    I am looking to pick up a good variety of Cigar City Beer if you know of some places I should be trying to stop please let me know preferably in or around Orlando...

    What Cigar City Beers should I hope to find on the shelf in and around Orlando or Jacksonville or even at another stop along the way?

    What else could I expect to find down there that I might not be able to find in NC normally?

    Stop by Grassroots Natural Market in Jacksonville (~5 minutes off 95). They will have a number of Cigar City beers in stock at any time. # below, call for availability. (904) 384-4474.

    When are you coming through? I have some bottles of Good Gourd and Marshall Zhukov for in person trade if you want.

    Cigar City is the main widely-available that isn't also available in NC. For the most, our distros overlap (but NC also has a bunch of good ones that FL doesn't).

    Thanks for the info. I would be interested in the gourd and zhukov but I am actually not going myself, a buddy of mine is and I am passing the info along to him. Any shops around winter park outside of Orlando?

    What is typically on the shelf as far as the cigar city stuff goes this time of year?

    Currently on the shelf in Jacksonville at Grassroots and Beer:30 (as of when I was there Monday-ish): Big Sound, Tocobaga, Florida Cracker, Jail Alai, Maduro, 2 of the Dos Oestes Costas, Guava Grove, and Bolita. Maybe the Warmer Winter, too. I'm less sure of that one.
