Cigar City beers to hit the high seas

10 Jul

CigarCityBrewingSoon, guests aboard all Florida-based Carnival cruise ships will be able to get a taste of the Sunshine State’s craft beer industry. On July 13, the cruise company plans to begin serving cans of Cigar City beers as part of the drinks offered to on-board guests.

Ships sailing from the five Florida ports served – 13 in all – will serve Cigar City Florida Cracker Belgian-style White Ale and Invasion Pale Ale. It is projected that as many as 100,000 cans of the brews will be served in the first year.

According to an article in yesterday’s Tampa Bay Business Journal, the partnership began as a conversation at an event in South Florida. Vice President of beverage operations for Carnival Eddie Allen approached a sales person at the event and within a month a deal was struck.

A launch party for the new partnership is planned for July 13 aboard the Carnival Legend at the Port of Tampa.

The Jax Beer Guy has partnered with the UBER car service in Jacksonville. Because of this partnership, you can receive a $20 credit for your first ride by simply using the promo code “JaxBeerGuy” when you register for UBER on your smartphone.
