Cigar City Brew News

Either/Or, Tocobaga Ale, and a food tasting of the Asian Persuasion

Tocobaga Ale is back in the tasting room and on it's way to taps within our distribution area. This 7.2% hoppy, amber ale is quickly becoming a very popular offering where ever it becomes available so try it when you see it! We already have more in the tanks, fermenting away so I am guessing it should be available for a while. In the tasting room we are pouring growlers of it, so if you are close by come and get them filled. For now Tocobaga Ale will be draft only.

The first of our Pilot Series beers, an Imperial Sweet Stout is now on tap in the tasting room. With Marshal Zhukov's tap drying up for the time being this will make a great replacement! Weighing in at around 12%ABV, Ben's not messing around as we can see from his first offering! The result is a smooth full bodied stout, sweet but balanced with flavors of roasted malt and a delicate bitterness. Also coming soon will be a Dark Mild and a Table Saison all brewed right here 45 gallons at a time!

Either and Or were packaged this week, these black beauties will be released next week in the tasting room and should be in retail establishments soon after. Starting next Friday, you can purchase 12 oz.bottles of both and for this very special release we will have them on draft for you to try in the tasting room side by side. Which will be your favorite? Only one way to find out! Draft is going to be very limited for this release so be sure to stop by if you can!

Tickets are now available for the Asian Persuasion food tasting which will be here at the brewery on December 4th from 7-10pm. Presented by Loko Cuisine, the tasting will feature 5 courses of food engineered to pair delightfully with our ales.The price is $20 per person, and your first beer is included. Tickets are available online through Loko Cuisine's website only, so click here to get yours today! Here is a look at the menu:

With the holiday season coming up, we'd like to remind you that nothing compliments (and helps to get you through) your gatherings with friends and family better than a few pints.. or more. Kegs of Jai-Alai IPA and Maduro Brown Ale are available for sale during the tasting room hours and can also be ordered in advance for your events! They are available in 5 gallon and 50 liter (13.2) gallons sizes. If that is too much you can always come and fill up those growlers! We now have the 1 gallon size back in stock, ready to be filled.

Moving up in the world, we now have a selection of specialty sodas available in the tasting room for the designated driver, pregnant women who get dragged here by their beer crazed spouses, and Charlie Sheen since supposedly he's on the wagon again! All are made with natural ingredients, do not contain high fructose corn syrup, and taste drastically more fantastic than that diet whatever you are drinking now! Of course you are here for the beer, but just in case you're here and want something else give them a try!
