Fx3 was opened three years ago by Kevin Shufelt and Joe McCrudden.

EXPANDING

•  Citizen Cider will begin work in two weeks on an expansion to its business that will bring a portion of  its hard-cider production to a second site in Burlington, VT, according to Seven Days. Cofounder Justin Heilenbach told the publication the cidery, which has a production facility and taproom on Pine Street, will move its apple-pressing operation from Middlebury to 180 Flynn Avenue in Burlington. Currently,  apples are pressed in Middlebury and transported to Burlington in a tanker truck filled with apple cider.
