The Beers!!

No one can long resist the allure of those tiny bubbles in a fine glass of our newest lager, CHAMPAGNIA Italian Pilsner!
One sip and you will dance like a frolicsome colt in springtime ?? # SNL Brewed with first experience malts for us, long lagered and dry hopped with select noble hops.

Cigar City Jai Alai, 6 pack $12.99
Jai Alai, a game native to the Basque region of Spain, is played on a court called a fronton. Jai Alai players attempt to catch a ball using a curved mitt whilst the ball travels at speeds up to 188 mph! Proving they have a sense of humor the Spanish dubbed this game, with its ball traveling at race car speeds, “the merry game.” Tampa was once home to a bustling Jai Alai fronton but sadly all that remains of Jai Alai in the Tampa Bay area is this India Pale Ale that we brew in tribute to the merry game. The India Pale Ale style of beer has its roots in the ales sent from England to thirsty British troops in India during the 18th century. Pair Jai Alai India Pale Ale with beef empanadas, deviled crabs and other spicy dishes.

Hardywood Dreamlike, 4 pack 16 oz, $17.99

8% ABV
Soft, big-bodied, and full of citrus, this pillowy-soft DIPA will have you day-dreaming of a warm summer afternoon.
What’s that in the clouds over there? A dog? A bunny?
No, it’s a tropical DIPA calling your name. There’s no rush to wake up from this dream.
