Default Hop Flavored Cigar?

Idk what to think about this. I stubled across is online. They are selling Hop Flavored Cigars, "seasoned with 100% Centennial Hops"

http://www.tedscigars.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=teds-cigars&Category_Code=hopz-craft-beer-cigars

I might have to order a few and try them. It would be a shame not to with all this beautiful weather we have been having. I love sitting on the front porch with a cigar and an IPA.

Might be worth a try.

Do it and let us know what your thoughts are.

Not sure that would be for me, but along those lines I tried a Humidor Amber Ale Homebrew that was supposed to have notes of cedar and tobacco. It reeked like moth balls and tasted like puddle water; I tried it after watching 4 other people spit it out. Some things aren't meant to be mixed.

I mentioned this cigar to SWMBO and she replied "why don't we just get you some hops and have you try brewing beer?"

She has always been resistant to beer brewing because of the space it requires and possible odors.

So, thodson2010, your thread has done me a solid favor. Thanks for that.

Haha Fantastic! Glad to see another homebrewer getting permission! I will say it is a bug though, and man does she bite hard! Good luck on brewing, and be sure to ask on the forum if you ever have any questions!

@hungryforhops - Sweet! I might have to order a few then and try 'em out!
