Cigar City brew news

Last Friday we bottled Capricho Oscuro #2. It should be ready in about two weeks. Batch #2 is a barrel aged blend of Bolita, Big Sound and 110K+OT Batch #2. Instead of having an official release party for CO #2 we plan to just make it available at the brewery during normal business hours with a per person limit. There are about 450 bottles of batch #2.

Bolita Double Nut Brown Ale will be bottled tomorrow. Bolita has been released on draft before and the barrel aged version has been released in bottles, but this is the first time out for the bottled version of the regular Bolita. We are expecting around a 100 case yield of 12X750ml bottles. The next bottled brew will be Improvicasion Oatmeal Rye India-style Brown Ale.

After 4 months in business, CCB is expanding, both in the brewery and in distribution. We will be adding a 30 bbl fermenter and brite tank and another 15 bbl brite tank. This will expand our production capacity a great deal. We are also planning to move down to cover South Florida, as I had previously mentioned, and will be sending a limited amount of beer to New York and Denmark in the coming months. Hopefully as we add tanks we'll also be able to add more east coast states.
