Tampa- Tomorrow is the day that hundreds of Floridians were planning on to sign up for Cigar City Brewing’s Reserve Society, El Catador Club. Alarm clocks were set and many folks were hoping to be in line long before the 5pm selling start. Then the clock struck 9pm on Saturday evening.
Newcastle, Maine- Coppertail Brewing Company, one of Tampa’s up-and-coming breweries looking to join the Class of 2013, is currently working on their first official beer. There is only one problem: they are not really able to make beer in their current setup. In many other American industries this would prove to be problematic, but not in craft beer. Craft beer continues to turn competing companies into good friends, thus it is only fitting that Coppertail’s first brew be born as a collaboration beer.
