Downtown Carlisle is now home to a brand new cidery and wine bar. Grand Illusion Hard Cider opened February 23rd at 26 W. High Street. They feature 24 local Pennsylvania craft ciders, beers and sodas on draft.
Grand Illusion's variety of ciders and wine options are listed with a great rating system right on the menu that shows you how sweet or dry it is. You can also order a flight to find your new favorite. For those under 21, they also have unique draft sodas including blueberry birch and grape smoothie, to name a couple.
They also offer a small menu including appetizers, flatbreads, salads and a pretzel flight. The inside is very cozy with two floors, exposed brick, purple walls and top hat lights to fit in with the magic theme.
This is also exciting news for Cumberland Valley Beer Trail followers. The passport currently includes a "coming soon" spot for Grand Illusion and you can now receive a sticker from this location to help work towards prizes. Learn more about the Beer Trail here.
