Cigar City Brewing has announced Hunahpu’s Day 2019 will take place on March 9.
As with this year’s event that took place on March 10, Huna Day 2019 will be held Raymond James Stadium in Tampa instead of at Cigar City or Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park, where the festival took place in the years before 2016.
This will be the tenth time Hunahpu’s Day has been held, 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.
In addition, VIP ticket holders to last year’s Huna Day were given bottles of Hunahpu’s 2018 Barrel-Aged Cuvée, an imperial stout conditioned on Peruvian cacao nibs, ancho and pasilla chiles, cinnamon and Madagascar vanilla beans.
While details have not been announced yet, there were three ticket levels available for Huna Day 2018, with each level including a specific number of 750ml bottles as well as a meal ticket, a souvenir glass and access to unlimited pours of over 300 different beers being poured at the event.
- $200 — Included four bottles of Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout
- $300 — Included eight bottles of Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout
- $370 — Included 12 bottles of Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout
Tickets to this year’s Huna Day went on sale on Nov. 24, 2017.
