Attended a cask event here, which was an absolute blast. Great crowd, great staff, and they even had food. Joey and Wayne spent lots of time with us and opened quite a few interesting beers. I plan to go back every time Iím in Tampa.

This IS the complete and total package. When the taproom opens the angels will drink here. The business run with the highest level of professionalism and genuine love of brewing. And it shows: the beers are sublime, along the same level of sophistication as Lost Abbey. Cigar City is putting FL on the beer map but at the same time could be in California and stand up for itself. I canít wait to try all the beers in the lineup.

June 2010 -- Visited on a Thursday mid-afternoon. This place has managed to add a groovy little tasting room space alongside a nice little industrial brewery. Expecting good stuff based on reputation, we were not disappointed, with several unique and quality beers on tap, and a couple available to take home in bottles (or any of the tap offerings in small bottles, too). Wish I couldíve spent more time here, to be sure. (Brewery #516)

(Visited 06/2011): The brewery/Tap Room is in Tampa on Spruce Street not too far from the airport. The building has a private lot right out front. The exterior is honestly not much to look at, as it is a fairly non-descript box building. The interior is warmer looking, with a bar on the left side that offers a view of a large board listing the available beers. There is a cooler on the right side holding their to-go selection. Speaking of selection, Cigar Cityís is very good. On my visit there were around 15-16 of their beers on draught, including Patio Tools, 110K+OT Batch #4, Guava Grove, White Oak Jai Alai and Cubano-Style Espresso Brown Ale. All of the beers are well-executed, even the ones that donít quite work. Samplers are available too which is helpful. The bottled selection includes both 6-packs and 750mL options. Service on a slow weekday post-lunch afternoon. The bartender was well-versed in their beers and was friendly and attentive during our stay. The brewery offers tours several days a week. Cigar City does not offer food. Overall this is a great beer destination in Tampa, and in Florida in general for that matter.

Really good service, to take time out of a busy day to hang out with some out-of-town beer geeks. The beers are fantastic. Not much else to say, but they will have a tap room so Iím excited about that. A must visit, and when the tap room is ready (itíll be a while) it will be THE complete and total shit.

Though in a warehouse, this place is very well laid out. Itís got a growler bar at the front near all the merchandise and a bigger bar with tables at the back for tasting. There were at least a dozen taps with three quality guest taps spanning a good selection of styles. The bartender was knowledgeable and very helpful. I was hear on a Tuesday afternoon and there were plenty of people milling about discussing good beer. This is a really cool place.

Always a fun time at CCB. They hold release parties, festivals, so itís hard to rate this place not taking special occasions into account. Clearly the best brewery in Florida right now with, thank the lord, a wet zone so you can have beers on premise. Tap list rotates quite quickly with something new on every week it seems. Loads of special Pilot batch stuff, special releases, guest taps from other Florida microbreweries. Joey and Wayne are both cool guys though very busy. Bar staff can be in crappy moods occasionally but on quieter days you can have some great conversations. Prices are pretty high during festivals but reasonable on normal days. There are take away bottles as well. It used to be everyone hung out inside the brewery, now there is a sectioned off true bar with tables etc. Very fun place to visit and right in the smack middle of cool stuff to do in Tampa. Definitely jaunt over to Alessi Bakery not far away for the best Cuban sandwiches in the US (not a joke). I would rate Alessi 100/100 if it were eligible for RateBeer places. Also stop by Rollin Oats market a block from Alessi to check out some CCB bottles. You can also go over to Whole Foods or Total Wine and More right behind Cigar City to pick up CCB bottles that might not be for sale on premise. Sometimes the beers at Whole Foods and Total Wine are actually $1 less than on premise.

An excellent spot to try, of course, the latest and fresh CC beers. Growler fills. A short walk to the Whole Foods where more bottles are available. Very good service. Although the tour was cut short, the tower of barrels to come was most impressive. Easy to get to in Tampa.

Although this is a run of the mill microbrewery tap room, with spartan decor, the beers are top notch with interesting guest taps, 1$ a sample...cant beat that...a must when in Tampa area.

In Florida for the Hunaphu release, got to visit this place the day before and for the release. The brewery is located in a huge whare house on a slowish street, close to hotels for the release, about a half mile away from a strip mall area... The brewery itself, is much bigger than I imagined being a mostly local brewery. The bar area itself is a bit small, but intimate. There about 6 tables, or you can take a seat at the bar. A chalk board menu shows what drafts are on tap, 6-8 beers, then have a a couple guest taps. Whatís really cool is that you can buy bottles to go directly from them. They offer a 4 sample for a very reasonable price, you can choose any four beers that you want. Iíd give the pub itself probably an A- due to size. However, the release itself was excellent. It was run exceedingly well. Wasnít too big, they had 5 different places to get beer so the lines never were too long. They had tons of special variants of their own beers and the guest taps were great. They had Three Floyds and Founders, which isnít much to a Chicago native, but since the later doesnít get distributed here quite a treat. The event was an A+, reminds me a slightly small more efficient Darkness Day. Iíd gladly go back to CCB and Hunaphu release.
