I discovered this gem in CH shortly after it opened in Sep 2013. I have gone back numerous times and recently discovered their wide array of music nights. Besides the good vibes, the food and good ciders on tap have been the main reasons for going back.

A gastropub with just ciders on tap?! Why don't they have these back home? I'd be a loyal patron. Capitol Cider has some amazing ciders on tap. I tried the d's Wicked Baked Apple cider and it rocked my world. I want some of it now. It tastes like drinking unfiltered fresh apple cider and that's really amazing. The food we ordered was just ok. I ordered a green salad and we shared the cheese plate. They are GLUTEN-FREE! Service was great and the place was poppin' on a Saturday night. Great place if you're a fan of alcoholic cider.

Beautiful bar with some beautiful bartenders and beautiful craft beer selections. Highly recommend tasting each and every one. Tasting the beer wouldn't be bad either

While the atmosphere is completely different whether you are upstairs (dining out) or downstairs (small bar/pub watering hole), the quality of food and drink is unparalleled. Serving staff varies in their knowledge on the drinks available for purchase and friendliness with the customer base which is my main reason for lack of a five star rating.

For what it is, a gluten-free cider bar/restaurant, it does indeed do. I personally am not worried about being gluten free, but I was super excited about the idea of a "Cider Bar". I wanted to try ciders I've never had before. I wanted to fruity, tart, berry'y, or whatever other styles that I had not heard of. I was hoping to be educated about this world I knew not much of. It's for this reason, I was left with a "meh" feeling. I also made the mistake of going here on a Friday, so your experience may vary, but the bartenders didn't seem to be very knowledgable of the styles. There was an impressive amount of ciders to choose from (11?) but they were kinda pricey considering they were on tap, and in fact most of the can or bottles were cheaper. Of the four new (to me) ciders I tried, I didn't find one that made me think "Oh man, I'm so glad I came here for this". As I sat at the bar, I couldn't help but notice that their booze collection was much larger than the cider and beer combined. Also, I noticed that most people were in fact ordering cocktails with said booze. To be honest, it really bummed me out. If it was a slower non-friday, and my friends reeaaally wanted Cider, I might be tempted to go back and give it another shot. But in all honesty, I'd probably head to the World Of Beer down the street. I've already and better ciders there.
