Grand Illusion is a cidery and wine bar, in a renovated historic building in downtown Carlisle, with 32 taps of Pennsylvania's hard to find craft alcohol and soda selection. Or spice up a cup of coffee from their coffee bar with your choice of 8 liquors, six flavors, and two whipped creams.
Grand Illusion is the first cidery in Pennsylvania to have 100% of its front-of-house staff qualified as cider certified professionals.
