Thanks to our name, the two questions we’re asked most often are “Do you guys sell cigars?” and “Are you located in Ybor City?” The answer to both questions is no. However, we still love cigars and we still love Ybor City, which is why we created the Humidor Series®.

Each beer in the Humidor Series® is aged on Spanish cedar (cedrela), the same wood used to make cigar boxes. The Spanish cedar imparts notes of white pepper, sandalwood and other spices.

Our flagship beer in the Humidor Series® is Humidor Series® India Pale Ale. We start with Jai Alai IPA as a base beer and add the cedar during secondary fermentation. The cedar provides a perfect balance with the assertive hops of Jai Alai to create an entirely new experience.

We produce Humidor Series® India Pale Ale year round, and keep an eye out for other Humidor Series® beers in our tasting room and limited bottling runs.

Tasting Notes

White grapefruit and tropical fruit notes dance on a stage of balancing malts led by a smooth caramel expression. White pepper and sandalwood spice notes add further depth.
