Default My Cigar City Brewery Tour

Hey all, I just wanted to post up some pictures of the tour I did in Tampa this weekend. Cigar City is a newer brewery but has a ton of awards and is well deserved. Hope the pictures come out ok, we will see.....

Thanks for sharing pics. I've heard great things, about the Humidor Series especially.

Looks like they didn't show you the expansion area they'll be moving into this spring (probably because of construction). There's some very sweet equipment in there, with an internal calandria. Their lagers are already good; that should kick them up another notch!

No, the tour was only in the original building, the expansion is in the building behind it, they talked about it a bit. I'll have to go back when it opens for sure

I'll be in Tampa end of March. I can't wait to check out Cigar City and Yuengling.
I did Yuengling, Pottsville about 4 months ago.

Even though we have out monthly "Department Meeting" at Cigar City we've never taken the brewery tour. They're a great bunch of guys & gals who seem to really enjoy what they're doing.

We've taken the Brew Bus from Cigar City to some of the local beer festivals and would recommend those too. I don't know how they're affiliated to the brewery, if at all, but they always have their beer on the bus.

The missus and I took the Yuengling tour last Saturday and since there was no production running they gave us some extra free samples at the end of the tour. The tour is a great way to start a Saturday afternoon, and it's free.
