Cigar City Tap 42 Takeover and Barrel-Aged Hunahpu's Imperial Stout Raffle Tonight
Cigar City Brewing is taking over the taps at Tap42 and you know when this happens, it's serious business. How serious? Serious enough for Tap42 to raffle off one bottle of Cigar City's prized Barrel-Aged Hunahpu's Imperial Stout.
The takeover begins at 7 p.m. and that's when you start collecting raffle tickets.
Collect raffle tickets? Yes.
After you have amassed a pile of raffle tickets, Tap42 will select a random winner who will be notified through phone or email the following day. Keep your cell phone and computers close by, you don't want to miss this.
Now for the beers (the moment you've been waiting for). On tap:
More Cigar City beers will make an appearance. Most of them are rarely found anywhere else other than at the Cigar City brewery in Tampa, such as the Patio Pils, Humidor IPA and Cucumber Saison, so this is your chance to try 'em without having to drive 3-plus hours (not that you wouldn't).
The Hunahpu's Imperial Stout is particularly special, because it is only released once per year on Hunahpu Day, which is the second Saturday in March. According to myth, Hunahpu brought cocoa to the Mayans. Finding the special brew anywhere other than where it's made is particularly hard. One bottle usually sells for about $20.
