Freshly adorned with some sweet new branding, Cigar City Brewing (Tampa, Florida) has come forward to give fans a look at the year ahead with the publication of the brewery’s 2018 Distribution Calendar.
As is the case with all brewery calendars around here, we have posted Cigar City Brewing’s full 2018 Distribution Calendar below so that you can look it over at your own pace. We do have a few points to mention first, so let’s quickly get those out of the way:
- Guayabera Citra Pale Ale will be added to the Year-Round lineup in 2018. It will join Jai Alai IPA, Florida Cracker Belgian-style White Ale, Invasion Tropical Pale Ale, Lager, and Maduro Brown Ale to comprise the brewery’s full Year-Round portfolio.
- Special Releases will continue to include such long-standing favorites as White Oak Jai Alai IPA (January – March & July – September), Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Brown Ale (April – June), Marshal Zhukov’s Imperial Stout (November) and several more.
- The draft-only Nitro Series will continue in 2018. Keep an eye out for Minaret English Pub Ale (March – April), Xenu Cream Ale (July – August), Cafe con Leche Sweet Stout (November – December) and others to hit draft lines throughout the year.
- If you are freaking out a bit because you cannot locate one of your favorite Cigar City brews on the calendar, please keep in mind that this distribution calendar only lists beers that are hitting the brewery’s full distribution footprint. Rest assured knowing that there will still be countless other special and limited release offerings hitting shelves and taps throughout the year.
That’s all we have for you on this one, but there are still plenty of beers that we did not go over remaining on the calendar below. Be sure to give it a good once over so that you can start getting excited for another fantastic year of beers ahead from Cigar City Brewing. Prost!
