The apple beverage—sparkling, still, dry, or fruity—is having a moment.
Keep an Eye Out for . . .
DC’s first cider bar, Anxo Cidery & Pintxos Bar (300 Florida Ave., NW) is set to debut in Truxton Circle this February. The ambitious venture—its name is pronounced “ahn-cho”—comes from industry vets Sam Fitz (Meridian Pint) and Tim Prendergast (Boundary Road), both certified cicerones who discovered Basque cider through their passion for sour beer. Spanish offerings will be the focus of the place, though it will also pour local varieties, including Anxo’s own. A production facility is slated for next fall.
