Been here a bunch and my review wont vary much from most others. Located in an industrial area and it doesn’t look like much from the outside. Inside it’s a very nice little bar area with the brewery attached next store. Bathrooms are in the brew area so you get a little walk by tour. I have always been treated well here even when just popping in to fill growlers. Taps vary greatly but they always have Jai Alai and Maduro. Not everything will be available for growler fills so check the board. Its marked as to what is and is not ok for fills. Best bet for a new drinker to CC is get a flight or two. There is a good variety always. I love that they also put other Florida brewers on tap. Bottles can be purchased as well and at times they have neat one offs there as well. Ask for what they have.
You really cannot go wrong here. I visit about 6 times a year on business and have a habit of booking a hotel close. You will need to walk home…slowly…

I stopped for a brewery tour while with my wife on our last trip to Tampa. It was neat seeing the brewery, and it was after the latest shit show of Huna Day 2014. You could tell everyone was a little tired and overwhelmed by the events of the weekend. Our tour guide Chris was fantastic, answered any and all questions and gave us a nice history of the brewery and some of the beers. The selection in the tap room was decent, I got to try a lot of one-offs. The bartender at the front bar, Zeus was pretty cool. The bartender at the back bar, don't remember his name, but he could have cared less about people buying flights, and only was interested in serving those who were buying full pints. Needless to say, we hung out by the front bar. We also got sandwiches from the cafe they have set up there. Not a huge selection, but the Cuban sandwich was pretty darn tasty. Overall, I liked the experience and will be going back.

Okay, get your shit together guys. I traveled all the way from NC and was expecting much more at Huna day 2014. Didn't get to try any of the taps I wanted because of greedy bastards who managed to get by your lazy-ass "ticket checker." Great beer, shitty service, overpriced food = overrated experience. Hope you fix your issues.

It was raining today when we went to Tampa. We had intended on a trip to the zoo but wound up at the Cigar City Brewery and had a great time. Tasting room was packed and it took a long time to get one of the bar keeps attention. Once we did it....was....on! Being from OH this was a treat for me! Im super glad we stopped and got treata for the journey home.
