Why Cider?

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?

Why Capitol Cider House?

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.

Locally sourced

Libations

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.

Our Pommeau

WHAT THE HECK IS POMMEAU?! Pommeau is a traditional French cordial made by blending raw, unfermented cider with an apple-based distillate (eau de vie) - think of it as the apple version of port wine. Best enjoyed as an aperitif or as an extremely versatile mixer, where pommeau can replace and elevate sweet vermouth in classic cocktails like the Manhattan and Negroni.

OUR PROCESS

How It’s Made

Select

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!

Press

Next, we grind our apples into small bits in a process called milling. Then we’re ready to press! One bushel yields about 2.5 gallons of delicious juice.

Ferment

We add yeast and other natural ingredients, like honey or local fruit, to our fresh apple juice. Then it’s time to sit back and let nature take her course. The yeast gets to work, turning those natural sugars into alcohol and CO2.

Package & Pour

Once the cider is ready, we package it up in kegs. It’s ready to enjoy now, or we can wait a few months to develop more flavor. Come have a glass with us and take home a crowler (or two)!

Our Location

Check out our new digs

We invite you to visit our production space and tasting room at 3930 Georgia Avenue. Chill out on our patio, play one of our many board games and enjoy some grub (we have food!!!) while sampling a flight of ciders. Kids are welcome, and friendly dogs can hang out in our outside space.

Our peppy space is also available for private and semi-private events. Email us at [email protected] for more info!
