Tampa FL brewery Cigar City has set the date for the 4th annual Hunahpu Day, the yearly release of their amazingly popular imperial stout. Saturday March 9th will be filled with the flavors of chocolate, cinnamon and spicy peppers!
Full disclosure: I've never been to Hunahpu Day and consequently, I've never had the beer. But it's on my ever growing "Beer Bucket List". But if some ridiculously loyal reader wants to hook me up I would eagerly work out as compensation….
…anyway, here's the run down on the details. If you make it, enjoy!
Mark your calendars and book your flights kids, Hunahpu Day is approaching! Cigar City’s 4th Annual Hunahpu’s Release Party is scheduled for March 9th and perfectly aligned with Tampa Bay Beer Week (in case you needed more to do while you’re there). This multiple award-winning Imperial Stout boasts high ratings on both Beer Advocate and Rate Beer and is highly sought-after each year.
