Cigar City Brew News

Cigar City Brewing's Hunahpus Imperial Stout Release Date Set.

Really. If there is one question I get asked more than any other in regards to our beer it is, "When will Hunahpus be released." Hunahpu's Imperial Stout is what we call a Mayan Choclate Imperial Stout and is brewed with Peruvian cacao, Ancho and Pasilla chiles, cinamon and vanilla beans with a nod toward the frothy cacao drink consumed by the ancient Mayans. It's a tasy concotion and as I mentioned I'm asked almost every week when it will be availible for purchase.

Since some crackpots have themselves convinced that the Maya calendar predicts the apocalypse to go down in 2012 (pro tip: it doesn't predict that at all), I've become fond of the smarmy reply, "Hunahpus will be released in early 2013." Hardly anyone ever gets it though. Ahh well, one day the world will lament not having recognized my comedic genius.

But the time has come to be serious and to announce at long last that Hunahpu's Imperial Stout, the reigning Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting 1st Place Winner will be released on March 12th of 2010 @ 7PM about 22 months shy of the end of the world! I can't offer much more information at this time other than to say, stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks and that bottles of Hunahpus will be $20 per 750 ml (25.3 oz) and there will be many rare treats rolled out of the cellar.
