Cigar City Brewpub closes its doors

Cigar City Brewing’s Northdale brewpub, The Cigar City Brewpub, opened its doors in April of 2013 and has been a staple of great beer and a menu driven by people who care about well-crafted food.  It has been in the hands of great brewers since opening, and the current draft list has been brewed by Nick Streeter, Cigar City Brewing brewer who joined the company in 2013.  Current Chef Gerry Malynowsky has added and revamped the menu to its current state of old classics and new dishes.

The brewpub abruptly announced its closing via Facebook on December 30th.

Farewell and thank you to our Northdale and Carrollwood customers. We are currently scouting new locations and plan to reappear in 2017. Check our Facebook page for updates.
We will continue normal operating hours until Sunday, January 1st at 10PM.

Cigar City Brewpub partner Toni Derby confirmed that the Brewpub is looking for a new home and a smaller space with no further details on location or re-opening date.

About the Cigar City Brewpub
The Cigar City Brewpub opened its doors in 2013 and established itself on the menu of chef Nicolay Adinaguev and the beers of brewer Tim Ogden.  Combined with the service and the praise of its patrons, the Brewpub hosted countless functions for Cigar City Brewing and the local beer community.  When Ogden departed, he was followed by brewer Matt Tucker, and when Tucker left, he was followed by brewer Nick Streeter; the Brewpub has always been in good hands and awash in great beer.

The sudden closing marks an end to this chapter of the Cigar City Brewpub with a promise that it will reopen in the near future.  As soon as information is available on the reopening, Florida Beer News will be elated to share it.

PLEASE NOTE- While the Brewpub is closing, Cigar City Brewing will continue operations and distribution as normal.
