Cigar City Brewing Company is well known for many of their interesting and creative brews. Located in Tampa, Florida, they are one of the hot spots of South Florida and the weather is lovely all year round, making the area the perfect getaway for vacationers not matter the month. This means that Tampa is also a Mecca for activity, sights, and great craft beer!
There is always something amazing on tap at Cigar City’s taproom. No matter the season, they offer some of the best craft beer in South Florida. Right now they have a laundry list of brews on tap, with several available as growler fills, too. If you’re looking for something crisp and refreshing, check out their Jai Alai IPA, which features an ABV of 7.5%, has great aroma and flavor, and a refreshing finish that’ll keep you happy all night long.
For something that is more suited to the heat of the day, Cigar City brings forth their Margarita Gose, a German-style Sour beer that has a dash of salt, margarita style, as well as some great citrus and lime notes that will really pop in your mouth. This brew rings in at just 4.2% ABV, making it a fully sessionable brew, as long as you enjoy some citrus in your day.
For those who want a bit of chocolate decadence in their summer day, Pollona! is an outstanding choice. This Milk Stout has plenty of chocolate notes to satisfy your hunger for the silky chocolate flavors while remaining sessionable at a mere 4.4% ABV, giving you plenty of longevity for your relaxation with the brew.
No matter which brews on their extensive tap list you choose, Cigar City is certainly going to be a must-stop location during your vacation in South Florida. We’ve tried several of their outstanding craft beers and we’re never disappointed with their quality and flavor. The folks at Cigar City work hard to provide their loyal patrons with brews that waft plenty of aromas to draw them in, while still providing a great flavor in each brew and a great finish that keeps you coming back for more.
Tell us about the different Cigar City brews you’ve tried during your craft beer enthusiast’s journey. We love hearing from our readers as it gives us a great way to relax after a long day of work here at West Palm Beach Brewery and Wine Vault. Our own opening seems to be getting closer every day and we’ve been working hard to be ready for that event. We hope to see all of you there and, in the meantime, happy tasting!
