Cigar City Brewing’s most anticipated event next year is taking place one day earlier than last year.
The Tampa, Fla.-based brewery has announced the 2018 edition of Hunahpu’s Day will take place on March 10, one day before this year’s event, which took place on March 11. In addition, unlike in years past, the event will be held not at Cigar City or Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park, or but instead at Raymond James Stadium in lots 5 & 7, also located in Tampa. 2016 was the first year the event was held at a location other than Cigar City.
This will be the ninth time Hunahpu’s Day has taken place, and the event has historically been the only time that Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout can be purchased. First released in 2009, the 11 percent ABV imperial stout incorporates cocoa nibs, cinnamon, Madagascar vanilla beans and ancho and pasilla chilies.
Next year, three ticket levels are available, with each level including a specific number of 750ml bottles. Although details for this year’s event are still being finalized, tickets to year’s event also included a meal ticket, an souvenir glass and access to unlimited pours of over 300 different beers being poured at the event.
- $200 — Includes four bottles of Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout
