Cigar City Brewing Auctioning A Chance to Brew A Personalized Beer With Brewmaster Wayne Wambles and CEO Joey Redner

Cigar City Brewing is at it again with another eBay auction. This time the Tampa brewery is auctioning off a chance to brew the "perfect, personalized" beer with you.

The winner of the auction, which is in collaboration with Creative Loafing Tampa, will get to work with the Cigar City brew crew on creating and brewing their very own recipe.

First the winner will work with brewmaster Wayne Wambles on creating a recipe. Then they will actually brew the recipe alongside Wambles and brewery founder Joey Redner. Marketing director Geiger Powell help them develop a custom label for the brew.

It gets better. When the beer is ready to drink, Tampa's Brew Bus will bring them and nine friends to a brewery release party for the beer in the Cigar City tasting room. when

If that was not enough, the winner will also get to bring home 10 cases of 22 ounce bottles, or the equivalent amount in kegs for another party (or for personal use, of course).

Don't expect to make a cheap bid. When the auction began on December 4, it started at $0.99 and has risen to more than $5,100. And the auction has four days left.
