Brewery Description:

Cigar City Brewing was founded with two goals in mind. The first to make the world’s best beer and the second to share with people near and far the fascinating culture and heritage of the Cigar City of Tampa. From its past as the world’s largest cigar producer to its Latin roots and the many other diverse peoples that call it home, Tampa draws on many sources to develop its unique culture. At CCB we are fascinated by Tampa’s history and suspect you will be too. Cigar City Brewing is comprised of a 15 barrel (one barrel is 31 gallons) brewhouse occupying 6,600 sq. ft. of warehouse space in the Carver City-Lincoln Gardens neighborhood of Tampa. We currently have nineteen fermentors. Six 15 barrel, ten 30 barrel and three 60 barrels. There is rarely a day when each tank isn’t filled with beer. We use the highest quality ingredients we can lay our hands on and that is not just marketing jargon. If it makes better beer, we use it. We also strive to use local ingredients when and where we can. Not only do fresh local ingredients help us to make better beer, it helps us to make beer that reflects the culture and heritage of Tampa Bay.–
