This place is a must stop on your bay area beer tour. Always something special on tap that you don't expect. Always a reason to stop by and see what's new. Lots of packages available to go.

Went for Huna Day so I'm a little biased but the taste room selection was great along with the service. The new bar area really helps with the crowd. Everything on tap was great. The combination of flavors they experiment with all work.

Try the Strawberry JalapeƱo PB&J Double Cream Ale if you have the chance. Tastes and smells like a Strawberry PB&J Uncrustable with a slight amount of heat in the throat. Sounds weird but works beautifully.

As for Huna Day, AWESOME, nothing else really needs to be said.

Cigar City was really great. Full size bar, excellent food truck out front, tons of CCB and a few other offerings on tap, as well as a separate bar just for growlers/crowlers/quarts. The only minor complaint I had was that the first server I got was relatively gruff and seemed quite pissy, though I'm sure it was just because it was really busy. Not a big deal, and everyone else was totally cool.

Love Cigar City. The place that introduced me to craft brews.

This year hunahpu's day event cost 200 for a 6 hour event which I thought was obscene price but as I worked the event as a volunteer as the 2nd shift gate captain and was shocked at the number of people who were will to shell out 200 in cash to get
in fact the 2000 ticket to the event sold out in 30 minutes.
and I did work also after my shift at the exit gate and ever saw so many happy people giving great praise to the event as there were 80 microbrewery's there from north America

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.
