ALEXANDRIA, VA. - Alexandria, Virginia, resident Tristan Wright was diagnosed with serious soy and gluten allergies four years ago and had to give up beer and whiskey, but had fallen in love with hard cider on a trip to Ireland five years earlier.

That’s when the light bulb went on. Wright decided to pursue the business of making hard cider in his hometown.

Thanks in part to help from the city and state, he is weeks away from opening Lost Boy Cider in a 6,000-square-foot Alexandria warehouse in the Carlyle neighborhood, near the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Wright is investing more than $668,000 on renovations for the warehouse space for the new hard cider production facility, which will also have a tasting room.
