5 Rabbit & Cigar City Team Up on El Bizarrón

Cuban cuisine is the theme for this 5 Rabbit Cerveceria (Chicago, IL) and Cigar City Brewing (Tampa, FL) collaboration – El Bizarrón. What better than 2400 pounds of plantains?

The plantains were hand peeled, sliced and caramelized, alongside the addition of dark malts for a rich base. The end result is a complex, flavorful porter that is labor of love.

El Bizarrón is the hero of a Cuban folktale. A simple worker who outsmarted the devil, winning his freedom as well as a load of silver, kicked to the heavens loaded on his faithful burro, way up high where he knew the devil couldn’t follow.
