(Nerdy AND alcoholic. Nice.) The week after that, Florida & California gets their bottles. April 18th – IL, NY, NJ, VA, MD, DC, GA get bottles. After May 2nd, NV, AZ, CO, OR, WA, WI, OH, IN, MA, NC, SC, PA get their bottles.
For our first collaboration beer we are lucky to partner with Cigar City Brewing out of Tampa, Florida. Geographically a country apart but following similar paths, we felt an immediate connection with Joey, Wayne and the crew. We’re both young breweries, founded and staffed by homebrewers, who use interesting ingredients and techniques to make unique, full-flavored beers. A recipe was created over pints at Falling Rock Tap House during GABF 2009 and Wayne came out to help brew it shortly after. Over a year in barrels has left this dark sour layered with notes of cranberries, tropical fruits, leather and aged balsamic vinegar, balanced by wood tannins and roasted malt. Raise a glass and toast to the success of fledlging breweries across this great nation!
