Cigar City El Murcielago For The “Year Of The Bat”

Cigar CIty El Murcielago105 days ago, Cigar City Brewing mentioned they were tequila barrel aging Double Cream Ale.  The result is El Murcielago (the bat).  They didn’t stop at tequila aging. They through in lime peel and cumin for good measure.

The bat (or “el murcielago”) had a very important role in the making of this beer. Our winged furry friends were responsible for the pollination of blue agave plants, which of course leads to tequila. That tequila was aged in barrels,and those barrels were eventually emptied and found their way to our brewery. We then Filled those barrels with a high gravity double cream ale. And to give it even more oT a southwestern kick, we added some cumin and lime peel as well. El murcielago, we tip our hat to you. 2011-2012 has been designated by the United Nations as the Year of the Bat. Go to for more information about supporting these awesome flying guys.
