First stop in Tampa on a recent mini vacation visit...its very close to the airport, and made for a relaxing spot to unwind a bit from the usual airport stress.

Large bar and growler fill area up front, with ample options to go in a couple of refrigerators. And a larger/longer bar area towards the rear. Friendly staff, comfortable and low key athmosphere, tons of CC options on tap, bottle, cans and growler fills. Industrial area and feel to the brewery.

No real food offered. Bring some in or order for delivery when you get there. Never understand why places like this dont have at least something decent to eat or partner with a vendor/food truck.

Well worth a visit to stock up on and enjoy the tasty CC beers.

Taproom is filled with a bunch of snobs. The tenders are identical as they throw shade at everyone that walks in. Kind of bullshit. Was from out of town and knew nothing about their brews, but couldn't get the time of day from any of the employees. The beer is good, their service is fucking terrible, and that is being nice.

This place will always be my favorite brewery in Florida. Outstanding customer service, excellent beers, and delightful patrons. Really hard to find a better brewery in Florida IMHO.

We really enjoy this brewery and the tap room. The tap room is at the brewery and quite large compared to some we have visited. Cool swag, Crowlers, and good beer.

The brewery itself is clean and comfortable but nothing to write home about, really, so I'll just speak to the selection. Cigar City has multiple very good beers, e.g., Jai Alai, Guayabera, Hunahpu, Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Brown Ale, and Cafe Con Leche. They have 20ish things on tap and some bottles (like Hunaphu) that you can buy. The bottles are all pricey but stuff you probably wouldn't be able to get otherwise, without trading. Everything they make is solid. Go if you're in Tampa.

Mostly IPA's and a few others. Sours were not very good. Thought i would enjoy this place more.
