About Newtopia

We’re Redefining American Cider

Come and Enjoy

REPUBLIC OF NEWTOPIA

More a state of mind than a place, this palate-driven republic is one without borders. Inspired by the plant hunters of the Victorian era, we scour the globe for exotic botanicals to craft irresistible cider.

The space features ciders that can be enjoyed at the bar or at the cyder garden patio. There is also the option of taking ciders home in a unique Newtopia Cyder growler. Featured throughout the taproom is 100-year old reclaimed eucalyptus wood that survived the 2003 Cedar Fire, where Scripps Ranch residents had to be evacuated.
