Jai Alai Ween Takes Over Cigar City Brewing’s Taproom All Month Long
October 13, 2021
Spooky Spins on CCB Classic Beers to Be Released Each Monday in October
Tampa, Fla. (October 13, 2021) Cigar City Brewing (CCB) announces Jai Alai Ween 2021, a month-long celebration of all things spooky that showcases Halloween-inspired spins on classic CCB beers. Hosted at the brewery’s Spruce Street Taproom throughout October, with tappings of rare and never-before-tasted specialty beers each Monday, the event culminates in the Jai Alai Ween Bash on October 29, featuring a costume contest, giveaways, performers and plenty of frighteningly good beer.
What began in 2013 as a small tapping of several Halloween candy-infused CCB favorites has grown to become Jai Alai Ween, one of the brewery’s most anticipated annual events. The heart of the event has always been the bevy of specialty beers on offer, many of which are only brewed once, and all of which are only available during Jai Alai Ween.
This year, each week of October features two special variations of the brewery’s classic beers:
October 4: Pomegranate Margarita Gose & a Jai Alai Ween classic recipe featuring rainbow candy
October 11: Peanut Butter Marshmallow Maduro Brown Ale & Cookie Maduro Brown Ale
October 18: Blueberry Frost Proof Belgian-style White Ale & Raspberry Frost Proof Belgian-style White Ale
October 25: Candy Corn Jai Alai IPA & Lemon Candy Jai Low IPA
These beers have been produced in exceedingly limited quantities and are sure to disappear quickly!
The Jai Alai Ween Bash will take place on October 29, headlined by the release of two versions of CCB’s most sought after beer, Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout. One keg of Hunahpu’s will be costumed in caramel candy, and another will be dressed in chocolate candy and peanut. These rare treats will pour alongside this season’s final keg of award-winning Good Gourd Imperial Pumpkin Ale. The Bash will deliver beer-soaked spookiness featuring a fortune teller, skeleton performers, a DJ spinning chilling tunes, CCB giveaways and a costume contest with winners taking home CCB gift cards and other goodies.
