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…

Fun place. Great people. Two bars and 20 CC Beers to try. Good range Inc 4 intros and 2 on cask. Current tap lineup was pretty good but too many MOR beers. Some very good but little exemplary. A couple of experimental beers were interesting. Vintage bottles of great stuff / fairly priced but on premises drinking only really limits ability to taste and savor. Unless you come as a group and share the bombers. Cooler had a number of choices for 4/6 packs... and a couple of BA singles. All in all plenty to try and still take some home. Staff are awesome, friendly and super knowledgeable.
Would definitely recommend for a visit if in Tampa/St Pete area.

This place hearkens back to the small-town bar feel that I, like many others; know and love. But, as a brewery; has a great selection of drafts available for just about anyone.

Love hanging out at this brewery. They always have a great draft selection, and even pour bottles of Hunahpu's from time to time. There's plenty of room and two bars.

Cool feeling inside with a lively crowd of people. Had a nice selection of their beers and for the most part has friendly staff.
The tour is a must and I personally had a great tour guide. Highly recommend to anyone who appreciates beer. Cigar City definitely knows what they are doing. The gift shop on site has a nice selection of gear with fair prices. Have fun!

We did the brewery tour on a Sunday. Staff was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
Excellent beers...I mostly stuck with the Jai Alai (excellent). We were hoping to get the White Oak Barrell Aged Jai Alai but they were out at the brewery. We later found some locally at Whole Foods and it did not disappoint.
Great Vibe. There was always a good crowd but lines moved quickly. Great food trucks; Highly recommended.
