Default Cigar thread

When I crack open a nice hombrew and relax on my balconey there is nothing i like better to accent my beer than a wonderful cigar. I could be wrong but I'm guessing I am not the only one on here that feels the same way. I feel that I know a decent bit about cigars but love reading about little tricks and new cigars. When I have questions about things I have to find some one to talk to and see if they know the answer. I have seen other forum dedicated to cigars but I am not a member on any of them. Long story short, what about having single thread dedicated to cigars. If I'm the only one who feels this way then i will shut up. Just a thought as I enjoy my LFD Double Ligero and a home brew

How about the option: "No, I appreciate cigars, I just don't smoke them"

I love the smell, I just don't smoke any.

I think the idea of a nice cigar with a Bourbon County Stout sounds like heaven. I just couldn't tell you if it actually is

I smoke cigars very VERY rarely, and never tried with with a homebrew, but I've noticed the cigar smell overpowers any aroma (and to a limited extent taste) from beers I was drinking at the time. Could just be me.

I enjoy a nice cigar every now and then, I have a humidor filled with CAO, Patron, Monticristo, and a few assorted Cubans I brought back from a cruise a few years back.

I find myself heading to my pipe rack lately, some nice pipe tobacco and a homebrew are a magical duo. My Saison and a pipe of buttered rum tobacco are on tonights menu.

Good call, I didn't think of that option, but i don't think I can add an option after the poll was posted

Usually the only times I smoke cigars is when I am fishing or camping.

I enjoy a good cigar occasionally, but it's been years since I've had one.

No, you are not alone. I like a good homebrew or craft beer to compliment my cigar.

Don't you mean you like a good cigar to compliment your homebrew?
