Cigar City Brewing's anticipated annual beer release/celebration, Hunahpu's Day, is right around the corner. To get beer buffs locally and beyond even more excited about the festival, which commemorates the release of Hunahpu's Imperial Stout at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium, the pioneering brewery has unveiled its bill of attending breweries.
Keeping pace with tradition, there's a combination of local, national and international guests.
"Which ones are you most excited for?" said Cigar City in a post on the Hunahpu's Day Facebook event page.
Held during Tampa Bay Beer Week and now in its 10th year, Hunahpu's Day is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 9. Tickets ranging from $200 to $400 are up online, and they include at least four bottles of Hunahpu's Imperial Stout.
For the first time, festgoers who decide to splurge on admission also receive bottles of Hunahpu's brother, Xbalanque (amburana wood-rested imperial stout), and/or mom, Xquic (maple imperial stout).
Take some time to peruse the full lineup of breweries, which is subject to change. And don't worry — the beer list should be here soon.
