Graft Cider

Cloud City

CLOUD CITY


STYLE I What's a dreamsicle cider you ask? Ever had a milkshake inspired beer? We pitch lactose into our cider to build mouth feel, body and to give it a creamy dreamsicle flavor profile. We then pair with unique fruits and hop varieties that compliment one another.

NUTRITION I Lactose intolerant? We only add 1-2 grams of lactose per can of cider but ultimately we leave the decision up to you.

STORY I Cloud City is the crowning jewel of all the districts. While Cloud City itself is of immense size and depth, we take each month to learn more about secondary cities and districts. From mining zones, to agriculture, to pure leisure, we hope to share all that we know about this mysterious world....

Following the glowing pulses of fireflies, Nomad & Dog are led to the Emerald District.

Music fills the air at night as the troupe tell the stories of old through song....lutes, harps and dobros paint symphonic paintings until dawn breaks.
