Anthem Cider is what baby applets dream of becoming: tart, boozy, and so refreshingly fruity you can substitute it for a salad. The Oregon-based company has a few great variations on their local-fruit cider (Anthem Pear and Anthem Cherry), but the breakaway star is Anthem Hops, which is dry hopped over three weeks for a lagerish finish. Capitol Hill’s new Capitol Cider bar has both Cherry and Hops on tap. Try them and feel free to toast me for having the best taste ever. (Capitol Cider, 818 E Pike St,, 4 pm–2 am, $5, 21+)
