Who and What is Florida Man?
Tampa Bay Brewing Company and Cigar City Brewing are quickly becoming some of the elder statesmen when it comes to Florida’s craft beer scene. The two owners, Dave Doble and Joey Redner also happen to share similar birthdays and in close proximity to TBBC (and former CCB) brewer Tim Ogden. Recently, as a way to commemorate their respective progress, the two owners, who also happen to be brewers, banded together to commemorate their mutual marches into the future.
Recently, Tampa’s Cigar City Brewing announced some major changes related to Hunahpu’s Day. The major question from inquiring minds is: “How will this year’s festival be different from past years?”
Cigar City Brewing posted what has to be the largest collaboration beer of craft brewers at the same time. While much of the craft beer world was preparing to enjoy Hunahpu Day, the brewers that came by to join in the festivities all got to the brewery early and worked in (somewhat) secret on a mega-collaboration beer.
