I really hope this isn't a trend. Nothing says aroma-death like cigar smoke. Here! Ruin your palate with hot smoke and then try to taste the complexities of this beer!

Bleh.

There's a cigar and beer bar here with a really great tap list. Sure, you have to smoke on their patio, but I still won't go. The aromas carry in with people, and it is just distracting to me. I know I'm a snob, though, so not everyone is looking for the same experience in drinking that I am.

I'm not going for the cigars, but I will smoke one on very rare occasions.

A friend of a friend is one of the organizers, when I get more information I will update here.

Why in Jackson??? I'm not going to drive back from a beer fest in Jackson to Memphis. And adding cigars doesn't make me anymore likely to go, for sure. Weird...

Ooh! I hope someone brings this to the Hot!
I love a cigar almost as much as I love a beer.
When I'm shopping for a cigar, I usually ask what pairs best with what I'm planning on drinking.
Talk about flavor complexity.
Mmm.

Bleh.
I agree. Very few beers can stand up to a cigar in my opinion.

Well, I will be driving back to Lakeland, unless I can con SWMBO into driving me.

Nothing like tearing down I40 with a load on!

(kidding)

I'm mostly going to check stuff out.
