Date: March 12th
Time: festivities start at noon and run until midnight
Place: Cigar City Brewing, of course!
With the popularity of this yearly release which also happens to be one of our very favorite products we decided to make it a day long party this year! Enjoy music from local artists, a diverse mix of food, and of course a lot of great beer thrown in the mix. The party will spill out into the parking lot, and we are getting plans underway to raise a festival tent and assemble multiple bars with a larger variety of beers than was available last year!
We will be updating the blog with tap lists and food vendors as we get everything more concrete and ready to go. Expect an eclectic array of tastes and flavors from near and far, we've already been collecting beers for this occasion and they're still coming.
Bottles of Hunahpu Mayan Chocolate Imperial Stout will go on sale at 6pm, wristbands will be handed out to the first 750 people who want to be assured their bottles beginning at noon. There will be roughly 3000 bottles for this year's release and the limit will be 4 bottles per person initially with surplus being sold at no limit after everyone who wants to purchase initially has been able to do so.
Music will include Have Gun WIll Travel, Worldwide Zoo, and more to be announced!
Since we know there will be a lot of people coming from far away, we have set up a block of rooms at the Hilton very close by; about a 10 minute walk, 2 minute drive and there is a shuttle as well we may be able to take over at some point if they let us.

We should have a link by next week which we will post that will take you directly to the reservations page from our site/blog but if you would like to get your reservation in before then you can call the hotel and give them the booking code "CCB311".
More info to come as we progress, it's getting exciting for us as we prepare. We hope to see everyone here for it!
