Cigar City’s Tequila Barrels Go Off Script

Cigar City Ne'er-do-well

Cigar City Brewing’s (Tampa, FL) Ne’er-do-well started its life intending on being El Murcielago, a double cream ale with lime peel and cumin. Thanks to the barrel changing the script on the brewers, it ended up being a little different. Some of the barrels started giving the cream ale some peanut flavor, so the brewery ran with it. Not without adding tamarind and some cayenne for good measure.

Ner-do-well began it’s life intending to be a new batch of El Murcielago. However, it ended up in a different place in its barrel life. You never know what might happen when you spend your life at the bottom of a barrel of tequila. We noticed that some of the barrels started contributing a peanut flavor to the beer so we rolled with it. We added tamarind and a bit of cayenne to create a Mexican-Thai hybrid. It simply is a ne’er-do-well.
