Cider is a primarily player made alcoholic drink which players can make via brewing with level 14 Cooking. A complete batch of cider grants 182 experience points. As brewing takes several days, players can also obtain this item at the underground pub: Esoterican Arms under the Miscellania castle, which requires partial completion of Royal Trouble to access.
It can also be purchased from the Grand Exchange. When drunk, Cider heals 140 life points, and gives a temporary boost to the players Farming level by 1, at the price of lowering both Attack and Strength by 2, similar to all other brews in RuneScape.

Other uses[edit | edit source]
Five glasses of Cider are required for the easy Seers' Village achievement Happy Hour; which can be a problem for players who haven't started Royal Trouble, playing Ironman Mode or have no friends/clanmates willing to help, and if they aren't buying on the Grand Exchange. They will need to either brew a batch or launch their offer on the exchange and wait for it to complete.
It is one of the older items in the game that gives a farming boost of 1. Players can use this item to start valuable fruit trees or other crops that they are just under the level for, saving a lot of time and effort. This item can also be used as a boost to meet some quest requirements. However a garden pie will boost farming by 3, this is made using the Cooking skill. Many newer items will also give a temporary boost.
