The total year-end production was around 1,000 barrels of beer in 2009 -- 2016 projections are thought to be in excess of 65,000 barrels.

Awesome beer, by awesome people. Every style of beer you crave, they've got it. Wheat, rye, IPA, stout, it's all there and the staff know all about them and are happy to chat with you about them. Can't leave without picking up a freshly rolled cigar too. They got a guy rolling them right there! Taproom is good size, and there's a bar up front to get your to go package as well and you will be bringing some home with you.

As a long time craft beer enthusiast, I must say that the brewery lived up to it's reputation. Although I do not live in Tampa and stopped by alone, the people there were extremely friendly and welcoming. Their selection is outstanding and they also had some great beers that were bottled so you could take some with you. Even if you are not into the craft beer hobby, they have many cool and unique beers that are worth trying. The beers that are available only at the brewery were amazing. They had a sampler option that was great for someone who wants to try several different beers.

Stopped in to Cigar City fresh off of our plane ride into Tampa and quenched our thirst with some of the best brewed beer in the country! Order some flights and try as many as you can.

So many beers on tap that it's hard to decide. I went with the Jai Alai IPA, and a few of their seasonals on their sampler. There is a carryout area up front for growlers and packaged beer, with a 2nd set of taps further back for those who want to hang out. The brewery is next door.
