Tampa’s Cigar City Brewing is debuting two of their offerings in new larger can options. If you thought 12oz or 16oz of double IPA or hard seltzer was not enough for one session, then the brewery has heard you and an answer is on the way:
From the Cigar City Brewing newsletter:
Looking for a new way to enjoy your favorite CCB beer or seltzer while minimizing your trips to the fridge? We’ve got you covered with the announcement of 19.2-ounce cans of Florida Man Double IPA and Florida Orange Seltzer. These new package formats will join Jai Alai IPA in the pantheon of really, really big CCB cans this fall.
Premiered by CANarchy labelmates Oskar Blues Brewery in 2012, 19.2-ounce cans (also called Stovepipe cans) were developed with the goal of maximizing volume in each can while utilizing much of the same equipment that fills and seals 12- and 16-ounce cans. These uber-tallboys use lids with the same dimensions as 12- and 16-ounce cans, and are the same height as 22-ounce cans. With the can size pushed to the limit of most brewery canning lines, Oskar Blues had fashioned the perfect single serve option for music venues, sports arenas, and any other locale that called for maximum beer or seltzer enjoyment with limited trips to the bar.
Cigar City Brewing made our first foray into the world of 19.2-ounce cans in early 2021 with the introduction of Jai Alai IPA 19.2-ounce cans, and we’re thrilled to announce two new additions to our “really tallboy” lineup: Florida Man Double IPA and Florida Orange Seltzer. Florida Man’s crazy hoppy profile has earned it fans across the country as they “find their next Florida Man,” and the beer’s flavor profile evolves and reveals new nuance as one works their way through a 19.2-ounce serving. Introduced in 2020, Cigar City Seltzer has become an iconic brand throughout CCB’s footprint, with Florida Orange becoming a fan favorite among flavors. With 19.2 ounces in each serving, Florida Orange Seltzer Stovepipes keep the party going without frequent trips to the cooler.
