Tampa- Tim Ogden, the brewer who came up with the recipe for Cigar City’s Tocobaga Red Ale, heads up brewing operations at the Cigar City Brewpub on North Dale Mabry. He has shared his brewing abilities and facilities with a few Florida upstart brewers the likes of Cigar City Cider and Mead as well as Gravity Brewlab from Miami.
Next week, Tim is talking about his meeting with Ben Romano from Angry Chair Brewing Company and the beer that will come of this meeting of the minds:
…meeting for the Angry Chair collab we are brewing next week. Banana Cream Pie. Plus a Coconut Banana Cream Pie aged in Bourbon barrels. I hope it doesn’t overattenuate down to 3.14159 degrees plato.
Angry Chair Brewing is working to open a brewery in the Seminole Heights area of Tampa and is still in the process of opening. Their previous collaboration with Cigar City Brewing was a tap takeover during Tampa Bay Beer Week 2013 that introduced Angry Chair’s Berliner Weisses and dessert beers to Tampa Bay.
