No, not an exotic land. It’s Cigar City Brewing’s beer arriving in bottles for the first time June 3rd. Tocobaga is a hoppy red ale dry hopped with citra, and the brainchild of assistant brewer Tim Ogden. Tocobaga disappears on tap at the Cigar City tap room as fast as it arrives.
June will see the release of 750ml bottles. The brewery has been holding a contest for bottle artwork through Hampton Arts Mgmt. There were more than 60 submissions, narrowed down to just 10. The release party on June 3rd will feature prints of the 10 finalists, and the announcement of the winner. To the left is a small mashup of 6 of the finalists. Be sure to check out all 10. <HamptonArtsMgmt>
