TBBW 2018 Event: Cigar City Brewing’s Barrel-Aged Countdown to Hunahpu’s Day

unnamed (95)Cigar City Brewing (Tampa, Florida) has officially announced that it will be offering Tampa Bay Beer Week attendees a Barrel-Aged Countdown to Hunahpu’s Day 2018, a series of barrel-aged beer releases spanning from March 5 to March 8.

It pretty much goes without saying that Cigar City Brewing’s Hunahpu’s Day has earned linchpin status when it comes to Tampa Bay Beer Week (TBBW).  Hunahpu’s, as a beer and a festival, draws an insane amount of beer enthusiasts to Tampa each year and has done amazing things for the local craft beer community in the process.

Some could argue that Cigar City Brewing really does not need to do much beyond this incredible event during TBBW, but the folks at the brewery certainly will not hear it.  They want to do more, and that is why they are introducing the Barrel-Aged Countdown to Hunahpu’s Day 2018.  This series of bottle releases will span most of TBBW and will consist of the following unique and incredibly complex barrel-aged beers:

  • Monday, March 5David Humphreys’ Barrel-aged American Barleywine, aged in Port Bourbon Barrels – $14.99 per 500ml bottle
  • Tuesday, March 6Barrel-aged Imperial Milk Stout, aged in Bourbon Barrels – $14.99 per 500ml bottle
  • Wednesday, March 7Madeira Barrel-aged American Barleywine – $14.99 per 500ml bottle
  • Thursday, March 8Barrel-aged Imperial Stout with Natural Flavors (a.k.a. Mother of All Hunahpu’s Treatments); a Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout brewed with cacao, cinnamon, vanilla, chile peppers and maple – $14.99 per 500ml bottle

These limited release bottles will be available for purchase in Cigar City Brewing’s Tasting Room beginning at 11 a.m. on each beer’s respective release date.  Each beer will have a price tag of $14.99 each per 500ml bottle and there will be no bottle limits.

Fair Warning: Do not allow the lack of bottle limits to lull you into a false sense of security when it comes to getting your hands on the beers listed above.  These Barrel-Aged Countdown beers will be sought after and they will move quickly.  If you have your eye on one (or several) of these beers, just make sure that you turn up at the Tasting Room as close to 11 a.m. as possible on the day of release, be patient, and have a great time with the Cigar City crew and your fellow craft beer fans as you all countdown the days to another memorable Hunahpu’s Day.  Prost!

Founders Brewing Co. Prepares for KBS Week 2018, National Release

KBSWeek2018Founders Brewing Co. (Grand Rapids, Michigan) has announced that the 2018 release of KBS will officially begin with KBS Week  events held in Grand Rapids and Detroit from March 5 – 10.  National distribution of KBS will follow on March 30.

Known as one of the most sought-after barrel-aged craft beers in the country, KBS is an 11.8% ABV Imperial Stout “brewed with massive amounts of coffee and chocolate before aging in oak bourbon barrels in caves beneath Grand Rapids and at an offsite barrel-aging facility.” Always released in limited supply as a part of Founders Brewing Co.’s Barrel-Aged Series, the first glasses of 2018 KBS will be poured in Grand Rapids and Detroit, Michigan during KBS Week 2018.

“When we started brewing KBS about 16 years ago, very few other breweries were doing anything like it,” said Co-Founder and President, Dave Engbers. “The first few packaged runs were difficult to get off of our hands as there wasn’t much interest in a bourbon barrel-aged coffee-chocolate imperial stout, which seems pretty crazy these days. It has since become a phenomenon and we are happy to celebrate its annual release with the people of Grand Rapids and now, for the first time ever, our loyal fans in Detroit. Here’s to continuing beloved traditions and starting new ones!”

KBS Week 2018 will officially kick off on March 5 and run through March 10 with tap events held in Grand Rapids and – for the first time ever – Detroit.  The schedule for KBS Week 2018 is as follows:

Grand Rapids


KBS bottles will be first released through the following taproom pre-order system: “Bottles of KBS available for pickup in the [Founders Brewing Co.] Grand Rapids and Detroit taprooms will be released using a pre-ticketed reservation process via Ticketfly. Bottles can be reserved beginning on Friday, February 2, at 11 a.m. EST, and will be available for pickup March 6-11 from both taprooms.”  **We will update this post with the Ticketfly links for Grand Rapids and Detroit reservations once they go live.**

Distribution of KBS will follow the taproom pre-order and begin with the state of Michigan on March 12.  The remainder of Founders Brewing Co.’s 46 state distribution will see KBS on March 30.  Once fully released, you can look for KBS to be available in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 750ml bottles and on draft at select craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida and throughout the rest of Founders Brewing Co.’s distribution footprint.  Like always, you should expect supplies to be limited and the possibility that retailers will set per person limits.  With that said, we wish you nothing but good luck and happy hunting this KBS season.  Prost!

Vital Information for KBS from Founders Brewing Co.

7venth Sun Brewery Announces Plans for 6th Anniversary Party

7venthSunlogo7venth Sun Brewery (Dunedin & Tampa, Florida) will celebrate its 6th Anniversary on Sunday, January 7 with parties to be held at both brewery locations.

Devon Kreps and Justin Stange established 7venth Sun Brewery in Dunedin back in 2012.  Although they originally intended to open a large production facility at that time, the country’s housing and economic problems made it nearly impossible for them to secure funding.  The two ultimately decided to start small, and this “proved serendipitous as it allowed the creation of a wide variety of styles” and an opportunity to be at the forefront of the “Florida Weisse” movement.  This approach quickly endeared them to the area’s craft beer community and gave the brewery the chance to grow at its own pace.  And grow it did.  In August of 2017, Kreps and Stange opened a beautiful facility in the Seminole Heights area of Tampa to give 7venth Sun two locations that each have their own independent charm and personality.  They have since installed and refurbished some foeders, shifted focus to barrel-aged beers (both sour and spirit-aged), started canning, and remain dedicated to “[pushing] the limits of style descriptions and categories” through innovation and creativity.

With all of that said, it is obvious that everything leading up to the brewery’s 6th anniversary has given the folks at 7venth Sun Brewery plenty to celebrate with their fans.  Since this 6th Anniversary Party will take place simultaneously at two locations, we have a good amount of details to go over.  So . . . let’s break it all down:

The Basics

What – 7venth Sun Brewery 6th Anniversary Party
Where – 7venth Sun Brewery – Dunedin: 1012 Broadway, Dunedin, Florida; and 7venth Sun Brewery – Tampa: 6809 N Nebraska Ave, Tampa, Florida
When – Sunday, January 7 from noon to 10 p.m. at 7venth Sun Brewery – Dunedin; noon to 11 p.m. at 7venth Sun Brewery – Tampa

The Beer

  • Partners In Crime: Pineapple Mango Foedre Aged Beer

  • The party at the Dunedin location will be focused more on the tap list and serving as a chance to have a “Sunday Funday” with all those in attendance.


The 7venth Sun 6th Anniversary Party is free to attend at both locations.  This is a come as you are and pay as you go event.
