Grand Illusion is quickly becoming known for our unique menu and varieties of cider we have on tap here. Naturally, our customers and even our employees have started pairing the two. A popular combo would be Sir Charles Hard Cider’s “Deep Blueberry Sea” with our BBQ Chicken Flatbread pizza. Our BBQ Chicken flatbread is just simply amazing. Full of flavor. Starting with the bourbon barbecue sauce that

has that perfect spicy to sweet ratio, then topped with chicken, sweet peppers, mozzarella cheese and then a whisper of fresh cilantro on top. Deep Blueberry Sea is a medium dry cider that uses regionally grown apples, blueberries and champagne yeast. It is classified as medium dry but has the perfect amount of sweetness to it.

If you are planning your first visit or third or fourth or even fifth visit to Grand Illusion, we highly recommend this combo. It is absolutely impeccable. Between the barbecue sauce with the mildness of the cheese and slight zing from the cilantro mixed the semi sweetness of the blueberries and apples in the cider, WOWZA. Your taste buds are in for quite the wild and tasty ride.
