Cigar City Hapax Legomenon, one of the brewery’s most unique

Cigar City Hapax Legomenon

Cigar City Hapax Legomenon is a future release by the Tampa, Florida brewery. The brewery already has a repertoire of unique beers, but this upcoming release is pushes the boundaries a bit.

Cigar City Hapax Legomenon begans as a Belgian-style tripel ale aged in gin barrels. After some barrel time, the brewery blended in some grapefruit sour ale. The result? A one of a kind addition to the brewery’s lineup.

Hapax Legomenon refers to a word or from that occurs only once in a document. And often, it is a word that you will only find one time in an author’s entire oeuvre. For example, Shakespeare used the word “satyr” exactly once in all of his writings. This beer began as a Belgian-style tripel aged in gin barrels. After some time in barrels, we blended in some American Grapefruit Sour Ale. When it’s all said  and done, we think we can safely say that this will be the only occurrence of a gin barrel-aged Belgian-style triple blend with an American grapefruit sour ale to be found in our oeuvre.

Cigar City Hapax Legomenon will be a 750 milliliter bottle release. The brewery tells Beer Street Journal they aren’t sure how much will be released at this time.
