Hunapuh will not be the only beer sought at Cigar City Brewing this weekend

08 Mar

CigarCityBrewingCigar City Brewing has become something of a legend in Florida and around the country. This past October at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colo. the Tampa brewery attracted long lines of rabid fans eager to taste their beers. This weekend, throngs of fans, even more rabid than those in Denver, will be camped out at the brewery’s gates. But, the masses this weekend will be seeking something specific; Cigar City’s Hunapuh’s Imperial Stout. This potent brew is a concoction of Cacao Nibs, Madagascar Vanilla Beans, Ancho Chilis, Pasilla Chilis and Cinnamon.

The folks at Cigar City aren’t resting on their laurels by just offering their much-sought-after annual release, though. No, these mad geniuses also plan to have dozens of other brews available to what will likely be a huge crowd of beer lovers congregated to enjoy great beer and great times.

The list, published earlier this week, contains beers from Cigar City and dozens of other noteworthy breweries. Anyone that leaves this celebration without having tasted at least one amazing brew is not trying very hard. The semi-complete list follows.
