The Second installment of ANXO's Cider Club residency at Colony Club is November 13. From 5:30 p.m. to midnight, ANXO will be offering their most ambitious cider list yet with more than 30 ciders and perries available by the glass. Collaboration #1 will be available as will a new array of hot and cold a la carte pintxos (Basque-inspired small bites) from Executive Chef Brad Walker and Chef Alex Vallcorba. 

Each Cider Club features an educational component, and this time Beverage Director Tim Prendergast will host a tasting of local heirloom apple varietals provided by Glaize Apples from Winchester, VA. Head to Colony Club’s second floor at 5:45 p.m. to learn why some apples are great for making cider and others are best eaten fresh. This seminar is free but space is limited, so arriving early is encouraged.

Colony & ANXO Monthly Cider Club 1

Friday, October 23, 5:45pm – 2am

ANXO, DC's first cidery and pintxos bar opening in Truxton Circle in early 2016, will follow up its extremely successful ANXO Sighting at Colony Club with a monthly cider club series, continuing through the end of 2015. These will be the fifth, sixth and seventh events in the ANXO Sighting series, and a bar environment gives DC diners and imbibers a preview of what to expect from ANXO's regular nightly service once it's open. 

The first edition will kick off with an apple pressing demonstration by Beverage Director Tim Prendergast on the Colony Club patio. Guests will learn how to crush, press and ferment apples at home using hobby equipment. Each Cider Club will have a free cider class component beginning just before the main bar event. Those who attend all three classes will come away with free ANXO merch. 

Inside, ANXO Sighting will share space behind the Colony Club bar and will feature 20+ fine ciders and perries available by the glass, including ANXO’s first collaborative cider with Millstone Cellars. Guests will enjoy an expanded selection of hot and cold pintxos from Chefs Brad Walker and Alex Vallcorba that will be available a la carte until midnight.

Those looking for the real Basque experience can head to the patio for full bottles of Basque and Asturian cider and learn how to pour like the Basques using ANXO’s new escanciadors. These tools are perfect for learning to pour from an impressive height, which is not only the best way to carbonate and enhance your beverage, but is also, simply put, fun.
