Tampa -- Part 2!

Tampa -- Part 2!

This wrap-up of a trip down to the gulf coast of Florida happens to fall on Tampa Craft beer week, leading up to Cigar City taking over a football stadium parking lot for what might be one of the most anticipated beer events of the year. Hunuhpu Day, Saturday, March 10th, marks Cigar City's tenth anniversary of its OG Mexican Chocolate Dessert Stout annual release. Tickets sold out quickly and include bottles of the coveted beer, and a party with an amazing list of breweries attending with some fantastic beer. This year many other breweries are joining in the excitement in their own unique ways.  

Tampa!

Tampa!

As many of you are well aware, winters can be pretty rough in these parts. I am not a fan of winter sports or hunting, so most of the time I spend outside is walking my dog. Them winter blues got the better of me and I booked a flight to Florida a few weeks back. I thought I could see some friends I had need seen in a long time, enjoy the beach for a bit and explore the Gulf Coast beer scene. Here is a pint by pint recap of that trip.
