Cigar City adds to its army of fermenters

Tampa- Either one of two events is now probable: scenario 1 is that Cigar City Brewing is pressing hard to reach 60,000 barrels of fermentation capacity, or scenario 2 is that the Tampa brewery is breeding an army of robots disguised as fermenters. In either case, the brewery has three new recruits on route to Tampa from Portland.

The three new 120-barrel fermentation vessels are scheduled to arrive on Monday, 5 August 2013, and will assist Cigar City Brewing in keeping up with their thirsty patrons in the Sunshine State.

Cigar City expects to brew around 25,000 barrels of beer in 2013, up from the 17,000 barrels that they brewed in 2012.
