    Definitely agree Black Rooster is my go to (go with the Guac and their Black Rooster Taco). Across the street Pig Floyds is killer if you want BBQ and they're both really close to GB Bottle Shop / Thirsty Topher / Ten10 and Redlight Redlight.

    Thanks all much appreciated. Looking forward to a great week of Florida's finest liquids, tacos, and cuban food

    In Tampa you have to go to Loli's tacos. It's near the airport so not too far from CCB. It's well worth the trip. It's a no frills place, very small but some of the best tacos I've ever had and I've eaten a lot of tacos. :D

    Tako Cheena and Black Rooster are both great, if your going to be around the Universal area at all then Border Grill is a must for tacos!

    Uhhh...well...that's because it was called "Peach Whalez" not Whalez 3.0...I'm sorry I call things by their actual name and not some random name you decided to make up ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I LOVED PEACH WHALEZ, just killed the second bottle I had last week, amazing.

    The cycle line was crazy compared to most of the recent ones. I was able to get back in line...had to get my local buddy his bottles. I got there at 6am, I was within the first 75 people. Got back in line at 8:15 after first allotment and was done by 9:20...love the way they run lines.

    The sour festival was alright, a lot of brewers weren't there. I heard something about home brewers were told last min they were not allowed, so half of the taps weren't there. That's just what I heard, may not be correct info. Arkane stole the show imo, can't elope was incredible.

    I was wondering why it seemed like there wasn't a whole lot of beer there. I felt like I kept drinking the same things over and over. Not in a bad way tho.

    And yes Arkane did have some of the best beer there. The taste the rainbow is absolutely incredible! But if you frequent their taproom this is not a surprise. Arkane has become one of my favorite places to go, everything they make is solid. I'm looking forward to their anniversary party in a few weeks.

    We must not have been as close in line as I thought. I was the back of the line at 8:20. Anyhow, if the guy sharing Maple Vlad is in this thread, thank you

    Looks like they're holding the back release date for now.

    I'm more curious about whether anyone knows which cinnamon whiskey barrels they used for this and Big Adventure...hoping against Fireball.

    I thought Big Adventure was awesome, so I would not be upset if they used the same style barrels.

    Pretty disappointed in this decision. I really look forward to stopping by CCB on Tuesday to pick up something cool.

    Hopefully the treatments they decide to do are actually thought out in advance instead of the weird stuff they have had on lately.

    I love ccb but let's not pretend that a lot of the treatments were forgettable. I hope this new method proves to be more successful going forward!

    Growler Tuesday was cool when something good was put on. 90% of the time it was an IPA with some random fruit treatment or a brown ale with cinnamon.

    I'm not a CCB homer by any means but you guys aren't giving them enough credit. In the last 4 months they have released a nice list of Tuesday Growlers. We have had:
    Rye Whiskey Penultimate
    Brandy Bolita
    Xquic
    BA Strong Ale
    Vendemia De marzo
    Guyabera DH w/ galaxy
    Marshmallow Huna
    Rum Huna
    And the IIPA on yesterday is pretty damn good.

    Yeah, the last few months were great. However, that was not always the case. Just when it was getting good they stop it.

    This goes back to what I said earlier, heard mention that this El Cat round will be the greatest hits and next round might be the last one they do.

    Metaphorically, this is 1993 and all the cats who wore MC Hammer pants the year before are denying they ever did. No one wants to be associated with last year's trend.

    The passage of time tends to burnish "passé" into "retro." Eventually, it'll be OK again to admit you wore the pants "back in the day."

    Last el cat? I really don't see that happening. OB just started their own version based off el cat. It's a huge cash injection for the company as well.

    So many acronyms. But I heard the OB one was kinda lame. Compared to the cost.

    Plus I had my head in FL breweries so i was thinking Orange Blossom, Orange Belt.... why would they have a club. LOL

    It looks like there are 2 more DB DOS bottles dropping, instead of just one. One being DB coffee (purple and red label) and the other being DB hazelnut (pink and red label).

    Who thinks there are 3 more coming, perhaps chocolate, vanilla and maple? Then we get 5 week day releases like everything else they do.

    True. Forgot the vanilla already came and went. It wasn't cinnamon like these last 2 though. Hopefully we don't have to wait much longer for release dates if it isn't a full week of beer.
