction. ANXO Cider has purchased a 25 hectoliter (660 gallon) Barolo cask, which will sit on the main floor of the bar and restaurant, to ferment most of its juice. They will produce a tart, dry signature cider that will be reminiscent of that from the Basque country. Smaller barrels will ferment juice from single apple varieties and other fruits, and a limited number of blends in 750 mL bottles will be released throughout the year.

Capitol Cider House- It’s making a comeback. Cider is the original American beverage of choice, but it fell out of favor during Prohibition. We’re joining the national movement to reclaim cider for the States, and what better place to make our mark on Americana culture than in good ole Washington, DC? Our home grown ciders start in local orchards. We choose cider apples known for complex flavors. Every production run is different. We grab what’s growing well and will taste great in your cup!
Washington D.C.- formally the District of Columbia and commonly referred to as Washington, "the District", or simply D.C., is the capital of the United States. The signing of the Residence Act on July 16, 1790, approved the creation of a capital district located along the Potomac River on the country's East Coast. The U.S. Constitution provided for a federal district under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Congress and the District is therefore not a part of any U.S. state. The states of Maryland and Virginia each donated land to form the federal district, which included the pre-existing settlements of Georgetown and Alexandria. Named in honor of George Washington, the City of Washington was founded in 1791 to serve as the new national capital. In 1846, Congress returned the land originally ceded by Virginia; in 1871, it created a single municipal government for the remaining portion of the District. Washington, D.C., had an estimated population of 658,893 in 2014, the 23rd-most populous city in the United States. While there are not many apple orchards in Washington D.C., there are now 3 dedicated cider makers and cider pubs.
|CIDRE BLANC- Made from 100% Goldrush apples from Winchester, VA and fermented with Sauvignon Blanc yeast in stainless steel. Cidre Blanc is 6.9% abv with bright acidity that fades into juicy peach and apricot notes with hints of lemon that are balanced by subtle tannins.||SIDRA NATURAL- Sidra Natural is produced to resemble the old-world, rustic ciders of Spain’s Basque Country, and Asturias. This cider is a blend of juice from Spanish Basque apples and local heirloom varieties from Pennsylvania and Virginia. The only cider fermented in the original Florida Ave. ANXO Cidery & Pintxos Bar is dry, tart, and funky. Pour it from height and enjoy!||HAPPY TREES- Apples from happy little trees are sourced for their uncommon character and pressed into juice before being racked into our massive oak casks without pasteurization or the addition of commercial yeasts or nutrients. Yeast living on the skins of the apples spontaneously ferments the juice into a happy accident that we bring into this world one batch at a time. Visit anxodc.com to discover which happy trees are in this batch!|
|ROJO- Thanks to our good West-Coast friends at Snowdrift Cider Company we are able to create an annual special cider made entirely from red-fleshed apple varieties. Each year 1000 gallons of un-fermented red-fleshed apple juice will make its way across the country and into our tanks on Kennedy St. These red-fleshed apples produce a gorgeous red-hued cider with an incredible acidity without any volatility. Delightfully puckering notes of green strawberry, gooseberry, and watermelon rind give way to a balancing level of tannin.||NATIONAL COLONIAL FARM HERITAGE CIDER- Nationaol Colonial Farm is dedicated to preserving the natural and cultural heritage of the Piscataway Park region in Accokeek, MD. A colonial era cider orchard exists on the farm, but only five magnificent Hewe’s Crabs remain. A tiny quantity of them went into this cider, but ANXO will donate $1 per bottle towards replanting the orchard so that each vintage can showcase more and more of the farm’s historic fruit.||ROSÉ- ANXO Rosé- is a blend our our flagship cider, Cidre Blanc with rare red-fleshed apple juice from our friends at Snowdrift. This cider has a high, yet balanced acidity that showcases fruity notes of strawberry, watermelon and kiwi. Not as tart as it's component, ANXO Rojo, Rosé is extremely drinkable while still displaying delicate complexities. |
Supreme Core Craft Cider- Founders Will Sullivan and Kyle Crosby had a problem: They loved West Coast style craft ciders, but couldn’t find any in Washington, DC. So, they decided to do it themselves. With a shared vision of bringing full-bodied, well-balanced ciders – with craft beer sensibilities – to the DMV, Will and Kyle started making journeys out to local orchards. After a lot of picking, crushing, blending and tasting (the best part…), they were finally ready to share their creations! We start by selecting the finest apples from the foothills of Appalachia…and end up with thousands of gallons of fresh apple juice. Local partnership and process integrity are core to our values. We don’t “source juice” from far and wide. We work with local farmers throughout the growing season to secure only the best apples for our ciders. Those apples are picked, crushed and pressed by family farms so we can bring you the highest-quality product. We take great pride in our work, and we believe it’s important (not to mention fun!) to be personally involved every step of the way.
