Cigar City Brewing has paid off a bet it had with 3 Floyds Brewing Co., in the form of a new beer of course.
According to a post on the Tampa, Fla.-based brewery’s website, Florida Man Loses Bet is a 8.5 percent ABV rye American black ale. Brewed at Cigar City, the new beer was released as part of a bet between the two breweries based on which team would win the 2015 Stanley Cup, the Chicago Blackhawks or the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Blackhawks defeated the Lightning in six games.
3 Floyds, which is based in Munster, Ind., has already released its version of the beer—also named Florida Man Loses Bet—during an event on Nov. 2. That version was an 8 percent ABV Baltic porter brewed with quinine and packaged in 22-ounce bottles.
Cigar City’s version of Florida Man Loses Bet is packaged in four-packs of 12-ounce cans ($14) and is avilable exclusively at the brewery’s tasting room with a limit of six four-packs per person.
