Handrolled cigars on premises? Yes please (and they were damn good cigars too! Especially for the price)!

LOTS of beer options. LOTS of solid beers at that. Plenty of beers for sale in cans AND an awesome snifter for purchase. Dare I say, the perfect snifter? Although mine unfortunately broke in transit on way back to New York, which is a severely depressing thought that makes me want to deduct a star out of revenge against the world. But I'll remain strong and remember the Peach American Sour Ale, which is about on par with Westbrook Gose, and all is forgiven. No wait, they served it in that beloved snifter. I hate everything...

Okay, I admit it. I foster way too much feeling towards glassware. Plus the ink peels easy and would've probably all been gone in a month anyway. Yeah. That makes me feel better.

I was saddened by my experience at Cigar City...

After I raved about how well they ran Hunahpu this year, I expected the tasting room to be as good of an experience. Unfortunately, I have never met a more arrogant bartending staff. Front of house service is number one for me, and theirs really left a bad taste in my mouth.

Incredibly spacious, no frills setup. That's important. As much as I love visiting, say, Three Floyds, it really sucks to have to stand in line for a half hour to get a spot at the bar.

The inside is sparse--woody interior, couple tvs, shuffleboard, handful of posters. There's a small to-go bar up front and a much longer and more fully staffed bar at the back, and even though it was 7PM on a Saturday we had no trouble finding a seat, no trouble getting served.

So, to recap, the vibe is plain--maybe even a little vacant or generic--but they exchange exciting ambience for unparalleled usability. That's not a bad trade off at all.

The beers, of course, are excellent. No shock there. But also nothing terribly hard to find. Which is good, because it means that Cigar City does wide releases of most of the beers they make. But also just a wee bit disappointing because it's nice to get to say you've had something new.

Don't got too much else to say. If you're in Tampa, then of course this is a must-visit. I was impressed was how accessible everything was.

The tasting room at Cigar City is wonderful. It's a great place to sample beer (or have a full one) and have fun. Bar tenders could have been more friendly and helpful. If you're not a people person then find another job! The problem is all beers are at same temp. You'd think if anyplace would serve beers at the optimal temperature, it would be a brewery. Oh well.

Extremely disappointed. Was looking forward to this place the most from my trip. The vibe was "OK", and they had a good selection. Loved the fact they had easy to read constantly updated selection with boards showing last time tap lines cleaned. Service was very "meh" with a lot of beer snobby bartenders. Didn't like "Egg" the pub dog walking around on a Friday night with a ton of people clearly stressed out.

CCB is an excellent place to visit. Highly recommended! Probably the best beer tour I've ever been on. Fun, informative, and lots of beer. The taproom has a ton of beers on tap and solid service.
