Cigar City Slow As Molasses, a Swamp Head Collab

Cigar City Slow As Molasses

Cigar City Slow As Molasses, a collaboration with Gainesville, Florida’s Swamp Head Brewery.

Cigar City Slow As Molasses is an old ale, brewed with Florida molasses. Proceeds will benefit the Florida Brewers Guild, who has been busy lately fighting against legislative moves that could damage how craft breweries do business in the state.

The Florida Brewers Guild has been a catalyst for growth of Florida’s craft beer industry since its inception in 1996. The guild helps brewers around Florida band together to fight for legislation that helps our collaborative industry continue to grow. This collaboration brew, and others of its kind that will arise, is a tribute and fundraiser for our friends at the FGB. We like to think of it as an attaboy in a bottle.

Cigar City Slow As Molasses is a 22 ounce bottle offering. This is part one of a two part collaboration series between the two brewers.

This offering has been officially announced by the brewery.

Style: Old Ale (w/ Molasses)
Availability: 22oz Bottles
