Not exactly South Florida news but from a Florida brewery and with a good story attached to it. This Thursday Cigar City will be releasing their newest creation, Homefront IPA, in their tasting room. This is an IPA made with spices and aged on maple baseball bats. Yes you read that right, baseball bats. Don’t believe me? Here’s a pictures.
The beer was brewed for Operation Homefront, an organization that provides support to those in our Armed Forces. Hops for Heroes comprises of six breweries in total that brewed a version of this beer for the cause and are releasing them on Thursday as well. The other participating breweries are Sly Fox (PA), St Arnold (TX), 21st Amendment (CA), Fremont (WA) and Perennial (MO). Proceeds for the sales go towards Operation Homefront.
A great treat just in time for Memorial Day and for a great cause. It’s my understanding we won’t see any of this down in South Florida but if you are in the Tampa area or planning on making a trip up there this coming weekend then do pick some up.
