After two months of living in Florida I finally visited Cigar City. A very basic layout. A nice bar with swivel stools to your left as you walk in and a few tables to the right for larger parties. A little room in back as well. Quite comfortable atmosphere very laid back. The staff did seem a little rushed and a bit grumpy. I had forgotten my snifter that I bought so I went back in and mentioned to the bartender all that he said was erh. I made sure to say thankyou and got no response. The selection is marvelous however. All Cigar city stuff on tap and two guest taps. I did mark this as a bit pricey. I don't understand some breweries are marking up there beer. Dogfish Head does it and so does Cigar City. I can drive 5 mins from my home in Clearwater to Total Wine and get the same bottle for a dollar less than the actual brewery sells for. I simply do not understand this. Anyway all and all a good experience.

CCB is one of my favorite breweries. I took the brew tour with my wife (make a reservation), and when we arrived they had about 10 beers on tap that we could take on the tour, and maybe 10 more that were available at the bar.
Tour was good. They refilled us on the tour (fresh Jai Alai) and showed the facility, while talking about their new facility. Very friendly and knowledgeable.
There was no food in the building, but a food truck with wraps outside, so that worked. There's a large bar area with tons of choices, including small batch stuff, humidor series, and collaborations. I was very impressed by the selection and sampled as much as I could.
They sell bottles and cans right at the brewery with good availability for their popular stuff. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Tampa!
