Attention Florida Beer Geeks: your much beloved brewery, Cigar City will be taking over the lines at Tap 42 next week.
And the spot will be featuring some very rare beer-lovers delights.
Clean Plate Charlie spoke to Tap 42's Creative Director and Craft Beer Director Lauren Bowen about the chosen brews and the event.
Starting next Tuesday, May 28 at 7 pm, Tap 42 will be featuring some Cigar City rarities as part of the event. Some of the brews to be featured are so rare, in fact, that getting them took three months of advanced planning.
"We've never done an event like this before," said Bowen, "I gave them a list of beers I thought would do well at Tap--and things that I really like--and they made some of them specifically for us."
The hard to find beers include the breweries' Cucumber Lager, which was only been tapped a couple of times after the success of Cigar City's Cucumber Saison; Blueberry Muffin Brown Ale, one of the most difficult beers to find anywhere; and Chocolate Graham Cracker, a special treatment on the Maduro Oatmeal Brown Ale that has only been available at the brewery in the past.
Other, more popular Cigar City favorites will be available as well, including the Cafe con Leche Stout, which Bowen has been hoarding for the event.
Tap 42 is located at 1411 S. Andrews Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-463-4900.
