One of my favorite places to be. This is Cigar City...of course the beer selection is fantastic. Everytime I have gone, there is something new on tap (brewery exclusive) that is amazing. Last time it was the Hopped Up Johnny which was Zhukov on Johnny Walker Blue chips...one of the best stouts I have ever tasted.

Staff is super friendly and attentive, and I have yet to walk out without buying something from the cooler before leaving.

Atmosphere is very relaxed and usually end up striking up a conversation with someone, even though I am with a large group of friends.

Went to Fruit In The Room this past weekend and thought Cigar City pulled it off flawlessly. Serving 32 different beers is no easy task, but the staff worked their ass off to make it happen.

You feel like you’re in the swamp when you’re in this place, and I mean that in a positive sense.
Diverse selection of brews and I was able to negotiate with one of the managers on a price for a bottle of BA Zhukov ‘16. Boom!
You can feel the humidity, the dankness, the moisture in the air and you want more of it. So you stay all day, get loaded and enjoy the swamp!

I think CC falls in the category of somewhat out of people's minds. But it should not be. Beers were outstanding. Tried sours, imperial stouts, and a few other stouts. Selection was amazing. Favorite was the cinnamon raisin cookie brown ale. If I had a designated driver it would have gotten ugly. A must visit brewery

Stopped in here one evening while in state briefly for work. No parking in main lot, so I pulled across the street in the well-labeled overflow lot. Ordered a delicious dinner from the food truck outside and sat down with a beer at a picnic table on the patio. It is kind of confusing how there are 2 bars so close to each other with different selections. Also one can accommodate small pours but the other can’t. I wish that all beers had been available in 8oz pours so I could have tried more as I had to drive later that evening. As it was I stuck to 5oz tasters and low abv.

Vibe was compromised also by the fact that all outdoor seating is also the smoking section so warts of smoke kept interrupting my enjoyment.

Overall selection was great, though I again I wish I could have sampled more variety in small pours. To go selection was also pretty good so I rounded out my night by grabbing 4 options from the cooler to enjoy later.

Beer quality was excellent. Good beers, brewed to style, with fun twists that didn’t detract from the overall package. The lemon peel and lemon drop hops lager was quite enjoyable.

Service was good, but I wish they had the flexibility to pour smaller glasses. I offered to pay the same price as a 12 oz. beer for an 8oz. pour and they apologized and poured the full thing. Of course I need to take responsibility cause I did drink the whole thing!

Worth the side trip from Orlando.

A pretty big location, with a solid vibe and a wise decision to separate their location with a Growler / 12oz pour bar and a back bar with varying pours and a larger / small batch variety. Beer quality was good, great selection. Service was very good, and would definitely revisit.

Loved visiting this small but popular Lacal Craft Brewery. The Madura happens to be my fav.

Great selection of beer on tap at 3 different bars in the vast brewery warehouse. Chill music on the i-pod shuffle and local food trucks to keep your mind stable after a few 10% beers. The best treat were their Cask Ales on tap :)
