Cigar City Brewing's Friday tour at 2:00pm. Tours are $5, which you will pay in person in CCB's tasting room. For 5 bucks you get a tour by a professional tour guide, a pint of beer, AND you get to keep the pint glass!

........................

Going to Clearwater to chatch up with some friends for the SBI Races, so while I am in town, I'll be stopping by CCB.

Went there a few months ago. Place is awesome. Really nice guys. Talked with some of them after the tour about homebrewing.. When we were there they were getting ready to put in the canning line, so maybe they will give tours of that now too.

Almost enough to make me travel to Florida. I love Cigar City beers - they do a great job with them.

I live on the other side of the bridge and frequent there. Great place with nice people. The tasting room is great and they are doing an expansion and will have almost 50 taps. They make some amazing beers. While you are in the area, you should check out some of the other local breweries and beer joints.

Ok the brewery and the tap room need some work done to both, but the beer is really good. The first pic I bought the first day, second one went back the next day to bring back home.

Great brewery great beer, only beef I have with them is their obsession with Simcoe. For some reason I hate the aroma/flavor of that hop.

I live about 30 min away from them, only been once. Nice place, dunno why I don't go more often

Anyway, be sure to try the Maduro, and their Jai Alai IPA is great (pronounce Hai A-Lie, so you don't sound like a tourist)

I went on the tour there a few months ago. The tour guide was awesome, she was an assistant brewer at a smaller local place and worked at Cigar City too. The only people on the tour were homebrewers so we got an 'advanced' tour, way more in depth than your standard "this is how beer is made" tour. It was fantastic.

It reminded me a lot of Ithaca Brewing Co. a few years ago... great beer, cool vibe, and relatively small facility with massive expansion plans due to exploding demand.
