12 Ounces For Cigar City Tocobaga

Cigar City Brewing’s Tocobaga is getting a little 12oz love.  .  Tocobaga is a hoppy red ale dry hopped with citra, and the brainchild of assistant brewer Tim Ogden.  The brewery recently held an artwork contest for the label seen above, that was announced in June.   This is Eric Swanson’s entry.  Previously 750ml bottles.

The Tocobaga Indians lived off of the bounty of Tampa Bay for hundreds of years before being discovered by the Spanish in the 1500’s.  They were potters, tool makers and the only Florida native Indians to grow corn.  The large platform mounds they built are still with us today, with one of the largest found in Philippe Park in Safety Harbor, Florida.  Climb to the top, and with a little imagination, you can see Tamp as they did.  Today Cigar City Brewing honors this native spirit with Tocobaga Red Ale.  A deep-colored amber ale with an abundance of hop flavor and aromas balanced with a subtle caramel malt sweetness in the finish.  We believe if the Tocobaga were here today they would join us in raising a glass to the bay we call home.

  1. Glad to hear this.  This is my favorite CCB beer, along with Humidor Jai Alai.  Here’s hoping it’s a six-pack?
