Cigar City Hunaphu Day 2011 Details

UPDATE  3/10 – More taps added

This Saturday is the release of Cigar City Brewing’s infamous Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout.  Hunahpu is an imperial stout with Peruvian cacao nibs, Ancho & Pasilla chilies, cinnamon, and Madagascar vanilla beans.  It’s big, huge, and complex.  The bottles are going on sale for a big Hunahpu day at the brewery in Tampa, Florida this Saturday, March 12, 2011.

Cigar City’s Blog today revealed details on the event, beers on tap, food and entertainment. Looking good.

We are getting close and we are getting very excited! As the days near and we get more beers together we might update this list, but this is what we have got so far.

Hunaphu Release Day Details

The first 750 people who receive a wristband will be able to buy Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout (up to 4 bottles) when it goes on sale at 6pm. If you are paying by credit card you will be able to pre-pay for your bottles immediately or throughout the day so that you can quickly get your bottles when they go on sale. If there are any bottles left after all 750 people have come to claim/buy their bottles OR 9pm (leaving a 3 hour window for you to claim your bottles if you have a wristband) the remaining bottles will go on sale to the public. Bottles will be for sale ONLY at the brewery. They will not go into distribution.

*Re-Entry is allowed throughout the day so you can come and get your wristband and come back later if you have something else to do, it is not required that you be here all day to claim your bottles at 6pm.
