As teased in the previous episode, Vedders scientifically picks two beers to taste using the time-tested approach of choosing by the look of the label. He loves labels, so he walked into the liquor store, looked for attractive labels, and picked out two different beers.

 

The results? He picked out one beer that all three of the guys really liked and one that was a split decision. Listen in to find out more about the labels and the beer.

About Cigar City Brewing:

 

“In a state known for theme parks, Cigar City Brewing has become a major attraction for those who appreciate and seek out excellent beer. It opened with a flourish and spread its reach quickly, appealing to both hardened beer geeks and brew novices with eyebrow-raising flavors and commitment to quality.

 

Capitalizing on the Latin culture and tobacco-manufacturing history of Tampa Bay, Cigar City highlights those strengths on its labels and in its beer names and recipes. Many of the beers it produces – Jai Alai IPA, Improv Oatmeal Rye India-Style Brown Ale, Cubano-Style Espresso Brown Ale – reflect the sensibilities and ingredients of Florida. One of Cigar City Brewing’s most sought after beers is a special release called Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout. The 11 percent ale is aged on cacao nibs, Madagascar vanilla beans, ancho chiles, pasilla chiles, and cinnamon.”
- John Holl, The American Craft Beer Cookbook

 

At Cigar City Brewing we make beer we like to drink and toast those who choose to drink with us. Behind all our beer is the philosophy that quality is achieved by giving first rate ingredients to first rate people in a space where they are free to pursue their passion. We acknowledge that what we do at Cigar City Brewing isn’t for everyone, but we welcome all.
