**In an effort to keep my blog as local as possible, I'm cutting back on some of the news stuff to keep it all Treasure Coast and Florida centric.**
New Brews and Taproom hours expanded AGAIN!!
Now you can hit us up for growler fills and pints of your favorite Cigar City beers right from the source 7 days a week! Starting this Sunday we will be open on Sundays from 11am-9pm. This is great in all sorts of ways, including a place to fill your growlers up on the way to tailgate before the Buc's game and a killer after party spot!
Also, we WILL be open on Labor Day, Monday September 6th from 11am-9pm so if you're off and looking for something to do come by and see us!
This week's new brews in the tasting room are Puppy's Breath Porter and Tocobaga Ale. Both of these beauties will be draft only so they only way to enjoy will be by the pints or growlers. They will be going out into the Florida market soon so look for them at your favorite spot!
Puppy's Breath Porter is a rich, malt forward robust porter weighing in about 8% abv. This was a beer that had quite a buzz about it from those who tried it during the pilot phase during construction. Once those of us who weren't lucky enough to try it then got a taste we knew why!
Tocobaga Ale is a deep colored amber ale , with hop flavor and aromas dominating and a subtle caramel malt sweetness to balance in the finish. It's coming in at 7.4% abv. and is quickly becoming a favorite quaff of the brewery staff. This recipe was dreamed up by Tim Ogden our brewer who used to moonlight in the tasting room.
Jose' Marti' American Porter hit the taps in the tasting room last week and is now available for pints and growlers, it is also available in 12 oz. 6 packs in the tasting room and will be coming to retailers near you soon!
Good Gourd will be on tap starting this Monday (September 6th) we are very excited for this to be on tap, we're sure you'll love it!
The following Monday (September 14th) Pumpernickel Rye Porter will be on tap, this one was brewed exclusively for Datz' Deli.. Try it there first, it will go on tap on the 9th of September with a HUGE release party planned! It will only be available at Datz' and here in the tasting room so be sure to try it at one or why not both spots!
Tickets for our upcoming event on September 25th Fruit In The Room are selling briskly, be sure to get yours today if you are planning on coming and have not yet gotten them as they are limited. To make it easy for people on the other side of the bay area we have a few ticket venues set up in Pinellas county at Oldsmar Taphouse, Dunedin House of Beers, and Willard's Taphouse if you live over that way, stop in and have a beer or two and grab your tickets there, it's going to be a very fun evening!
